Today on the Writer's Journey, we've got Evan Gow of StoryOrigin! A metaphorical one-stop author shop for self-publishers. Through StoryOrigin, you can organize your publishing biz, from gathering beta reader feedback to organizing newsletters and newsletter swaps, to sending out group promos and reader magnets, and tracking your word count on your next project--everything’s right at your fingertips.
