Writing a book requires creativity, persistence, and a bit of time. Building a website that takes less time leaves more time for writing. The goal of any author's website should be to promote the creativity in the books and give readers a chance to engage with the material. In achieving that goal, the site should be easy to maintain and serve the needs of the author as well as the fans.

A Step By Step Book Author Process

Don't just build the site, AwareLabs will show you how to market it too. We have 35 tasks outlined in 10 stages.

Setup

Book author websites are meant to be more personal than most commercial sites. Provide contact information so your fans and event coordinators can reach you or your agent. The colors, fonts, and theme should match the book genre you author.

Contact Author

Give fans a way to connect and contact the author. Having a contact page is also a great way to score signing tours.

Book Shop

Sell each book the author has written. Offer signed copies as an incentive to buy from the author's website. Every book sold through the site comes with an email address that will grow the newsletter fan base.

Reader Reviews

Soliciting user reviews not only helps the website sell more books, its also a way to provide quotes and endorsements in third party publications.

Signing Tour

Signing events are the bread and butter of most authors, they help fuel sales at reseller locations, and build reader awareness of the author. Every author needs to start somewhere, list signing events so visitors know where to go and improve the turnout.

Author Bio

Write up a biography for the author. Highlight writing abilities, life experience, and relate the author to the books. Remember to include a head shot as an image.

Resellers

List resellers because visitors like buying books from different places. Promoting resellers promotes the author's books.

Press Coverage

As the author promotes the books, press coverage will accumulate. Include links to any press coverage the author of the books have received. Press coverage builds confidence.

About The Books

Summarize each book. This is the website version of the book jacket. It should entice visitors to read the books.

Fan Newsletter

As the site collects fan names and emails, start sending out newsletters promoting signing events, new books, and press news. The newsletter will drive more visitors to the site, referrals, and generate new fans over time.
