The Importance of Author Websites to Readers

Since I have started writing seriously, I have often wondered if I needed a website. I mean, is it really necessary to advertise myself along with my books? I am shy in reality so boasting about myself and my work has been a slow process. I have got to thinking lately, however, that author websites do give the readers a heads-up about new material and lets the reader get to know the author. The thing that brought this to mind was when I was checking Terry Brooks’ website. I have been keeping track with his writing for years and now his Shannara books are going to be a tv show on M-TV. I was really getting into the articles when it hit me. I go to these sites all of the time to keep track of my favorite authors like Terry Brooks, Zoe Saadia and Heather Graham, so others must do the same thing! Why not mine? Well, probably because it isn’t up yet, but it will be. I encourage everyone to look up their fave authors and check out their webpages. There is so much to see. I love finding out about new books and new worlds for me to explore, and author websites really do that for me. I just didn’t realize how much until I questioned my own need for one.

Check out these author websites and you will see what I mean…
