Website: BooksGo Social
Books Go Social is really helpful hub for authors. I use them for a number of promotions of my books. They send out to their massive email list, they do a twitter campaign, they promote in their facebook group and they have masterclasses. The best part is they are very supportive and helpful for authors.

I have used Patricia’s service for both editing and formatting. I can say that does a first rate job. I had her edit my 3 novels in The Caspian Wine Series and format all of them for paperback. Great job.
Just Publish It
Website: Just Publish It
They provide a variety of services. I have worked with Laura Calender on new covers for my Caspian Wine Series. She is very creative and willing to work with me as an author. I love what she created.
I use this to keep track of my meetings and deadlines.
I’ve just recently come across Google Keep. It seems to work well and is really easy to use. It is another tool to break down events/projects into achievable steps.
I use this to break down my goals into steps, what do I need to do and when do I need to do it by. And it’s free.
I love scrivener. I use it for writing my novels and even for projects that I’m doing
A great way to keep organized and information all together.
I use this quite a bit still but not for writing my novels anymore. I used to but since I found Scrivener I’ve switched over. Word is still a good program for writing your novels in though. And I do still use it for editing and for sending to my beta team and editor.
Website: Site Ground
I like Site Ground. They have been very helpful when I’ve had issues. They have a lot of information on their site that is helpful. And I have had no downtime in 2 years.
They are a really good webhosting site.

This amazing product, Scrivener, is a must for any author. It took me a little bit to learn it but it was so worth it. I think you will find this an amazing program that organizes everything in one place – your notes, your research, your pictures, your novel, your information. I have used it for fiction and nonfiction. I love it. The picture on the right shows how organized you can be when you open it.
Check it out. Click on any of the pictures to learn more.
I use Divi, built by Elegant Themes, on five different websites. I am not super tech savy and had only ever done a few websites before – wordpress.com and through wix. I found Divi so cool but there was a learning curve. But honestly with the changes they have made to it and with the new ones coming out, I think Divi is going to be able to be used by just about anyone. I love the flexibility it gives – no two sites look alike.
