BookFunnel is an online tool that allows you to build landing pages and deliver your book to interested readers. Our team uses it to build landing pages for our authors to share their Advance Review Copies (or ARCs) because it’s SO easy and integrates with any author website. It lets you add anyone who downloads the ARC to your mailing list, or you can keep them on a separate ARC list and invite them to join your regular newsletter later, if you’d prefer. BookFunnel gives you a seamless tool to speak directly to those who are most invested in your book — the people who are already reading it!
Jennie earns $10k a month in author royalties. At the end of the day, that’s the goal most of us are striving towards, right? Earning a LIVING as an author, with a nice fat revenue stream. How does someone get to the point where they’re cashing 5 figure royalty checks every month? It wasn’t an accident – it took a plan. And Jennie shared that plan with me in her Women in Publishing Summit interview.
ProWritingAid is a digital tool that helps you self-edit your manuscript.

Using machine learning and years of research, the team at ProWritingAid has built a software that can catch mistakes and just make your writing better.
