Dotty has created several websites for authors of books and podcasts. Authors need a website to highlight themselves as an author and to make themselves stand out in the crowd of other authors. Websites can establish you as the authority in your area of expertise. They can include a blog (highly suggested) and can connect to your social media as well. It give people a place to connect with you. People love to get to know the person that wrote their favorite book, or the most useful book they have read. People follow authors like they do celebrities!
Dotty has learned the ins and outs of selling books through Amazon or a publisher vs selling books directly though the author. Some of these authors do both or just one.
