A is for Author
Stand-out author websites – plus as much digital marketing support as you need
I’m on a mission to help published authors like you connect with more readers online.
But it goes much further – a great website shouldn’t exist in isolation. It should be a hub for a much wider mix of digital marketing and social media activity. It should enable you to find and engage with more people who want to buy your books. And it should help you turn passive fans into ardent advocates.
And you can have as much, or as little, as you want – if you just want the website, that’s fine. If you want some friendly online marketing guidance, that’s still part of the service. And, if you ever want more help, I can put together a full package of digital support.
A specialist service delivered by someone who knows (and cares)
I know all about the plight of published authors — in fact, I’m married to a bestselling author, and the main reason I got into this world was to rescue her from the poor service coming from other designers and digital agencies.
Along the way, I’ve worked with everyone from debut authors to international bestsellers.
And I bring together four scarce assets:
1. Up-to-date author marketing skills
2. An enviable eye for design
3. Deep technical know-how
4. A dogged determination to make a difference
Initially it was all me and only me. But, I’ve been bringing more people on board to help with the legwork.
And that leaves me free to do what I love best – find out about your challenges, create the concept for a standout website, and help you achieve your longer-term goals with a personalised digital marketing strategy.
Some of the authors I work with –
and what they say about me
I’ve also been introduced to some amazing new names, who are just finding their way around today’s publishing landscape.
It’s work I love doing. And fortunately, my clients think I do it extremely well.
She is always willing to go that extra mile to ensure that the website she designs is expertly tailored to the special skills and qualities of the client.”
Faith knows instinctively what will have the right effect and I couldn’t be happier with the website she has made for me. It has a personal touch that I don’t think I could have got from anyone else. I can’t recommend Faith highly enough!”
She is also extremely savvy about the publishing industry and about what readers are looking for and writers want. Apart from anything else, she’s a real joy to work with.
I’d work with her again in a heartbeat and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her to anyone who needs an eyecatching solution that is completely tailored to their needs.”
Some of the reasons why my clients come to me
But a well-functioning website is like a well-stocked garden. It’s a place that’s alive, and flourishing, and keeps giving you good reasons to come back for more.
So, I want to help you to nurture your website, and make it a hub for everything else you do online. That way, you can connect with more readers and sell more books more frequently to more people.

A simple six-step process
Right up front, I like to get things straight and keep them unambiguous.
So, I have some simple pricing plans (with an emphasis on affordability and value).
When I’m engaging with a client, I always follow a well-proven, six-step process.
I also keep you informed, every step of the way.
And I’m never happy until you’re delighted with your new website – and you know how to make it work for you.
It’s really not that hard
But I want to emphasise one last thing: doing things digitally is really not that hard.
I make it really easy for you to keep your website fresh and updated (everything is built using WordPress, and I can leave you with lots of videos and how-to-guides).
I also give you a step-by-step programme of simple digital marketing and social media activity.
But, don’t worry. If you don’t want to, or don’t have time, there’s no need to do any of this by yourself. With a growing team of digital marketing specialists, I can provide a full package of support for as long as you want it.
