There are soooooo many tech tools out there used for the various stages of my author career and building the business. I’ll share tools I’ve used at various stages. My recommendation is always to start with the most inexpensive solution at first. Scale as you have more income. (With more income, you can afford better tech and look more professional. Do the best with what you’ve got for now.)

PS. This is a living document. I will update as needed. (As I discover more stuff. As I feel you’re ready for bigger tech stacks.) There may be some affiliate links in here. You know how it works. I wouldn’t share anything I didn’t believe in. I wouldn’t steer you wrong for a couple of bucks.
