Sara is a fresh writer with an incredible story that I met on this platform, Reedsy. She needed an ecosystem to house her book(s), her growing blog and her social media. Her story, her way. Sara had an entry-level website already and we worked together to elevate her brand and improve her SEO, and overall professional space as a new author. Sara is an amazing person doing amazing things. It was an honour to help create her space with her.
Michael Brissenden is a name that’s well-known in Australia as a trusted journalist for the past 30 years and also as an incredible writer. He had a one-page website that was letting him down. Michael and I worked together to create a space that would showcase his books along with his previous journalistic work. We created pages for his books, updated his SEO strategy and made sure his site was easy for the user to navigate. We ensured we added information that readers would be looking for as well as treasures like audio samples, chapter samples, links to buy and more. He's active on Twitter and we were keen to incorporate that into the design and we now have an ecosystem that better represents Michael and his work. I had a blast putting this together.
Dianne Yarwood is an incredible new Australian author whose book is to be adapted for TV! Dianne needed a brand new website and I had an idea to play with the titles and hovers in an elegant way to make it easy for the user to navigate. It was so much fun to build from the ground up with Dianne and work through how best to help readers find her and her new book. We had fun showing her beautiful dog, Teddy as we also looked at what she needed in her website in terms of how she needed it to work for her, SEO, sharing her Instagram and most importantly where to find her book. We have a website that we're both proud of. I loved building this website!
Siobhan would have to be one of the most impressive people I’ve had the pleasure to meet. Siobhan already had a website in place that needed a little refresh/rebuild, SEO set up and better usability and navigation for visitors put in place. I love what we put together.
Alexandra Joel is an extraordinary person and being able to help guide her to showcase her writing and let her readers be a part of her life with her website/social media has been pure joy. This was a build from domain to complete creation of the website and social media platforms.
The brilliant international bestselling author, Belinda Alexandra, needed a website after her’s had lapsed. Together we looked at exactly what she wanted the website to do, how it was to look and the environment she wanted to create to share her books. I absolutely adore the ecosystem we created making sure her readers were at the forefront of all decisions.
Matthew is an incredible new voice in crime writing in Australia and needed a website put together quickly as his book was being sold into bookstores and he didn’t have an online presence yet. From the domain to planning to build, we put our heads together and in three weeks and created a site that honours Matt and his incredible book. This was a super fun build.
Sally-Anne Martyn is an exciting new author with a three-book deal. We needed to create an ecosystem to showcase not only Sally-Anne but her books and her incredible style. After looking at the functionality needed, SEO, and working with Sally-Anne's already established newsletter on Substack we then were able to have some fun with some of the more spooky stylistic approaches.
