Authors Online Presence

An authors online presence is the the combination of their visual identity, website, blog and social media and having a strong, authentic and cohesive presence is vital if you want your work to stand out from the crowd.

It can be a daunting and expensive prospect for anyone new to the space or who simply wants to concentrate on on their writing.  I am putting together a training course to teach authors how to take control of their online presence,  however I would like to build it 100% for authors, by authors.

Independent advice on your web presence!

To do this – I need to talk with you, to discuss your experiences, problems and plans for your author website and presence.  In exchange for 10-15 minutes of your time I will evaluate and critique your current online presence to give you professional feedback and answer any questions you may have.

If you would like to get involved – simply fill out the form below so I can arrange a time to call that suits you:

  • What would you like me to critique or discuss with you on the call – What is your website, amazon page, social profiles or if you do not have any yet – what do you hope to achieve – eg: new website, move from to, create a brand etc…?
  • I am based in Dublin, Ireland (GMT) so please include your timezone when sending your best times :-).

Orla Fitzmaurice and her team transformed our sites over a year ago and helps us manage and perform monthly maintenance, (our blog), (my personal author site) and She recovered all our sites, twice, on a Saturday morning, early, from hackers. I highly recommend the service she provides. This is a great opportunity to have a professional web site design review of your site.”
