Some Thoughts on Author Websites at Hunger Mtn

My website, this one,, 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.”
