Any website gurus out there?
I'm getting ready to publish my first two novels, and considering associated elements that will be necessary if I'm to make a success of this. One of them is to move to a dedicated Web site, one that can host this blog, offer information about my books, host articles about the writing process and other areas that interest me, perhaps have an e-commerce portal for direct sales in due course, and so on.
I've tried to contact a few people, but so far nothing's worked out. I can't afford high-priced professionals, particularly on a disability income. (That may change if my books are successful, but not before then.) I need the advice and assistance of someone who can help me register a domain and put together a basic, attractive Web site for an author/self-publisher, with the features I've mentioned above. This blog will also have to be ported to it and/or interfaced to it - I'm not sure whether I'll leave the whole thing on Blogger as well, or move it all to a dedicated Web site. (That's one of the areas where I need advice).
Do any of my readers do this sort of thing for a living? At reasonable rates? If you don't do that sort of thing yourself, can you recommend anyone from your experience? If so, please drop me a line (my e-mail address is in my blog profile), and let's talk.
