Websites for Debut Authors

I wrote last week about websites for pre-published authors. But what if that journey is over, and now, WOW! your book is PUBLISHED?!

Your baby has finally been born, or will be very shortly. You have a cover! Edits are over! Advance copies are out in the world, and hopefully reviews are starting to come in! Are you ready?

Now you really need a place for reviewers, press, parents, librarians, teachers, readers to learn more about you and your work. A place where you really shine and can present your best, shiniest author self!

Below are some recent examples of debut authors, celebrating the birth of their very first BOOK! Note that I am writing this in July 2023, so these websites will evolve as they continue publishing.

Ali Terese’s debut novel, FREE PERIOD, is available for pre-order, and she is supporting its impending release with free downloads for ARC readers, a Substack for book news, and links to add the book on BookBub and Goodreads, all great ways to build some buzz.

Melissa Coffey’s debut picture book is FRIDGE-OPOLIS, a “humorous introduction to food waste, recycling and composting for young readers.” Her website includes a book trailer, information about author visits, and more to celebrate her big release.

Karen S. Chow’s debut middle grade novel is MIRACLE, a book about music, loss, and the beauty of healing. She supports the book with loads of resources for kid, parents, and educators, as well as information about school visits.

Kris Tarantino’s debut is BE MY VALENSLIME, about an unusual monster named Snoodle. It will be released in December 2023, and is available for pre-order!

Publishing your first book is a HUGE ACCOMPLISHMENT! We would love to help you show it off with a custom designed website that is designed especially for you! Send us a message for more information.
