Your Best Author Website, with Adanna Moriarty — Bestselling Author and website designer

September 15, 11 am Pacific

As an author, your website is the hub of your business. Every piece of information you put out, book signings, blog posts, release dates, not to mention reviews, interviews, both print and audio/video—all of that information should live on your website. It’s crucial to the business side of writing.

This webinar will not only cover what you need to have on your website. But also why it’s important to be an individual. This is your first impression to the world, a place for you to be creative, showcase your work, and so much more. Don’t fall into the trap of “my favorite author has this or that” …or “my book is in this genre, and this bestselling author’s website looks like this, I want mine to look like this too.” The web world is ever-changing, and so is design. There’s really no way to know when someone else’s website was designed. So have fun with it. Let YOU shine through. That’s what sells books today, creativity and individuality, all blended with great website copy. It’s the marketing dream for your book.

Why am I a member of the WPN? Because of the value it brings to my business of being an author. Part of that value is the webinars offered to me and the opportunity these webinars present. The various webinar topics presented are essential to any author, whether you are a newbie or a veteran just needing to hear what the latest our industry is experiencing. I appreciate the speakers presented; with it comes the fun of various presentation skills that do not allow for boredom. Each webinar is varied. At times, you are drinking from a firehose of information; other times, you are revisiting information stored long away. Do yourself a favor, do your 3-pound universe (your brain) a favor and sign up for a webinar. You will not be disappointed.

Penny Sansevieri is an exuberant speaker, very knowledgeable about Amazon. Her Mastering Amazon webinar covered material that every author should know. She presented the information so thoroughly that most questions were answered before they could be asked. I learned a lot, and there was never a dull moment.

Thank you for the bullet points–the organized presentation. It really helped delineate the paths.

- Tami Davis

Deborah exceeded my expectations. She stayed on topic and displayed a high degree of professional expertise. I was most impressed with the detailed attention she gave to cover submissions. She made sure that each participant was acknowledged and benefited from the seminar.  Clearly, a true professional.

- Jack Gregg

The depth of Kathleen Kaiser’s book marketing knowledge is amazing. She covered so much that I didn’t even know about in her Book Marketing 101 webinar. I immediately began implementing some of her suggestions. I also found Adanna Moriarty’s tech input valuable. Thank you Kathleen and Adanna!

Thank you for putting on these webinars, especially this year. Being able to participate virtually has been much appreciated when we are all so isolated from other local writers!

I thought the presenter was very knowledgeable, professional, well-spoken, and informative.

– Tamar Davis

Kathleen Kaiser’s presentations always give me the confidence I’m getting insider information I can trust and use as a basis for my creative and marketing decisions. For where I am – still in the writing stage – it was excellent information for anticipating what lies ahead and how I can start preparing for that now.

- Ann Arens

Not knowing where to turn having just finished a book with my partner, I was thrilled to find Kathleen Kaiser’s Book Marketing 101. It introduced us to the terms, organizations, and websites that we will need in order to hopefully make our book a success!
