The design looks good!  Did you do it yourself?

Nice.  What did you do for the covers?

Expect a lot of spam with your email addy in your contact page

The site looks good but it's obviously a free/template site.

You spend a some cash on your covers, respect them by spending a little cash on a web designer... A simple 3 page site wouldn't set you back much.

Social media links would be good, and a newsletter signup page for new releases

While I respect what you say--because my web design prowess is somewhere between cold shiat and moldy salami, and I definitely need professional help--I am compelled to tell you that I do my covers myself. Well, all but one. But even with that one I explained in detail what I wanted and then punched up the end result.

And I link to social media on my other site:  www.jericlaing.com  With this site I was going for a, shall I say, "cleaner presence."

Yeah...but it's just a template. And it's not what I can imagine. Sadly, just the best I can do.

DarkLancelot: Nice.  What did you do for the covers?


My own photography, a friend's photography, and one is a professional photographer. I also use stock photos from one of those pay for use sites and the "magic" (yeah, that smell is sarcasm) is done in MS paint.

I'd like to learn photoshop, but as it is my writing and editing time is already suffering between work and life and work.

Hey, man. If you want, link to my blog and I'll return the favor. Indie authors have to stick together.

Wow, much appreciated. I'll do the same. Although I make no promises when it comes to the review. I only review when my socks get truly knocked off. Not to say you won't succeed at doing that...I just want to be straight up-front. I'm sure you're down with that.

The covers are professional and appears that you dropped a nice chunk of cash. The weebly site says: "I am an author who uses a free site builder."  I'm saying that as someone who is not familiar with weebly, maybe there is specific audience who uses it like tumblr.  Maybe tumblr would be good for you, too??

The WP site is fine.

/treat yourself on your 10th book with a pro. You deserve it

I grabbed "The Sincerest Form of Flattery." Looking forward to checking it out.

I am familiar with Weebly; it's one of those free site builders like Geocities that has somehow stuck around.

It really doesn't look professional. Sorry Subby.

I hear you. I wasn't so much beating the drum about the wonders of the new site as much as hoping to entice a few people to check out my work. But then I'm sure that's no big surprise.

Clearly I need to hire a professional. Any suggestions/recommendations from any fellow farkers would be most welcome. Last thing I want to do is throw money at someone and end up with a big bag of fail, since I've already got that covered.

Something told me you, if no one else, would spend hours poring over those books. No doubt you're excited by next month's publication of "Release the Hounds, You'll Need Your Hands To Keep Nanna Pinned."

Outstanding. I am so glad I joined your Book of the month club!
