Importance of a website for your book

I know we stress the importance of this over and over again, but every author should have a website for his or her book. Many of our Spring 2009 authors are hard at work getting theirs up and running before their books come out. Here is one such website, for our book The US Army’s First, Last, and Only All-Black Rangers: The 2nd Ranger Infantry Company (Airborne) in the Korea War, 1950-1951 by Edward L. Posey. Website designer Val Laolagi has created websites for many of our books, and knows what the important components are for a website specifically designed for a book. Check it out here.

So, you're saying: it's not quite enough to have a site for your blog, but also one just for the book. I hear you. Time to buy another damn domain.

Hi Adam,

Yes, it is best for authors to have both a website for their book and a blog. A blog is great because it acts as a place where you can keep a dialog going with your visitors, somewhere they know they can come back to for more information. Your book’s website can serve as an anchor to your blog—a place where you can store information that every first time visitor will want to learn, as well as additional info that will make them a returning visitor!

I saw your recent comment on Gary Moore’s Playing with the Enemy review on Inc.com. Keep up the good work!
