Author websites

Establish your online presence with a professional author website

Every modern writer and author needs a website, to showcase their writing and to build their profile – not just with readers in mind, but also agents and publishers. And to make the best possible impression, you will want your website to look professional: to ensure it is informative, engaging and functional, while reflecting both your writing and your personality.

We can work with you to bring your dream website to life, whether you want to revitalise an existing author website or whether you need to build an entirely new website from the foundations up.

Author Website

We’ll start with an initial consultation to discuss your ideas and vision for your author website, including both the design and the content. We’ll do all the technical work of getting your website set up – all you need to do is provide the content (text) and images. We’ll also provide you with guidance so you can keep using and updating your website into the future (so you can add your new books as you publish them, and keep your content up to date).

Most websites: $1000

Includes:

  • One year hosting
  • URL (website address)
  • email address and inbox

Build your own website

Want to build your own website?

Testimonials

Julie was fantastic to work with. When I approached her to ‘do something’ with my blog and ‘convert it to a website’ I actually had very little clue about what I wanted.

Julie’s intuitive approach and excellent questions allowed my half-formed ideas to take shape. She is efficient, quick and responsive, and I recommend her unreservedly.

Her follow-up is also fantastic. She fixed any lingering issues, allowing me to get the most out of my new website.

Rashida Murphy, Author, The Historian's Daughter
Julie dropped out of heaven just when I needed her – I had a looming grant application deadline and needed a professional website to showcase past community arts and writing projects, as well as a blog/newsletter to keep in touch with my mailing list.
Julie helped me clarify my website’s purpose and simplify its content and structure. She pulled it all together in less than a week, working quickly with meticulous attention to both detail and presentation. As an author herself, Julie was invaluable in helping me select which content was most important to include. I could not be happier with the result.
Nicola-Jane le Breton, Community Writing Facilitator & Publishing Consultant

My blog was sadly in need of an upgrade, positively shabby. Julie has transformed it into a very beautiful house of books and writing. She works fast and is very helpful and intuitive.
