Responsive Web Site
Most ready made tools for building your own website do the job but often produce amateurish results and seldom provide more than very basic facilities. They are probably not good enough for specialist use. Unfortunately, custom built websites tend to be rather expensive. What we offer is specialist packages that only need basic customisation instead of expensive bespoke work.

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.

The basic packages for bookshops and authors

In the case of bookshops there are additional features as listed above
