Author Site Design

Custom author website design

You've worked hard to craft your book. Let us build you an
audience-catching author site.

We specialize in author website design that focuses on delivering a beautiful, custom WordPress site at a great price.

We Know Authors (and websites)

We understand the unique online marketing needs of authors. That’s why we don’t use a one-size-fits-all approach to building author and book websites.

We craft some of the best author sites by focusing on the features that mean the most to writers. Our WordPress sites are faster and optimized to rank better on all major search engines. We integrate with your social media accounts for improved reader access. Every site connects to Google Analytics, so you can track your traffic from day one — launch day.

Carefully Crafted Book Sites to Speak Your Language

You worked hard on your voice, and we respect that. We design our sites to match the design of the books you’ve written. We don’t use standard WordPress author themes, and we don’t re-use designs. We talk to you, look at what you’ve written, and review your book designs. Then we build to suit. That’s what bespoke website design is all about — tailoring your design to fit the unique style of you and your writing.

DIY-Ready Websites for Authors

The core of every author website design we build is editable by you— even if you’re not a coder or developer. While we’re always happy to help out, we make sure you can DIY if you want. And training is a part of every package — even if you need it again a year later.

Fast, Professional and
Affordable Author Websites

We’ve heard it said you can’t have fast, affordable, and high quality. We disagree. We deliver top-tier author website design services with quick turnaround times at great prices. Our custom WordPress sites are responsive and ready to launch in less time than you might expect. Most of the author and book sites we build are ready to launch in 14 days or less, if the content is ready.

How?

We use proprietary software and methods that let us design and build sites quickly — without compromising on quality. Then we pass those cost savings on to our clients. In most cases, this makes our author sites up to 50% more affordable than our competitors. Now everyone from new, self-published authors to veteran writers can grow their online presence affordably.
