Author Website Setup

starts at $399.00

Reach out to a worldwide audience with WestBow Press's Author Website Setup service.

Having a personal website means that you can be viewed by anyone, anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year - as long as they have Internet access. It is one of the truly efficient ways of marketing your work. With your own website, millions around the world will know about you and your books; you can link your website to forge stronger business relationships with online bookstores, book clubs and author organizations; you can practically level the literary playing field with the more established authors; the possibilities, it goes without saying, are endless.

You can choose to have as many as 10 pages created for your website. No matter how many pages you choose, we will take care of your website’s HTML creative design and content.

What’s more, the domain name registration and web hosting fulfillment are FREE for a whole year.

Okay! How do I sign up?

We will fill you in on the phone and send you a product sheet and order form. Then simply choose your service level, fill out the order form, and return it to us by email, fax, or mail. You can even complete your order on the phone. By filling out the order form, you can tell us vital information about yourself and your book, and about your target market.

For a more personalized touch, we suggest you include your photo and images of your book cover/s. We also encourage you to do a write-up for your site, although a copywriter is also available for those who prefer full content management service. Sending at least 2 or more images to enhance the artistic rendition of your website also helps to enhance the visual feel.*

*Please note that the absence of these materials may cause a delay in fulfillment.

You can also make suggestions for your domain name, though only one will be registered upon your approval. This, of course, depends on the domain name’s availability.

REMINDER: Orders are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.
