We understand the struggles that authors face better than most. We've had the same challenges you're probably having right now, which is why we created The Write Kit.
The Write Kit is a whole new way of thinking about your work and what it means to be successful. We help you create a writer’s life that’s fulfilling and complete. We teach you how to find the time to devote to yourself as an artist and connect with readers, while providing you with specialized tools to build your audience.
After 20 years experience in the creative arts and technology, we noticed we were creating the same workflows and systems over and over again. We were also spending too much time researching the latest best practices used to grow readership and reach.
It was time to turn our collective knowledge into a program that others could follow–even those with very little experience with book publishing and online marketing. And so the Whole Artist Marketing course was born. Knowing best practices is helpful, but without the tools to implement them, they don't really get you anywhere.
The Authors Application Suite soon followed. We designed and built it from the ground up. It's our belief that software should get our of your way so you can keep moving forward. Our goal is to make things as simple and enoyable as possible, so you can keep focused on what you really love to do: write.
