Credentials  - Weblium

Books

The majority of visitors will check out this page among the first ones. Make sure you have listed all books in a chronological order or according to series they compose. Add a short preview, a cover (or several cover versions), and an extract from a book to fuel the interest.

About

Tell about yourself – the biographical background, the awards, a couple of fun facts, a little about your style or inspiration. The story on this page should either be filled with bare facts or resonate with your writing style.

Explore

Maybe you would like to tell more about your universe? Maybe you would like to share locations from your books? Send readers on a quest, offer them some merch, encourage them to explore more in any other engaging way.

Contacts

Share the professional contacts – an email, a phone number, the links to social networks. They are important for press, agents, and readers.

Final touch: nice-to-have author website pages 

Categories The categorization will be helpful in case you write stories in different genres, participate in numerous projects, or have some merch apart from books. If categorization seems to make navigation easier, then you definitely need it.
BlogSometimes you don’t need to write an entire book to express your ideas. A blog on your author website can become a cozy place to share some thoughts about life, inspiration and so on.
EventsWhat about book presentations, forum, autograph sessions? Publish the schedule so readers can come and communicate with you.
MediaHere you can place the links to interviews, both published online and filmed, news and press releases, comments and media appearances. Readers will be grateful to find everything gathered in one place.
