From Just £395
If you don’t want to spend the earth, but want a modern, attention grabbing, professional author website, then one of our 3 author web design packages will be perfect for you.
From just £395 (then £25 per month*) we’ll produce a website designed specifically for writers, authors, and self-publishers, to promote you and help you to connect with your audience.
Your website will be customised to match your branding, book cover, colours & fonts, giving you a unique website at a fraction of the price you’d be charged elsewhere.
This really is an investment worth making. It will save you time, energy, and money compared to trying to do it all on your own.
*The £25 per month breaks down annual hosting costs, email, and software license fees into an affordable, low monthly cost.
More importantly, it also includes our ongoing support, critical software & security updates, daily backups, & more, which we’ll manage for you, making the technical side of your website totally headache-free.
We want your website design experience to be a positive, painless experience by making it as easy, stress-free, and enjoyable as possible. At Quillsolo we’re here to help you.
Why Do Authors Need A Website?
- It allows you to have a central point of contact that contains all your information and details of your work, rather than it being dispersed across social media or on sites you don’t control.
- It makes it easier for people to find you in search engines, including, publishers, journalists, and the media.
- It helps you to build a deeper connection with your audience and to engage with them in a more personal way. You can also build a mailing list meaning you have direct contact with your readers.

Our websites for writers & authors start from just £395 to set up and build, and then £25 per month.

No! We are not currently registered for VAT.

Once your website is live and you’ve signed it off, then we’ll invoice you for the other 50%.
Payments we can accept are PayPal, Direct Bank Transfer, or Stripe.
We’ll show you how to use your website and provide you with a simple-to-understand user guide.
But don’t worry, we’re not going to leave you on your own!
If you need help we’ll be happy to talk you through anything you’re not sure about, and there are thousands of WordPress videos and tutorials online.
It really is super-easy to use, and you’ll pick it up in double-quick time, it’s pretty much like using Microsoft Word, but we’re here to help if you need us.

This includes amending pages or adding new content, pages, and blog posts which we invoice at our standard hourly rate of £30 per hour.
While the time it will take to add your content is impossible to predict in advance, it’s unlikely that a blog post, for example, will take more than an hour to complete.
The more content you can provide, the faster we’ll be able to complete your website.
Generally, you’ll need to send us:
The text for the different pages you’ve asked us to create.
- An image of yourself (if you want your photo on your website), and your book cover image/s.

- Where you’d like to send visitors to buy your books.
- Any reviews you want to feature.
