Authors must have their own mobile-friendly, professional-looking website. This is absolutely essential if you have any plans to sell your book. I’ve developed 100s of websites in the last 20 years, and although a lot has changed some things remain fundamental.
There are a lot of pieces to put together when it comes to creating an author website. Some are critical, so are optional.
Obviously included is your author bio and book information. I also add a mailing list signup form, an audio reading of your site, and contact info, and if you want I can add your social media accounts and a blog if you want to blog or add videos, etc.
Once your book is complete I can link to Amazon and any other link to online retailers.
And very importantly you’ll need to decide on a domain name. I highly recommend you purchase ‘yourname.com’, even if we don’t use it for this site. You can purchase a domain name from GoDaddy.com or my preferred place to buy them now is NameCheap.com
Here are a few of the author websites I built recently:
