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.

E-queries are a relatively new way of reaching literary agents, and the publishing industry “rules” for e-queries are still a mystery to some writers of fiction and nonfiction. Using email to pitch your book to literary agents or editors at publishing houses is often the easiest way to connect.
Let’s say a visitor has come to your author website. Maybe he/she read one of your pieces in a lit mag and wants to learn more about you. Maybe said person is a literary agent who is deciding whether or not you would make a good client. Or maybe said visitor is someone you met on Facebook or someone who was referred to your site by a friend.
The problem is, when your visitors leave your site, they’ll be gone forever—unless you give them a reason to stay connected. Creating an interactive website is key.
Quick! Which is better: print or digital publishing?
Think about it. We’ll wait.
Okay—time’s up. The answer is…
Now, before you starting shouting your case for one kind of publishing over the other or start hurling rotten fruit at us through your computer screen (don’t do it, trust us on this one), consider this.
Don’t be ashamed, font fanatics. You’re not alone!
Fact: Authors are more successful when they adapt to changes in the publishing industry. Having an author website is becoming as necessary and expected as having a business card. And there’s no webpage that’s more important on your site than your homepage. But what should a writer put on the homepage of his/her website? How do you want to greet the world?
GREAT NEWS! Writer’s Relief can help you design your author website. Check out Web Design Relief! We know the publishing industry, and we know great design. Check us out!
