DREAMHOST – Web Hosting

For all of my websites, I use Dreamhost. I’ve hosted websites with them (and many others) for fourteen years. They are by far the easiest to work with. They have great rates, great support, and an easy-peasy user interface. They also have a 1-click install for WordPress, which is a MUST-HAVE for authors.



OPTIMIZE PRESS – Landing Pages (Email sign up forms)

Both of my author websites EliciaHyder.com and TheSoulSummoner.com use fancy landing pages created by Optimize Press. It’s a plugin for Worpress that allows you to visually create attractive landing pages. I use Optimize Press for all of my email sign-up sheets as well as my new release pages. It’s beautifully easy to work with!
