Non-Fiction Author Website

Building an author platform - especially for non-fiction authors or small business owners - can feel overwhelming.

What information and sections should it include, and in what order to be effective? And what can be left out?

The answer boils down to the purpose of a non-fiction author website - to sell books, get visitors to sign up for newsletter and connect with readers.

A non-fiction author website at the very least must include:

  • Author bio
  • Services offered
  • Newsletter sign up form
  • List of books and ways to purchase

Connecting with readers

One of the primary reasons for having a dedicated nonfiction author website is to connect with readers and potential clients. An attractive picture and a short author bio will greatly help.

Just as important, if not more, is to build a mailing list to be able to get in touch with readers directly, and ultimately sell more books.
