Greetings Cody Pendant,
I highly recommend you read Writing Perl Modules for CPAN by the monk samtregar. You can get a free copy of the book from APress. It's a very well written book, and it's extremely useful. It goes into details about how to write modules, package them, and submit them to CPAN. Tregar discusses naming, POD, and module-making utilities.
In addition to the book, I'd recommend reading the following:
Whitepages.com Development Manager (DSMS)
code('Perl') || die;
