On building an author website – fredrohn.com

It’s finally ready!

I’ve spent the last few months setting up an author website for my father, Fred Rohn. He’s getting ready to launch a new book, Encounters: Relationships in Conflict, and we are going to use as many online tools as we can to market ourselves.

As almost every self-published author has stated in Who’s That Indie Author?, book promotion is the number one challenge for writers who have spent their time writing, not learning marketing techniques. Having an author website, a blog and a social media presence are important promotional strategies.

We found an excellent resource in the Claire McKinney’s guidebook, Do You Know What a Book Publicist Does? I recommend this book to anyone who feels overwhelmed by the task of book promotion.

I hope you’ll take a look at Fred’s new website: fredrohn.com, follow his blog and sign up for updates. Fred is looking forward to sharing many ideas.

Thanks for visiting – come back soon!
