Freelance Website Designers / Webmasters

If you hire one of these website designers, you will pay the designer directly. We are only referring you to these individuals.

NOTE ABOUT UNKNOWN WEBSITE DESIGNERS OFFERING THEIR SERVICES ONLINE: There is no licensing agency for website designers/webmasters and there are many online now who are NOT experienced professionals.

A WARNING ABOUT LETTING YOUR PUBLISHER DESIGN “YOUR” WEBSITE: Many print on demand publishers and publishing service providers now claim ownership of websites they design for authors. Furthermore, they may control that website, and not provide the author with the password or server access. If your book is terminated for any reason, you could also lose your entire website! We strongly recommend NOT paying a publisher to design or host your personal website.
