BlueHost* - basic, no-nonsense hosting for those who just need a web host, especially for those familiar with coding/databases. Lots of free add-ons, including WordPress.


research

Publisher Rocket - great for choosing categories and looking at the competition, but I use it heavily to find keywords for the Amazon 7 and my AMS ads. Really useful tool.


KDP Spy - fantastic for seeing how competitive certain categories and keywords are. I use this all the time.


Writing and editing

Scrivener - a really useful tool! You can write, revise, edit, compile, and keep track of your worldbuilding all in one place.

Email Octopus - This is what I use for Felony Fiction emails! Free up to 2500 subscribers and fairly easy to set up.

Social Jukebox* - I have used this for years. A wonderful way to rotate evergreen messages and schedule one-time (or multiple times in a month) posts. Works best for Twitter.
