Feeling like an IMPOSTER every time you look at your author website?
Skip the struggle with Tell Your Story Templates! Get instant access to prewritten scripts for every page and revamp your website from ugh! to professional bestseller!
Your website is all about YOU & your books. But unless you are Mary Poppins, talking about yourself is AWKWARD.
Remember dreaming of your first author website? It was going to be beautiful, exciting, and make you look like a legit bestseller in no time. So you spend hours scouring the web, soaking in as much info as you can about starting a website. Then it hits you, typically when you’re knee-deep in an article about something called SEO that you realize… you’re simply procrastinating. Again.
Writer’s block, procrastination, analysis paralysis — Whatever you call it, at the end of the day, you’re stuck with the same thing: The dreaded blank page.
If you’ve ever tried writing an author bio from scratch, you know how challenging it is slimming down your personal story into something brief, interesting, and exciting. How do you shift from just messing around with the design to using great content that actively engages visitors, sells your books, and builds a loyal fanbase? You’re a book writer, not a copywriter!
You just want to scream, “WHY CAN’T SOMEONE DO THIS FOR ME?!”
Imagine, freeing up that entire workload and channeling your creative energy into what truly matters right now: writing your next book.
Does this sound familiar?

Let Me Introduce Myself…
Hi! My name is Colleen
Every day, I help authors build their life-long careers through book marketing at Wild Ink. I’ve helped over 1,000 writers and illustrators build their fanbase and sell books.
With over a decade of experience in marketing, I teach authors how to use their passion to market their books with the readers who seeking those stories. Together, we walk step-by-step through book marketing campaigns, branding, author or illustrator platforms, media training, and book launches.
As a writer myself, I understand the challenges of balancing the art of writing with the business of selling books. Young adult and adult fantasy, mystery, and heist fiction is my jam, but I also freelance for magazines. I’m Co-Regional Advisor for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) San Francisco North & East Bay and a committee member of the Bay Area Women in Publishing (BAWiP).
Great book marketing can not only sell more books, but it can also line you up for opportunities that can change a writer’s career. I’m personally invested in your success. Together, we can give your books the attention and adoration they deserve.
