Resources

Cover design

I recommend Damonza.com* for their excellent cover design work. Use code PATTY5 for 5% off your order.

If you're just starting out or need low-cost cover design and/or 3D covers, I've begun making my services available to you. Click here to learn more.

Banners and web graphics

I've been making banners and web graphics of all kinds for over ten years.

Web hosts and business training

SoloBuildIt!* - This site runs on SBI! Webhosting, wide variety of templates, full online business course, amazing network opportunities, all the tools you need - all included, for an amazing price. Their sites never go down! For those just starting in business, who don't know how to code, or who don't want to do their own tech support. Highly recommended! - WordPress plugin also available*.

BlueHost* - basic, no-nonsense hosting for those who just need a web host, especially for those familiar with coding/databases. Lots of free add-ons, including WordPress. Highly recommended.

Newsletters and ebook distribution

ConvertKit* - I use this service myself, and have done so for years. Great customer service and deliverability.

BookBoast* - free newsletter swap service! I use this all the time.

BookFunnel - distribute free copies, ARC copies, and more. Want to try it out? I get two free pass tokens per month. Contact me if you'd like one.

* I have an affiliate relationship with this business and may receive a small commission if you join and/or upgrade. I only recommend businesses I personally have used and feel confident will help you. The commission I get does not affect the price you pay and these commissions help keep this site running.
