So you step up your blogging, sign up for Facebook, Twitter and whatever other social networking sites are hip at the moment, and you launch your official website.
But every once in a while, you've got switch things up so that people will continue to be interested, which is precisely what I'm doing with www.christabanister.com as we speak. And now that I'm in the process of making tweaks, I wanted to ask you, our loyal Scribble Chick readers for your feedback on the following...
And to sweeten the pot a little, the first five people who respond will win an autographed copy of one of my novels (your choice). As always, thanks for taking the time to read, and please let us know if there's anything you'd like us to address in future posts.
1)What components do you like seeing on your favorite authors' websites? What could I add that would make you want to visit regularly?
2)If you're a writer, would you enjoy reading a special section that gave specific tips about the craft, writing for publication, etc.?
3)Do you like websites that are basically the author's blog? Or a more of a standalone page like I have with links to everything else? Why?
4)Do you like receiving regular author e-newsletters? Why or why not? And if you like them, what makes one an absolute must-read?
5)Any other feedback/thoughts? Please don't hesitate to let me know...
