Having a personal website means that you can be viewed by anyone, anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year - as long as they have Internet access. It is one of the truly efficient ways of marketing your work.

Okay! How do I sign up?
We will fill you in on the phone and send you a product sheet and order form. Then simply choose your service level, fill out the order form, and return it to us by email, fax, or mail. You can even complete your order on the phone. By filling out the order form, you can tell us vital information about yourself and your book, and about your target market.
For a more personalized touch, we suggest you include your photo and images of your book cover/s. We also encourage you to do a write-up for your site, although a copywriter is also available for those who prefer full content management service. Sending at least 2 or more images to enhance the artistic rendition of your website also helps to enhance the visual feel.*
