Website Design for Authors

Whether you have written one book or one hundred having a separate website designed for you as an author is always a good idea because:

  • it helps readers identify with you and gain the confidence they need to buy your work
  • it offers an online space for generic information about you
  • it increases your exposure to publishers
  • (optionally) you can run a blog covering a wider range of topics
  • you can make readers aware of your other work
  • you can offer all of your books for sale under one roof and either direct visitors to services like Amazon or sell them direct cutting out the commissions of third parties.

Book Preview is part of the Link2light Design Group that makes bespoke websites for clients around the globe. Our Website Design for Authors service can create an internet presence for you and it will cost less than you think.

We use WordPress as a platform and that means you have 24/7 control of your content without needing to face additional charges every time you want to make a change. It also means we can customise the layout and look as much as you like or you can choose from tens of thousands of templates already out there, many available completely free.

Our services include:

  • Domain name registration assistance
  • Optional hosting ($8 per month) with unlimited bandwidth*
  • Layout and Graphic Design to your specifications
  • Optional eCommerce setup so you can sell your books directly to readers from your website cutting out the commission of third parties like Amazon

* many hosting providers limit your bandwidth which means if you receive too many visitors in any one month your website literally shuts down, damaging your reputation and affecting your sales.
** We design websites for clients around the globe and accept payment in multiple currencies including UK Sterling, Euros and Australian Dollars.

" It's impressively good and it's fast, too. - I don't know of another anywhere near like it. A brilliant concept and an excellent chance at becoming the 'must register' site for emerging authors. "
