Author Resources

A simple list of resources I use in my writing and self-publising process.

Software

BetaBooks

The world’s first reader management software for professional authors. Betabooks is the perfect solution for managing and tracking your beta read process.

  • Offers a limited but powerful free version.

Books2Read

With a Books2Read Universal Link, readers can find your book wherever they prefer to shop. This free service provides universal book links for your books. Books2Read also neatly integrates with Draft2Digital.

BooksSprout

Automate your ARC Team + send Mobile Notifications. Once your beta read ends and you put the finishing touches on your manuscript, you need to send Advanced Reader Copies (ARC) out for reviews that will help you on launch day. BookSprout will let you do just that.
