Today is an exciting day for me. I’m announcing the launch of two new services geared directly to independent writers. I worked in Information Technology from 1990 until August of 2013, when I began writing full time. Over the last year, I’ve been wanting to give back to the indie author community and now I’m in a position to do that while also leveraging my skills as a former IT professional.
As of today, two new services are open for business:
Write Sites: Write sites offers simple, affordable WordPress hosting for independent authors. For $5 a month, you get an unlimited WordPress site, pre-configured and ready for you to customize. With Write Sites you have complete control over your WordPress site and can use whatever themes or plugins you care to use. We aim to provide best-in-class hosting solutions for independent authors.

Independent Author Syndicate: Part of being an independent author is the seemingly uphill task of getting your work noticed by potential readers. Add the fact that today, viral content is king, and suddenly marketing yourself and your books seems like an insurmountable task. Independent Author Syndicate gives you one more tool to help drive readers toward you and your books. If you sign up for this free service, we’ll grab an excerpt of every blog post you make and post it to the IAS homepage with links back to your site. We’ll also post your content to our ever-expanding social media networks. This helps you build exposure that drives traffic back to your site which is where you want your visitors.

It is my sincere hope that my fellow indie authors find value in these services and that they are part of your success. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. You can reach me at email@example.com.
Please help spread the word about these new services. Boosting the signal to your social media networks is a great way to reach people and if you’d take a moment to share this post on Facebook or Twitter, I’d be incredibly grateful.
