Authors On The Web

They are timely in updating and managing my site and I am impressed with their skills. - Nelson DeMille

Website Design + Development

In today’s fast-paced and technology-driven world, readers expect to find the information they’re looking for online. Typically, the first thing they do is check to see if the author, agent or publicity firm that they’re interested in has a website. That’s where AuthorsOnTheWeb comes in. Our specialty is creating websites that are the foundation for building your brand, allowing you to communicate easily and effectively with readers.  

Not only do we know what readers want from a website, we know how to turn them into buyers. Since 1996, when our parent company The Book Report Network launched its first editorial website, Bookreporter.com, we have been talking to readers and promoting books and authors. We now have an audience of more than 1.6 million readers each month at Bookreporter.com, ReadingGroupGuides.com, FaithfulReader.com, Teenreads.com, Kidsreads.com and GraphicNovelReporter.com. This experience puts in us in an ideal position to create sites for others looking to reach readers. Ultimately, our goal is the same as yours: to get readers turning the pages of your books.

More than 225 authors and publishers --- as well as literary agents and publicists --- have built websites with AuthorsOnTheWeb since 2000. Each site is custom-designed to meet the client’s individual needs. An experienced team, including a project director, designer and a producer, is assigned to each project. After outlining a project plan that reflects your goals, we’ll work closely with you on the design and text to ensure that voice, tone and attitude are consistent and compelling. While we know design is important, we also make suggestions for content and features that we feel will best reflect your personal story and brand as it applies to your product.

We pride ourselves on individual service and have been told time and again that this is what makes us different from other web design companies. Our client list reflects this as we have clients who have been with us for many years, a loyalty that we work to earn and maintain every day. In a world where so much under delivers, we over deliver.
