At the Root of an Author Platform is the Author Website.

It is a place where those who you wish to ultimately buy your books receive something of value, something remarkable and memorable. You want them to remember you and trust your words when you debut your book. Your website must deliver something of value to them.

It takes a while to build a social following and an email list, so you must begin early. You begin with a website. There are number of services that will provide you with a free website; however, they use it to run advertisements. Your viewers lose interest in your message and click away from your site to look at the ad. Alternatively, you can have a custom site built by webmasters who don’t know the plight of authors.
