Website Builder For Authors And Writers
Self publishing your fiction or nonfiction work is hard enough. After perhaps years or decades of the redundant "Thanks but no thanks," or "don't contact us, we'll contact you," letters from literary agents more focused on profit and politics than art, you just did it yourself. Perhaps you finished your manuscript, edited it to perfection, did your own graphic design for your work's cover, and even published it on www.Lulu.com. Lulu was awesome! Through it, you you produced a real book, with an ICBN code, your art in classy glossy on the front cover, the title and your name on the spine, and a perfectly typeset and proofread manuscript, a copyright page, and even a dedication and an introduction by you, the author. Perhaps you've just been approved for national distribution and have made it to the virtual shelves of Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and even the Apple Bookstore. Now you only have one problem! You need a website, you can't afford to pay a web designer, and you don't know a single thing about programming in HTML. Heck, you've never written any code, but you are pretty good at using GUI ("Graphical User Interface") editors for producing text and images. You've proven that the hard way, by having been your own editor, typesetter, proofreader, and graphic artist, critic, as well as supporter and cheerleader when things looked bleak.
