It functions like Word and saves as an .odt file and can be saved in different formats, even Word. Plus you can export your document as a PDF.
Find a ton of free photos to use for book covers, etc.!

-Music for videos: Bensound (sound effects), Tribe Pro, Free Music Archive
Helpful if you plan on having a mailing list
-PayPal.me and Square
If you’re slinging books, you’ll need a link to post on your website to collect payment. You can send and request money with the link they provide, collect donations, as well as create invoices.

There you have it, a basic list of freebies to get you started. Happy writing. Stay tuned for more free tips soon…!!
