What we’ve done about it
What we have developed is a purpose built facility and software toolset to create professional grade web sites aimed at meeting the needs of authors (and those in similar occupations). It means that we have to do the minimum of bespoke tailoring and can therefore keep our costs and prices right down.
How it works
We use a template engine and our own website customiser to build each website using the WordPress web development platform.
All we need from you is the basic content and your preferences. We do the rest.
