Kate's Guide to Author Websites

I've been working in the internet industry for over a decade.  In this series, I give you the tools you need to create an effective author website at minimal cost.  I also arm you with the knowledge you need if you decide to hire a professional web designer instead.  If you find it useful, I hope you will pass it along.

Part I: What is a "professional" author website and do you need one?

Part II: Choosing your path.
Part III: Design Considerations: Business Before Cool (A Prologue)
Part IV: Working With a Professional Web Designer


  1. Thanks again ma'am! I hope you find it useful.

  2. I'm really looking forward to the design considerations. Thank you for doing this!

  3. Kate,

    Came across your web site via fairyhedgehog. "Recovering corporate cog" - I like (and identify with) that! I'm now a follower ...

  4. Hi,

    just FYI, the link for the DIY website doesn't work. :)

  5. Hahahaha! I think that's the post in which I admonish readers to check test their links!! Thank you so much for the heads-up! It's fixed now.
