Are you an author who is at the beginning of their career, or maybe someone who has already published several books, but doesn’t have their own website?
Promoting your books and your website on social media will definitely attract more readers. So, every author should make sure that they are as present online as they are offline.
Once you invest in creating your own website, you will see that it’s the first step to informing people about you and all of your works. In today’s competitive market, unless you stand out online, there is only a slim chance that your book will have a major impact, no matter how good it is - people won’t buy it unless they’ve heard about it. Create the hype online and wait for your potential readers’ book shopping sprees!
Your website won’t be good if you don’t invest in content and design. Since we’re assuming that you already are a great writer, you can easily handle the content part. What you should focus on perfecting is your web site's design.
What might be a good web design for a restaurant website will likely be a failure when it comes to creating a website for an author. That’s the reason why collaborating with experts in web design like us can only improve your chances for online success - especially if you’re a newbie to all things digital. At Domain Name Sanity, we can set you up with options for regular updates when you publish new works, and we can also host your author website.

Just like your writing probably needs to evoke emotion, to capture your online audience you have to invest in a web design that will leave users in awe. Your design has to go hand in hand with your personality, your style of writing, the brand you’re building and the works you have published.
There are many successful author websites online and we took great care to research what all of them had in common so we could incorporate it into a functional web design that brings new readers on the list. What we found was that there are a number of things you can do to make your author web design user-friendly and appealing.
So, the list of the findings looks like this:
All in all, this will give you the chance to communicate with your readers through your website, give them more valuable information about yourself, your style, and process of writing. You will also hear their opinions about your books and keep them updated on what they can expect from you next. This is a great opportunity to meet your readers on another level, by virtually communicating with them through your website.
The optimal number of pages that your website should have is around six and here’s what each one of them should be about.
Now that you know what your website should consist of and what makes a good author website, we hope it’ll help you opt for the right design. In the end, if you aren’t into designing, as much as you are into writing, you can always contact us. Our web design service costs $1000 once-off and the ongoing hosting is just $25 a month.
