Whether you’re a published or aspiring author, all writers need to have an author website.
But for aspiring authors, specifically, it can be confusing to know what to have on your author website. One of the most popular questions I receive on iWriterly and Twitter is: “What should I put on my author website?”
Last month, I provided an overview of author platform in my blog titled, Author Platform Basics. If you’re uncertain as to the origins of author platforms and why you need one in today’s publishing marketplace, be sure to check that blog out. Today, we’re going to dive deeper into what you should have on your author website.
Whether you have published books, soon-to-be-published books, or are still in the drafting phase of your manuscript, you should have an author website. This website acts as a home base for you on the internet and allows potential readers to find and interact with you. Social media does not take place of an author website. The two work in tandem to form your author platform.
