Essential Elements of an Author Website

In the last two weeks, we’ve talked about author websites. In the first post, we discussed why having an author website is crucial and last week, I shared some tips for how to set up your site using WordPress. Today, I want to look at the essential elements of an author website.

Your website is not primarily for other authors (though they certainly can be readers as well), or for publishers, or for anyone else, but for your readers. Always keep that in mind in what you write, share, and post. Continue reading “Essential Elements of an Author Website”

This poll was taken in my group alone, with many, many responses. Readers could add their faves as well, and we ended up with a list of 99 book, haha. But despite that overwhelming volume, the top 10 rereads in MM romance was pretty clear. Continue reading “Readers’ Top 10 Rereads in MM Romance”

Why You Need an Author Website

The next few weeks for Writer Wednesday, we are going to talk about author websites as part of building an author platform. We’ll be covering a lot of practical details on how to create an attractive and effective author website, but before we get into the question of how to build an author website, let’s first discuss if you need one and why.

With all the social media they’re active on, why would anyone visit their author website? Especially if you are not blogging regularly, what’s the point of even having a website? These are all good questions that deserve a careful consideration. Continue reading “Why You Need an Author Website”
