Overview

As a fiction writer juggling two pen names in my spare time, I understand the challenges that authors face when trying to sell books. I've been a web developer for over fifteen years, so I decided to focus my energy on building custom author websites that are easy to update by the author. Each site is built for the author's individual needs and I take care of all the technical details. I start each project with a Zoom chat where I clarify the author's needs and tastes then I get to work.

NOTE: I get booked several months in advance.
My next available slots to start projects are in March 2023.

Work experience

Web developer and designer

Self-employed
October, 2009 – Present (about 13 years)

I provide a high-touch service where I create a custom WordPress website that is built just for you. I help you integrate your newsletter sign-up form on your website, deliver your reader magnet post sign-up, retrieve and include your Facebook pixel, and whatever else you need help with, including setting up an email address associated with your domain name. You'll have a website that is intuitive to update and that helps you sell more books, get more email addresses, and help you grow your author career.

Projects

Sci-Fi (AlexMBrandt.com)

Custom website for a sci-fi author. The #1 goal is to collect more email addresses, then sell more books. Visit to see the site live.

Awake (https://awakethenovel.com)

Two co-authors wanted a unique website to showcase their book.

Romance Author JA Huss (jahuss.com)

The author wanted a customized, dual-identity website. She created the design and I coded the site to match. Her site includes easy-to-update sidebar content to highlight most recent books in various formats.

Sci-Fi Fantasy Author Immortal Angel (Immortal-angel.com)

The author wanted a darker website that featured the nature of her sci-fi books and their particular setting.

Mike Brown (MBrownauthor.com)

Mike writes clean sci-fi romance and wanted the site to reflect that.

David Gaughran's website (DavidGaughran.com)

I worked with David to revamp his website while keeping all of his existing content. His rebranded website features separate looks for his non-fiction pages and historical fiction pages, custom blog post categories, and lots more.

Cozy mystery author website (ErynScott.com)

The author already had a specific color palette and fonts selected, so I styled the website with that in mind and created slideshow images to highlight her top priorities.

Caro was wonderful to work with. She collaborated with me to determine the kind of site I wanted and then ran with the choices we made to produce a kick-a$$ website. I highly recommend her.

Wendy Church
Caro is professional and I really appreciated how good she was with deadlines and timing, and very responsive when it came to communication. I'm a luddite when it comes to websites, and a new author, and she provided a lot more than just setting up a website. Her experience in the realm of author websites was exactly what I was hoping for when we started the project. She's also exceedingly cle...

Caro is an outstanding professional. Very clear instructions, explanations, & personalised videos (I'd expected generic videos explaining the backend of the site, so very happy). She's patient and generous with her time. I wound up with a fantastic author site. Absolutely no hesitation in recommending Caro's services to anyone.
