An adapted and unedited chapter from my upcoming SkipJack Publishing book (release date August 15, 2013) What kind of loser indie publishes, and how can I be one too?
Guess what? If you’re going to write books, you have to have a website. Period. Readers need a place to land to read about you and your books. It’s your online brochure. It toots your horn. It propels browsers to purchase, and points them to where.
Good news, though: it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money, be fancy, or require soul-crushing hours of upkeep. If you want a fancy, expensive, high maintenance website, knock yourself out, of course. In that case, you’ve got this post wired and can give it a brief skim. I’m talking to the rest of you, the ones that fear development of your own website like a plague of locusts. Or a zombie apocalypse. Or a run in your hose right before delivering a pitch to an editor from Random House.
