These days every business must have a website and authors are no exception to this rule. Your author website is your face and represents you to your readers. This is why Blue Crab Books offers a service to create an author website with WordPress.
Having a website gives you a professional image. A website is also the place where you own and control the content. You don’t have to worry about site changes affecting your content.
Share Information on your Author Website
A website is key to marketing your book. Although social media is a good tool, a website enables you to share information about your book to your readers, including where to purchase it. This helps to build momentum and interest for your book, so that when it is released, you will already have a group of people ready to buy it.
Build Your Brand with an Author Website
A website helps readers know who you are and what you write. Basically, it’s a way to build your brand and connect with readers to tell them about your book. In other words, it’s a place where you invite readers to visit, so they can connect with you.
Your Website is Your Home Base
Your website is your home base. Even if you have followers on Facebook and Twitter, this is not your home base. Your website is your home, you own it.
