This video tutorial, is the step-by-step process on how first-time authors can set up their first self-hosted WordPress Website.

Your website is one of the most important things to figure out, if you are taking your career as a writer and author seriously.

Your author website, is basically your home on the internet and the hub for your books. Whether we like it or not, it really is how readers, agents, publishers, journalists, bloggers and podcasters judge how professional you are.

This is also the place where you can start to build an email list of readers. A free site is not good enough if you want to take your author career onwards and upwards.

But your own site doesn’t have to be a big deal. It’s not expensive and it won’t take long to set up.

I share a simple step-by-step process from setting up your website with Bluehost, to setting up and customizing your WordPress theme and how to set up your first mailing list using MailChimp 🙂

If you don’t have a author website yet, I really hope you find this video tutorial helpful!
