Every author needs a website, and the best author websites are ones that engage and inspire readers to connect with you and your books.

 

If you’re ready to move beyond an author page on Facebook and hire an author website designer, we’re ready to work with you.

Website Design 101 for Authors

There are three common flaws in author websites that frustrate your readers:

 

USER-EXPERIENCE

Your reader cannot find the information they are looking for such as how to buy your current books or the status of your next work. 

 

CONNECTION

There is no contact information for you or your “About” page does not exist. 

 

ENGAGEMENT

Fans of your books come to your website in search of something more. They want to get to know you, your process, your story world, and anything else you can share. This is where an email newsletter and a blog become useful tools. 

At Hugsi Designs, we create personalized websites for authors that make their readers happy. When you make the browsing experience enjoyable and give a little extra to your fans, you will sell more books. 

Authors need more than just a website.

You need a personalized digital strategy to reach new readers, connect with your existing audience, and fuel your creative process.

Move Beyond Author Website Templates

Writers need more than a pretty template for their websites. Whether a new indie author or an established writer with dozens of books, you deserve a website tailored to your literary universe. 

Kickstart Your Email Newsletter

Social media is fickle, so we help authors kickstart their email newsletters. With a starter model and growth plan, you can begin building relationships with your readers that aren’t vulnerable to the whims of social platforms. 

Lead Magnets Your Readers Want

How do you grow your email list? With a lead magnet (something free!) that your readers want. We work with you to find the perfect something that fits your audience and your author brand. 

Whether you're a full-time author or just getting started, a website gives you the credibility you deserve.
