When I completed my first romance novel and was ready to start pitching to publishers, I knew I had to build a brand which included graphics that looked the same across all forms of social media. Since my first book was based in Columbia and my second in Mexico, I decided a global look would be appropriate. My initial website banner was a map of the world, like my blog banner above.
Three years later, and ten more books, my brand needs a face lift.
I have started with my website. I looked at dozens of websites by some of the most successful authors in the industry before selecting the elements I wanted to include in mine.
I invite you to check out my website and tell me what you think. Please be honest. Is it easy to maneuver? Is it intuitive?
There are twenty pages on this website and nearly 100 links, so I’m positive I’ve missed at least one, probably several. The first person to find a messed up link, or one that doesn’t take you to the right place, will receive a prize! Be sure to post the page and the link in the comments below so I know what needs to be fixed – and who gets a prize. 🙂
Several may win because there’s one prize for each missed link. (Hoping this doesn’t get embarrassing!)
