Website Building and Kaye C Hill


This morning I’m going to give my writer friend Kaye C Hill a little plug. Her first book, Dead Woman’s Shoes, a humorous murder mystery was fab, and her second book, The Fall Girl is out this August. She was clever enough to win a competition with Crème de la Crime publishing house, and since then she’s never looked back. Lucky Kaye.

Anyway, amongst other helpful advice, she suggested I set up my own website. You know, to show I mean business! I was flattered by her faith in me. And the idea grew on me. Putting a website url on submission letters MAY give an illusion of professionalism. Yeah? Well it’s certainly worth a try.

So once son number 3 has finished his ‘A’ Levels, I’m going to ask him to help me set one up! So watch this space!

Any tips on website building greatly received!

Amanda, I got a free web building package when I bought the domain name www.ghostwriter.uk.com recently. I won't pretend it was easy to do; it took me a couple of days to get right but at least it didn't cost me anything (I was quoted £980 from a web designer.) Your son however could probably do it in half the time!

What a great site, Helen! :-)

I shall look out for her book, thanks for the tip.

I put together my website with the help of MrSite, it was only about £35 and if I can do it, it can't be that hard.

The books sound great, I'll be adding them to my pile and a website sounds like a good idea - doesn't have to cost a fortune either :o)

Amanda said...

Hi Karen, I've taken Debs advice and sent for a MrSite. Watch this space! :-)
