We are needing a website designed, built, and launched for an upcoming indie book release. The site should be solid and functional, and should allow us to edit basic content at a later date ourselves. The book is a political thriller. We like the look of bradthor.com but are open to suggestions as well. Key components for the website include but are not limited to the following pages:
-welcome page that can be easily changed in the future with major announcements/milestones
-about the author, static page
-reviews page where we can post reviews from other sources and where readers can submit their own reviews that will also appear (after approved)
-appearances and book signings page with a calendar of events that we can update as needed
-connect page with links to authors social media feeds
-opinions, columns, and articles page where we can post other previous writtings of the author
-charity page asking for donations to books for troops
-*most importantly! we need a page where visitors can pay and download the e-book. We will have an ePub file that we want to sell on the website, seperate from amazon, apple bookstore, or other book retailers, where the book will also be sold. We will need our website designer to build a way for us to securely collect payment information, and deliver a secured one time link or email to the purchaser to download the ePub file. We are open to suggestions for best practices regarding this procedure, as long as it does not involve going through an existing bookstore that collects a large fee on each download (Small fees like paypal or google checkout for transactions are of course necessary and ok.)
Timing for the project is 7-10 days. Initially, we would like to arrange a call to go over our ideas and hear yours. Next, we will provide the basic content, and ask you to begin creation. Upon your completion and our review, we would ask that you publish the website to our domain. Thanks for your consideration and for your bids!
