I can’t believe it took me the better part of two days to renovate my website. I did it because of advice on what an author’s website should include in order to get literary agents and/or publishers to bite the hook.
Oh whoops, that sounds so crass.
Except it’s the truth, the whole truth, and I’m sticking to it. An author’s website is supposed to be professional. I confess I’m having a hard time toeing that line.
What an arduous task, but it needed doing and I did it. Now I’ve got a static home page — meaning it doesn’t change each time I post something to the blog (what you’re reading now). That alone took a bit of reconfiguring of the website.
Most of the work went into the About page, the one that literary agents and/or publishers will go to to learn about me and my fiction writing without having to actually read any of that writing. The About page includes a link to my resume, which had to be updated, and a link to a bibliography of my writing. I had to figure out how to upload the PDFs to my domain via WordPress and a few other tricks.
Now that this task is done, it’s time for me to get back to the literary agent/publisher hunt.
Oh, and the raven photo? Because I love the ravens that live in my valley. Thought I’d share the love.
