Website Design

Websites for word people.

You’re proud of your writing. Now, it’s time to build your online presence. 

A professional website is for your readers, your publisher, and you.

Readers

A website helps your readers find you, trust you, get to know you, join your community, and buy your books.

Publishers

A professional website shows potential or current publishers that you are serious about your writing and the work it will take to reach readers.

You

You own your website and the content on it. It is your little slice of the internet to call home and isn’t dependent on the ups and downs of other platforms.

As an author, you need a website that . . .

  • Establishes your expertise or genre
  • Builds a community
  • Promotes your books
  • Is easy to update with events or new books
  • Is designed to fit your unique voice
  • Is optimized for mobile
  • Serves as a hub for all your marketing tools

There isn’t a one-site-fits-all answer when it comes to author websites.

Some authors need a simple site that showcases them and their work, while others need a complex site with multiple features. Some authors are tech savvy and others aren’t.

This is why each potential project starts with a free consultation call (phone or Zoom), for us to decide if we will be a good fit. 

When you hire me to create or redesign your website I will work with you, your author style, and branding preferences to create a professional, designed, and functional author website. I specialize in creating client-friendly websites that you can work with after hand-off.

How it Works

The Conversation

Creating your website is not one-site-fits-all. I want to talk to you about what you are looking for (and what you aren't) in a website. Book a free consultation call to ask questions and talk about the best website approach for you.

The Project

I book website projects 1-3 weeks out, and the timeline for your launch depends on the package you decide on. Every client receives client portal access. In the portal you keep track of deadlines, upload and download files, and access resources.

The Hand-Off

I believe you should ultimately have control over your website. My process is designed around a complete site hand-off at the end of the project. At delivery I hand you the keys. I do have additional services for updates or changes on an hourly basis.
