My website, this one, AdamRobinson.ninja, is an author website, right?
What do I have on it? I have some links to publications, a bio (which I made available for anyone to use at their discretion, like editors or reading series hosts, as well as my photos), a way to get ahold of me, and a blog that I don’t update frequently enough. Simple.
At Hunger Mountain, I’ve published a long essay about how to build an author website, and why.
The key advice comes at the end:
“Ultimately, don’t be afraid to fail, don’t be afraid to ask for help, and don’t be afraid to simplify, simplify, simplify.”
