I might be an author, but I’m also an avid reader. I constantly have a book going and can get through two to four books a month. Every once in awhile, I read a really great one. When that last page has ended, I stare off into space for a moment, transfixed as I begrudgingly return to reality. I scroll through the back matter, searching for that link that will keep me hooked to the author’s story world… And if I find it, then i’M off to check their website and see what other shenanigans they might have for me to get into.
How about you? Do you ever check out an author’s website?
For this reason, I do try hard to keep my website updated and I’m always looking for things I can add to make my story world to make it more special to a reader. Like my Madison Creek series actually has a game page for those who like puzzles, crosswords, and other fun stuff. It’s not everyone’s forte, but I’m happy when I find things like this on other’s sites.
I also love it when an author gives a bit of background information, especially if they write fantasy or historical books. There’s nothing like getting a little peek into what a writer is seeing as they pen their stories, or what gave them inspiration. Pinterest is a great place for me to find inspiration and I try to collect pictures for every book I write.
So, since I decided to talk about author websites, I did a little visiting and picked out a few of our Inspy authors who have a killer website. I’m only including a very few in this post, but if you click the AUTHOR tab above, you can find links for all the authors who write for Inspy Romance. If you’re just browsing around the internet, why not give them a look-see. You just might be dazzled over what you find.
Sally Bayless has a cute page with lots of bright colors. Easy to navigate and enjoyable to look at.
You can click on the picture to check it out for yourself.
I also enjoyed looking around at her book collections.
Valerie also has some fun tidbits from her farm-fresh series and other articles about healthy living and farming.
Take a look around. Like I said, I try to keep it fun and offer things to read and do.
I wish I could have included everyone because picking just these few was really hard. But you can check out the Inspy Romance author’s page and browse around at your leisure.
So, I want to know…
