Custom Author Websites

Why Do You Need a Website For Your Book?

Your author website is a critical component of your book marketing plan and can greatly help you expand your exposure and help sell more books. With a custom author/book website, you can:

  • Share your book with the world
  • Offer a free chapter to read to entice sales and build your email mailing list
  • Give away exclusive content to buyers of the book
  • Create blogs and articles to continue offering your readers new content or insights
  • Build a brand and create a community of your readers and supporters

I would love to discuss your author website in more detail.  Let’s schedule a complimentary 30-minute Zoom chat to get acquainted!

The Author Website Process

A custom author website is an extension of your book and if applicable, you and your services. The design is derived from the visual look and feel of your book and includes the following pages and content:

  • Home page with a 3D image of your book, description, and link to purchase
  • About the Author
  • Read a Free Chapter (optional). This functionality can be coordinated with MailChimp to help build you community
  • Contact the Author
  • Blog functionality (optional)
  • Exclusive content only available via a link in the book or eBook
  • Additional pages as needed
  • Links to social sites

Whether I designed your book cover or not the process is quite simple and easy. After we have a Zoom call to discuss your needs, wants and expectations for your website, I get to work.

All the back-end configuration and setup of your website, including hosting, domains, etc. is handled by me and you never need to delve into the world of DNS, SSL, or any other website jargon.

Once I have the site completed, you get your first look and provide your comments, changes, etc. We work together to tweak the site and when that process is done, the site goes live.

The final step is training you to maintain, update, and expand your website. Via Zoom, I show you the ins and outs of your WordPress site and record the session so you can go back and watch at any time.
