I was literally pulled into the internet age kicking and screaming. Honestly, all I could imagine when someone said website design was a lot of work and no reward. Well, Carol Fitzgerald and the team at AuthorsOnTheWeb showed me how wrong I was. They've made it incredibly easy to have a beautiful website that's rich in content, and more importantly, I believe that my web presence has made a real difference in sales. I can't recommend them highly enough.
—Kristin Hannah, author of The Nightingale
Having my website, MaryKayAndrews.com, designed and maintained by AuthorsOnTheWeb was a stroke of genius. My site is updated constantly, revamped when necessary, and gives me a great online presence. Support staff is great, and we get changes turned on a dime so that my online presence stays fresh and relevant.
—Mary Kay Andrews, author of The Weekenders
AuthorsOnTheWeb is great! Not only are they tech savvy, they're author savvy. After all, we're writers, not hedge-fund managers. We have different needs. They know how the publishing world works, and how to make an author look good online. For those (like me) who find the Internet a murky and occasionally intimidating place, it's nice to have these people on your side.
—Eric Weiner, author of The Geography of Genius
AuthorsOnTheWeb is the go-place for website development for me and for many of my clients. I’ve worked with Carol Fitzgerald since day 1, when I literally knew nothing. They are industry insiders who provide a personal and creative approach to designing a website that is user friendly and effective. The entire team is hands-on and easy to work with, and available when you need them. They are always my first choice recommendation.
—Wendy Sherman, founder of Wendy Sherman Associates
I feel fortunate to have found AuthorsOnTheWeb to redesign my outdated website. Carol Fitzgerald and Jennifer Lai understand the needs of authors and the impact of their presence in social media. As a children’s writer, I am thrilled how my new website captures the playful spirit of my books. They were wonderful to work with and I highly recommend this team to any author who needs a brand new or refreshed website!
—June Sobel, author of The Goodnight Train
A website. It sounded all so intimidating. But Carol Fitzgerald and her team at AuthorsOnTheWeb took over and designed a site that looked just as I described, but better! I could not recommend them highly enough — their expertise, patience, creativity and insight make each site as individual as the author.
—Patti Callahan Henry, author of The Idea of Love
I just want to say how much I love the site. It's not only beautifully designed but also captures the nostalgic beauty and heirloom feel of the novel (and future novels). Moreover, it's easily navigable, clean and user-friendly. Over the moon! Can't thank you enough for all your talent, expertise and enthusiasm.
—Viola Shipman, author of The Charm Bracelet (pen name for Wade Rouse)
Jennifer Lai and the rest of the AuthorsOnTheWeb team did a wonderful job designing and building a website for The Second Winter in a very tight timeframe. Not only is it more flexible than I imagined, it is simple enough for me to update myself. This is not the first time they have built a website for me, and I’m sure it won’t be the last.
—Craig Larsen, author of The Second Winter
I am someone with minimal technical expertise, and it has been a boon and pleasure to be guided by Carol and her team at AuthorsOnTheWeb. They did a great website for me. I love their enthusiasm and “can-do” attitude.
—Willie Pietersen, author of Strategic Learning
Ever since my new website ``went live,`` I've received nothing but rave reviews. Here's an example of my recent emails from teachers and librarians:
``Love your website by the way, VERY user friendly and crisp and clean!! I am writing to find out about the possibility of visit from you to our school?``
—Delia Ray, author of Finding Fortune
I began working with Bookreporter.com in 2004, when my first novel was published, and have been working with this outstanding company ever since. Carol Fitzgerald is a consummate professional with a deep understanding of books and the marketplace. She really knows her business and treats every writer like an important friend. With great intelligence, spectacular creativity and meticulous care, Carol and her design team strategically shepherd each book into the world via websites that are original, inviting, and easy to use. I have continually been impressed and thrilled with the results, and I couldn’t imagine working with anyone else.
—Elizabeth Brundage, author of All Things Cease to Appear
I found AuthorsOnTheWeb and Bookreporter.com ten years ago and bless my lucky stars. I've been with them almost since their beginning, and they just keep getting better and better. They are creative, energetic, collaborative and a joy to work with. They seem to have one foot in the future so they always know what's coming and can be there first. They have redesigned my website several times but each one has received raves from viewers. I would be lost without them. I can't recommend them highly enough!
—Margaret George, author of The Autobiography of Henry VIII, Helen of Troy, and Elizabeth I
Thank you for developing an amazing website for me. Carol Fitzgerald and her team are very professional and easy to work with. They come up with creative ways to promote my books and their talent for design layout is top notch. They are competent and timely in updating and managing my site and I am impressed with their skills.
—Nelson DeMille, author of Radiant Angel
AuthorsOnTheWeb is first rate! No cookie-cutter websites here. Original, creative and customized work with speedy udates and revisions. I've gotten a thousand compliments on the look of the site and the ease of navigating it.
—Paul Levine, author of Bum Rap, the Solomon vs. Lord Series, and the Jake Lassiter Series
Now that midaswatch.com has successfully launched, I say “successfully” on the basis of the rave feedback I’ve been getting for the site’s appearance and ease of use. All of this is 99% due to the hard work and clear-minded thinking that you and your colleagues Jennifer and Greg at AuthorsOnTheWeb have brought to this project. I can only hope that over time the content I post on the site will receive such praise!
It wasn’t always easy for your team. I’m an old guy, a veritable antique when it comes to digital techniques and technology. What is intuitive for my grandchildren can be an utter puzzlement to me. So as grateful as I am to you guys for your skill and imagination in designing and setting up the site, equally grateful am I for the patience and intelligence in helping me navigate the tricky channels of WordPress. All in all, a five-star, A++++ performance on your part. I am a totally satisfied client!
—Michael M. Thomas, author of Fixers
AuthorsOnTheWeb have built websites for both my books, and when I write a third, I hope they'll do that one too. They are creative, thoughtful, thorough and so responsive - everything I needed. I'm grateful for their help.
—Maryn McKenna, author of Superbug and Beating Back the Devil
Everyone I've worked with at AuthorsOnTheWeb has dedicated themselves to providing my book, THE WARRIOR, with a site that meets my specific needs. From the elegant graphics and site architecture to the meticulous maintenance and care of the site, the AuthorsOnTheWeb has exceeded my expectations, and I feel the site has provided my readers with a beautiful and easy-to-navigate place to be in touch with me and to find more in-depth information about my book. My website managers are pro-active, resourceful, flexible and endlessly helpful and patient with my many requests. I highly recommend AuthorsOnTheWeb and the professionals who make it work to any author who wants to support a book or books with a website.
—Frances Richey, author of The Warrior
You will find plenty of others who can build and maintain your author's website for a cheaper price, but chances are very good you won't get the level of professionalism I've had for over 10 years with AuthorsOnTheWeb. Their designs are unique and user-friendly; their marketing expertise, invaluable; their tech support, FAST!
—Ad Hudler, author of Man of the House
