It is critical for writers to have an official author website—whether you’re a novelist, poet, or writer of short stories and creative nonfiction.
Hackensack, New Jersey (PRWEB) May 11, 2012
Writer’s Relief, Inc., an author’s submission service, has announced the launch of its sister company, http://www.WebDesignRelief.com, offering custom author websites for creative writers.
President Ronnie L. Smith developed Web Design Relief because it is critical for writers to have an official author homepage—whether you’re a novelist, poet, or writer of short stories and creative nonfiction. “As writers, we know that authors need to impress literary agents and editors—key players in the publishing industry—and we know the value of reputation-building,” says Smith.
All Web design work and customer care is based in Hackensack, New Jersey. Web Design Relief clients can have confidence knowing that their sites are 100% made in the USA.
The staff at Web Design Relief has been working with writers in the publishing industry since 1994; they also have Web design expertise based on experience. Many writers have come to Web Design Relief seeking assistance in developing an author website.
“We’ve been in business for a very long time, helping writers get their work into the hands of agents and editors. Many of our clients asked for help creating their own author website to establish an online platform, so it was only natural to offer this service,” Smith explains.
The team at Web Design Relief will host and maintain the site, install upgrades, and do regular daily backups. With the user-friendly WordPress software, authors can make changes to their own sites, giving them as much (or as little) control as they desire.
The company offers affordable author website design for every budget, as well as a Hosting Care Package that goes above and beyond basic hosting. Authors can choose from templates or have a site custom-built. Each site is designed to echo the writer’s work, personality, and the image they wish to communicate.
“One of our writers wanted a site that reflected who she is—a poet—so we designed a site that was comprehensive, refined, and gave readers that ‘from me to you’ feeling,” Smith explains. “Another client is a writer and a photographer. He wanted his site to reflect both sides of his creativity.”
Web Design Relief offers quality design and a variety of packages to fit different budgets. More importantly, they offer a unique perspective and insight into the business of publishing. They know the ins and outs of the industry and use this specific experience in their design approach.
“Web Design Relief has the expertise to turn website visitors into fans who return again and again,” Smith says.
