Our Clients Love Us
I wish I had set up a website sooner, but it just seemed like too much work, because I never seemed to find an agency that really understood what an author needs. I finally found it -- AuthorsOnTheWeb! The team went out of its way to understand my specific needs (bilingual website? no problem!) and to propose solutions that were both creatively consistent with my work and technically optimal. Not only does my site project just the right image, it was up and running without a glitch within the (tight) deadline we had agreed. Moreover, Carol, Greg and Jenni were all a pleasure to work with despite the distance and time difference: quick, responsive, organized, and generally brilliant. They even trained me to be able to make updates to the site myself (I'd never thought that was possible). I will definitely call on them for my next book and would recommend them to any author.

AuthorsOnTheWeb recently created a new website for me, and I couldn’t be happier. Everyone from founder Carol Fitzgerald to graphic designers, business managers, and tech support proved to be extremely professional and proactive. Their experience and can-do attitude made a potentially stressful experience surprisingly comfortable. AuthorsOnTheWeb’s long history in, and knowledge of, publishing is an added bonus that has proven invaluable.

I wanted a web design team with the skills and talent to transform the stressful, triple-checking headache of my website into a joyful, easy, and efficient process. Authors On The Web did just that—exceeding my expectations! They stayed one step ahead of me and transition my web platform to the next level of high performance. They make it their job to deal with the gigabytes so we can do our job with words. The most genuinely lovely people on the web. I'm grateful to call them my team.

I loved working with Carol Fitzgerald and her geniuses at Book Report Network for my website redesign. Not only were they professional AND personable, they knew their stuff. They made fabulous suggestions, and really spent a lot of time listening and reacting to my vision for the website, and then merging it with what would actually be the best course of action. They are proactive and knowledgeable so that I don't need to worry about reminding them when I have a new book coming out, or when new federal regulations stipulates wording on my mailing list sign up form. End result is a gorgeous and navigable website that I'm proud to share with readers. Highly recommend!
— Karen White, author of Dreams of Falling
I was literally pulled into the internet age kicking and screaming. Honestly, all I could imagine when someone said website design was a lot of work and no reward. Well, Carol Fitzgerald and the team at AuthorsOnTheWeb showed me how wrong I was. They've made it incredibly easy to have a beautiful website that's rich in content, and more importantly, I believe that my web presence has made a real difference in sales. I can't recommend them highly enough."
—Kristin Hannah, author of The Great Alone and The Nightingale
Having my website, MaryKayAndrews.com, designed and maintained by AuthorsOnTheWeb was a stroke of genius. My site is updated constantly, revamped when necessary, and gives me a great online presence. Support staff is great, and we get changes turned on a dime so that my online presence stays fresh and relevant.
—Mary Kay Andrews, author of The High Tide Club and The Weekenders
AuthorsOnTheWeb is great! Not only are they tech savvy, they're author savvy. After all, we're writers, not hedge-fund managers. We have different needs. They know how the publishing world works, and how to make an author look good online. For those (like me) who find the Internet a murky and occasionally intimidating place, it's nice to have these people on your side.
—Eric Weiner, author of The Geography of Genius
AuthorsOnTheWeb is the go-place for website development for me and for many of my clients. I’ve worked with Carol Fitzgerald since day 1, when I literally knew nothing. They are industry insiders who provide a personal and creative approach to designing a website that is user friendly and effective. The entire team is hands-on and easy to work with, and available when you need them. They are always my first choice recommendation.
—Wendy Sherman, founder of Wendy Sherman Associates
I am someone with minimal technical expertise, and it has been a boon and pleasure to be guided by Carol and her team at AuthorsOnTheWeb. They did a great website for me. I love their enthusiasm and “can-do” attitude.
—Willie Pietersen, author of Strategic Learning
Ever since my new website "went live," I've received nothing but rave reviews. Here's an example of my recent emails from teachers and librarians:
"Love your website by the way, VERY user friendly and crisp and clean!! I am writing to find out about the possibility of visit from you to our school?"
—Delia Ray, author of Finding Fortune
Fitzgerald is a consummate professional with a deep understanding of books and the marketplace. She really knows her business and treats every writer like an important friend. With great intelligence, spectacular creativity and meticulous care, Carol and her design team strategically shepherd each book into the world via websites that are original, inviting, and easy to use. I have continually been impressed and thrilled with the results, and I couldn’t imagine working with anyone else.
—Elizabeth Brundage, author of All Things Cease to Appear
I found AuthorsOnTheWeb and Bookreporter.com ten years ago and bless my lucky stars. I've been with them almost since their beginning, and they just keep getting better and better. They are creative, energetic, collaborative and a joy to work with. They seem to have one foot in the future so they always know what's coming and can be there first. They have redesigned my website several times but each one has received raves from viewers. I would be lost without them. I can't recommend them highly enough!
—Margaret George, author of The Confessions of Young Nero
AuthorsOnTheWeb is first rate! No cookie-cutter websites here. Original, creative and customized work with speedy udates and revisions. I've gotten a thousand compliments on the look of the site and the ease of navigating it.
—Paul Levine, author of Bum Rap, the Solomon vs. Lord Series, and the Jake Lassiter Series
...The AuthorsOnTheWeb team did a wonderful job designing and building a website for The Second Winter in a very tight timeframe. Not only is it more flexible than I imagined, it is simple enough for me to update myself. This is not the first time they have built a website for me, and I’m sure it won’t be the last.
—Craig Larsen, author of The Second Winter
I feel fortunate to have found AuthorsOnTheWeb to redesign my outdated website. Carol Fitzgerald and Jennifer Lai understand the needs of authors and the impact of their presence in social media. As a children’s writer, I am thrilled how my new website captures the playful spirit of my books. They were wonderful to work with and I highly recommend this team to any author who needs a brand new or refreshed website!
