Bringing fantasy & adventure alive in this author website for Spencer Stoner @sjcloudxiii

Whether you’re a new author or a seasoned author, it’s important to have a website. We captured the fantasy/adventure elements of Spencer’s series and brought them to life in this website design.

We designed a crisp and clean site with easy navigation and self-contained text. What does this mean? Everything is easy to read and on one page with no scrolling required.

Creating A Multi-Genre Author Website for @ShelleyWilson72 #YA #Nonfiction

Today we are sharing our website design for author Shelley Wilson who writes both motivational non-fiction as well as young adult fantasy fiction (written as S.L. Wilson). This presented a fun design challenge as we needed to provide a website to fit the needs of a multi-genre writer.

Introducing: www.shelleywilsonauthor.co.uk

Shelley Wilson Website: Home

We decided to create a simple, clean design using a black and white color scheme. The site is also designed as a “full screen” site with zero to minimal scroll. The result? A powerful, professional, and elegant look which suits all genres and allows the website to easily expand in the future.

Creating a Multi-Genre Website for Author A.D. Trosper

We’re excited to show you our new website design for award-winning author A.D. Trosper. All of our websites are custom designs. And when we say custom we mean custom. We don’t use a template and “customize” that. We start with a blank page and create each site from scratch.

The challenge was to create a website that represented the varied genres A.D. Trosper writes. Rather than focus on the genre, we focused on her author brand and incorporated the series and genres around it. Since we design everything for A.D. Trosper and she is a BHC Author this was an easy task.

The Home Page—This is one of our favorite pages on the site. We created a slideshow featuring ads for her latest titles and audio books. The three slider ads are shown below. New ads are designed as needed.

Custom Slider Images

The Book Pages—These are the pages we built around each genre’s books. There are three book pages (soon to be four). Each page is designed to match the current title and contains book descriptions, previews, buy links, and more. Below are two sample pages from the website.


Dragon's-Call

The Dragon’s Call Novels Page

BBT

The Bound Novels Page

The Fan Page—Something we include on all of our author websites is the fan page. They vary in complexity from author to author but they all contain free, fun items for fans as a thank you. For A.D. Trosper’s site we included desktop wallpapers, phone wallpapers, the map of Galdrilene that we designed for the Dragon’s Call series, a downloadable poster for Tears of War, and much, much more. It’s a fun page to explore and fans can look forward to new items on a regular basis.
