One Central Resource. Finally.
Welcome to our growing online library designed to help you streamline your business time. We curate overviews, lists of resources and how-tos on social media, self publishing, websites and blogging, book launches, marketing and basic business tools.
Author E.M.S. wants to provide you a place where you can focus on your development as an author-entrepreneur. No wasted time trolling the Internet to find out-dated results. No wading through dozens of messages on loops and forums looking for that one answer you wanted. No searching for the same information that hundreds of authors before you have sought. We’re hunting, gathering and adding resources constantly.
