Beautiful Author Websites
Designed for You
And Your Book(s)
Your book is done.
Now you need an author website.
In today’s book marketplace, your online presence as an author is more important than ever. And your author website is at the center of your online strategy. It’s often the first place people will go to learn about you and your book. So creating a site that communicates the message and image you want to present to the world is crucial to your success.
We design websites for authors that are beautiful, affordable, easy-to-use, and integrate all the best practices in online book marketing.
Designed Specifically for Authors
While there are many web designers out there, few are attuned to the specific needs of authors. While helping many authors launch and promote their books to the world, we’ve learned a lot about what works, what doesn’t, and what an author uniquely needs in a website.

Second, most authors want a site they can easily update themselves instead of relying on web designers for costly future updates.
Our author sites are cost-competitive and use an elegant drag-and-drop interface that allows even the least tech-savvy author to update their own site into the future.
We offer two levels of website design:
Do It Yourself
Joel Pitney and wife Laura are the dynamic, talented, patient, thorough and professional team behind Author Your Website.
They transformed our website from focusing on the book to one that explains the breadth of our business offerings, working with us through the process to refine our thinking and make critical decisions. They listened carefully to what we wanted to accomplish; they were responsive and very quick; and they held our hands throughout the process. And given that we write and speak about customer experience, we know the difference between companies that care about their customers and those that don’t.
We could not recommend them more highly!

Our author websites are based on years of experience launching and promoting books. They include what we’ve found to be the most essential and effective elements for authors. Both levels of website service are designed with the following elements:
