About Us

This site was founded by a group of Indie Authors who first met online and then became friends in real life at the Smarter Artist Summit, 20Booksto50K Edinburgh, 20Booksto50K (VEGAS, BABY) and at Mark Dawson’s SPF Live in London.

We started meeting virtually to write together after London in March 2020 – nearly every day. From there, we started a Facebook chat to stay connected.
Sometimes between sprints and in our FB chat, we would discuss projects, our businesses, craft books, and some of the tools and conferences that we found helpful. We tried to keep track of all the good information and who recommended what – but like all things in the era of Coronavirus, it got out of hand.

All the Tools Needed a Home

So we spun up a quick little website and created a searchable database of tools, podcasts, software, courses, and other resources for authors. We invite everyone to submit their favorite tools to help other authors. 

This is a labor of love, so bear with us. We’re doing this between writing and managing our careers. 

You’re welcome to join us, no matter what stage of your indie author career you’re in. We do require you to register for the site and confirm your email address. We do this for security reasons. The site is free to use. You can join with a pen name if you wish. 

We aren’t affiliated with the group known as 20Booksto50K®, but we do hold with a lot of their philosophies.
