How writergrrl started their web page design journey

Company name

Help for Writers

Overview

I have been where many unpublished writers are today. It took me seven years to get my first book into print. I could have wallpapered my bathroom with rejection letters from editors. But after one nonfiction book and two fiction books (I am penning a third under contract now), I've learned a thing or two about successful manuscripts, most importantly that the differences between one that stands out and one that gets rejected aren't as major as you'd think. With the right tips for revising and editing -- which neither have to kill a writer nor break the bank -- a book can go from unpublished to unstoppable. The Help for Writers website is all about communicating to writers that I can help get their books out of the slush pile and into editors' hands.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Help for Writers is aimed at all unpublished writers, but I'm specifically targeting the young-adult writer audience (those who write books for readers 12 and up). However, this doesn't mean the website should have a "kid" feel. It should be accessible and friendly, yes, but above all else I want it to look professional. While my specialty is young-adult authors, I do want someone writing historical fiction or a memoir to know that they could use my services as well.

Requirements

The Help for Writers website will live at http://www.help4writers.com, the URL I purchased. The page should have strong visual identity that's both professional and accessible. I really want writers to understand that I'm an expert, but I've also been in their shoes (many times, actually). I want them to know I can help.

I will need a landing page and navigation for an "About" section, as well as "Pricing," "Contact," and "Testimonials." I will need a designer who can share files with me so that I can reproduce this identity on brochures and business cards.

Ideally, the code will be simple enough for me to update myself. Alas, I'm a word girl, not a technology expert.
