Squarespace for Fantasy Author Websites
Emily Croy Barker Debuts First Novel on Squarespace Website
Squarespace by the Book Is the Perfect Solution for Authors
It doesn’t get much more exciting for an aspiring writer than publishing her debut novel. Considering all the details surrounding this impressive feat, add to it the need for a strong online presence to market the book to the masses! Thankfully, Squarespace has every author’s back!
When Emily Croy Barker needed a website to showcase her first novel, The Thinking Woman’s Guide to Real Magic, she contacted the talented team of Squarespace designers at Fix8 Media in Boulder, Colorado, to get the job done. Experienced in building a number of Squarespace author websites, Fix8 Media was thrilled to help Emily make her website debut!
Starting in the Squarespace Brine template, Fix8’s Squarespace designers built an eerie home page feel with images and font selections that reflect the fantastical world Barker creates in her novels. Visitors can learn more about the debut novel and its sequel, meet the author, and access a number of online extras the author has made available to her readers. A “Buy the Book” button in the main navigation and links out to popular purveyors in the footer give the visitor numerous options to click to purchase. A blog—an essential for any writer and a great way to boost organic SEO—rounds out the new Squarespace author website.
Any author in need of a professional, robust website solution for marketing their books and connecting with readers needn’t look any further than the Squarespace platform and Fix8 Media’s website designers and developers.
