In my book, Tame Your Writing Dragon, I explained why a writer would want to have a website. I also said if readers needed help with that, to come here. That’s what this page is for.
Many designers and website constructors start in the $10,000 range. I’m not going to recommend any of them to you. If you could afford that, you wouldn’t be on this page.
Affordable author websites and customization
Father John Peck of the Orthodox Christian Church has been a web developer for more than 20 years. He in an award-winning graphic designer who designs websites (and book covers), including coding and customizing sites as needed. He does WordPress installations and offers a variety of themes. His turnaround time is about a week for a simple site, longer for more involved work. He is midrange on price, starting at $1,000. He did the redesign of this website and many others. I recommend him to anyone who has the budget. Note: Website hosting is not a service Father John offers. Contact.
For those who can’t afford to spend $1,000 or more on a site, or who just need something that’s simple, I recommend Joel Michael Harshman (nepotism lives), teen tech fiend. He started working on websites after Father John Peck redid this site, so he didn’t design this one, but he does maintenance on it as well as on our church’s website.
