Author Network Demo

Writers empower writers. The "Author Network" is the place for writers, and people offering services writers can use. A system designed for writers by a writer. Be connected to a Network with other writers.

Our current Member's only dashboard/admin panel will be moved, improved and upgraded and turned into the network. Once you log in, and are a Premium User you will automatically be redirected to the "Author Network", if you only have a free membership account you will only access our current member's section, which will be downgraded (all premium features will be removed).

All our tools and features will be on the network, with much more. This is only the beginning - much is planned.

Release date is set for 31 May 2019
