About Andrew Burt

Projects

Various projects, new and old:

Tools and Web Sites

  • Critique.org / Critters Writers' Workshop, for writers and creators in all genres (of which I'm Founder & moderator). Critters was the first writers' workshop on the web and is free to use.

  • ReAnimus Press — a publisher, and offering ebook/print book production services. We work with leading names such as Ben Bova and Ursula K. Le Guin, offering the highest royalty rates of any publisher (for professional authors) and cost-effective services such as scanning, OCRing, ebook creation, cover art, etc. (free for professional authors).

  • Preditors & Editors, a site to help authors and other artists avoid scams, find publishers and publishing related services. I've taken over the site as of 2014 after the untimely death of its founder.

  • Nyx.net, the world's first Internet service provider, which I founded many moons ago (free, donation funded)

  • Aburt's Ultimate Loan Comparison Tool (Many, if not most, loan comparison tools leave out important variables that could cost you money. So I wrote an "ultimate" loan comparison tool for myself, and put it up to share with the world. Enjoy.)

  • .HT Files — a quick way to create and easily maintain template-based web sites. (This page and most of my sites use '.ht' files — notice the URLs that end in '.ht') Shareware tool for you to use on your own sites.

  • CruiseFellows.com Share photos, links, and announce onboard events for people taking cruises

  • ConnectHOA.com Custom web sites for Homeowners Associations

  • Votique.com - secure, anonymous online voting

  • Best Ever Written Readers' Poll — reading list of best works ever written — vote for your favorites

  • TechSoft -- if you need a custom web site or custom software for Windows or Linux (or non-custom, of course). We specialize in making computers do the (nearly) impossible.
