So, you probably don’t know that I hired a very smart woman (and her cohorts) to give me advice about marketing and my website, compared to other writers in my genre.
The result? I’m failing miserably at doing what a web site should do. And so I must revamp. Make things easy to find. Add buy links. Do a bunch of stuff. Ugh. I’m so not good at this stuff. I’m so not looking forward to doing this I’m actually thinking of hiring someone.
Except my car needs repair. It may have to wait until I repair my car. Driving to my day job is still a requirement.
I would love to have Jenny Crusie’s daughter’s firm do my website, but I’m afraid to ask what that might cost me. Those Women are Brilliant. Just look at www.jennycrusie.com and tell me they aren’t. I love that website.
I also like Janet Evanovich’s website. She has contests and games and answers questions. Plus she has Morelli and Ranger. I really like Ranger. http://www.evanovich.com/. I once won bvlgari body gel from Janet Evanovich. And her daughter, Alex, is really cool and lives near us.
I Love the Bloggess too, but more for what she has to say than for anything else about her website. So maybe I shouldn’t model myself after her. Although I really do love her a bunch. She makes me feel normal. That’s hard to do.
What-ever. There will be changes around here. And then I will make Crazy Little Thing Called Dead free for a few days. Just because I can.
So tell me. Do you have a favorite author’s website? What makes it so good?
