Author Resources

Here at Write Your Best Book, we don’t just edit your book then disappear. We stay with ALL our authors through the entire process of revising, querying, and publishing! We ALSO help all our clients promote their books on our website and social media platforms. Tell me another editing service that does that!

As a part of our efforts to assist authors throughout their entire book journey, here is a list of some of our all-time favorite resources for authors. You’ll notice, we’ve only listed a select few. That’s because we can personally vouch for each of these providers, and we feel confident in sending our clients their way.

Create your own Graphics

I use Canva literally every day to create professional-quality promos, teasers, and graphics. But there are templates for every kind of document you can think of on this site! It’s user-friendly, and it doesn’t take a bit of tech knowledge or graphic design experience to create the graphics you need. The basic program is free, but I recommend spending under $15/month to have access to all the templates, stock photos, fonts, and elements you could ever dream of! Check them out now!


Writing and Editing Programs

ProWriting Aid

The mother of all writing and editing programs for authors! Pro Writing Aid is much more reliable than Grammarly and its results are more accurate and reliable. I find it catches more errors and gives fewer “false” corrections. It has a ton of features, and it can help writers check for issues related to grammar, spelling, structure, readability, overused words, clichés, pacing, consistency, and more! You can use their website for free, but I recommend paying the very low monthly fee to get access to licenses for Word so you can work directly on your desktop writing program, as well as a Google extension to help you edit as you write online, too! Give them a try. You will not be sorry.


Literature and Latte (developers of Scrivener) are about to launch V3 of this writing platform, which you download right to your desktop. Inside Scrivener, you can create sticky notes, binders, character sketches, setting sketches, and oh, so much more. Scriveners saves where you leave off each time you stop for the day and brings you right back to that spot the next time you log in. It’s the perfect writing platform for authors as it allows you to import links, images, and more to help inspire you as you write. It can be a bit daunting to learn at first, but hang in there, watch videos, and once you figure it out, you’ll be so happy you now have a tool to help you not just write your book, but structure and plot it, as well! Oh, and once you’re done, you can export it to four or five different document types, including .pdf and .docx!
