This FREE mini-course contains 10 step-by-step videos that will walk you through the major steps to complete your author website using a special author template provided by WordsandWriters.com. Start with the Instructions below and then watch the video lectures in order.

Instructions For Beginning The Course

There are two ways to proceed:

  1. Register now to receive your author website and then watch the videos. The first video below will show you the registration process. If you choose this option, you can watch one video and then complete the steps shown in that video before moving on to the next video. Or you can watch all the videos once and then go back to each video to complete your site. If you want access to the remaining videos, please go here to purchase the complete course.
  2. Register later after watching all the videos to be certain that you have the skills and motivation to actually implement what you learn in the course to build your own website. If you decide that doing it yourself is more than you can handle at this time, you can always have us complete it for you.  Here is a link if you want us to complete your website.
