Yeah, we’ve been quiet. But there’s a good reason. Okay, a GREAT reason.
There’s a lot of advice in the book publishing world. From ads to social media to KDP vs. wide distribution; everyone has an opinion. Some of the information is accurate. Some of it is hogwash. But John and I approach the flood of advice differently. We think you should do what makes sense for you. We think you should challenge yourself, and we think you should use the wealth of information out there for your business as an author.
We’re The Author Helper. But we’re approaching our role as helpers from a different angle. We don’t want to join the crowded and (mostly) enriching advice community. Sure, we have a lot of advice but we think we have something even more valuable to offer.
Over the last several months, instead of working on blog posts or newsletters or (ahem) books, we’ve been working on a tool that will change self-publishing. Wait! Don’t leave! I know that sounds marketing-y (yes, I’m a writer… don’t look at me like that!) but it’s true. Both of us are authors. Both of us have been doing this for years. And both of us know where authors struggle to make sense of marketing and selling books. So we’ve been hard at work on a new tool that will slip into your author life and make everything easier. And I mean everything.
The name of the tool is ReaderLinks. Here’s a peek at what it can do…
Yes, ReaderLinks actually helps you track your Amazon sales, manage your reader teams, track your promotions, automate your best tweets and a lot more. And we’ve actually added a few things since we shot that video. Like an Amazon description tool that helps your description look better on the Amazon book page. And pen name support. And personal assistant support (for no extra charge).
We’ve made a tool that we use for our own author business. We hope it helps you simplify your life, too.
Then get back to writing 😉
