Websites for authors
A website is becoming a must-have for authors. Publishers are now relying more and more on authors doing their own marketing and PR. But your website doesn’t need to be content-heavy. You need a home on the web where your readers can learn about your books and where PR people can grab your bio, your backlist and your profile photo. You might also want to allow people to buy your books directly, provide free downloads for fans or add a blog – it’s up to you!
As an author myself, I understand the budget-constraints of being a creative. But with my Ready2Go websites, you get the complete package at a friendly price: a beautiful website set up and ready to go, including a blog and contact form, and a gentle hand to help you learn how to update it. The templates are built using the latest templates that are responsive (work on any device) and can accommodate a plethora of plugins, all you need to do is bring your logo, your content and your flair.
More importantly, you will be working with a professional web designer who also understands the publishing industry and the needs of authors. And that’s priceless.
Are you an author or illustrator with a WordPress website?
- Do you need help with content entry, updates, plugins, tracking?
- Do you need a beta reader, advice on writing for the web?
- Do you need help setting up social media accounts and learning how to use them?
If websites aren't your thing, get in touch.
I highly recommend Pamela Ueckerman’s work as a WordPress editor/assistant for authors. She is an excellent communicator with a gentle, pleasant manner. She attends to problems thoughtfully, competently and efficiently. An added bonus is that she is willing to provide written outlines of a procedure she has followed as a way for the client to learn how to manage the task for his/herself if they want to become more independent. Her interest in and passion for children’s books was another reason it was such a pleasure to work with Pam
