Here are a few stories to read this Monday morning.

P.S. One thing I hear every so often from authors is that they will just use their FB page as their author website. I don’t think that is a viable solution even in the short term, but more importantly there are better options available.

If you want to use a social network profile for an author site, you should take a look at Goodreads.com. Unlike FB, it’s set up to promote your books, and GR has a Q&A feature where you can respond to fans, and GR reliably sends out updates to anyone who subscribes to an author.

I would not normally recommend a social media profile, but I’ve seen an author using one, and it works.

Hi, I'm Nate.

I build and fix websites for authors, and I am also a tech VA. I can build you a website that looks great and turns visitors into fans, and I can also fix your tech when it breaks. Let me fight with tech support so you don’t have to.

My blog has everything you need to know about websites and online services. Don’t see what you need. or want personalized help? Reach out.
