Before I began working with Web Design Relief, I was overwhelmed by the idea of having a website built. I knew I needed one to promote my writing, but didn’t know where to start. Having my site built by Web Design Relief was a great decision and a very positive experience. The team responded immediately to any questions I had. They took the time to include me in all steps of the process, and provided me feedback on everything down to the actual name of my domain. I am extremely happy with the finished product. I highly recommend this service to anyone thinking of having an author website built! Thank you, Web Design Relief!
I can’t speak highly enough about the great team at WR. Within a few weeks of signing with them I was up and running with a professionally prepared submission package and a beautifully designed author website. A contract from both a publisher and a literary agency followed closely thereafter. Enough said.
After I wrote The Infinite Evolution of Spiritual Energy, I wanted a website to promote it. My first thought was to learn how to build it myself. I began surfing the Web about how to build a website, and, well, that didn’t go too well. The time it would have taken me to build a professional-looking site would have been counterproductive because I did not have enough knowledge or expertise.
My second option was to search for people who knew how to design a website for authors. After surfing the Web for site designers, I settled on Web Design Relief because their focus was author-based and their costs were affordable. I gave them a call for an interview, and they were very professional and informative. My liaison worked with me every step of the way in developing and building my website, kept in touch with me through every phase of the process, and never failed to respond immediately to any inquiries I had. I was equally impressed with the creativity, responsiveness and professionalism the web designers displayed in interpreting my desires for the website, and they created a dynamic website for me.
If you are a new or established author and you want to promote your book on the Web with confidence, Web Design Relief is the place to go. I highly recommend them and will continue to work with them for the ongoing management of my website.
“The team at Web Design Relief made the website creation process so easy and so affordable. I wish I had learned about them sooner! They took my input and presented some really creative and interesting choices for the look and feel of my website. Too bad I only need one writer’s website at this time. If I ever use a pen name, I’ll call on them again.”
“I asked Web Design Relief to give me a working base that I could modify. I got it, and it’s luxurious looking. Throughout it all, I pestered them over details, and they delivered.
WDR built my website on a WordPress theme, which is very versatile—which I don’t see in other website builders.
The layout of almost every other site out there today is the same: Your content is in rows and columns of isolated boxes. You can try to shuffle the elements around, but all you’ll ever get is an unstackable ‘herd’ of square cows.
I recommend Web Design Relief, with their (inexpensive) do-it-yourself package, and versatile WordPress theme.”
“My Writer’s Relief Design Team translated my dream website into a professional-looking, smoothly-functioning, classy website—a perfect fit. Throughout the process, the team remained competent, efficient, pleasant, patient, and fun—a joyful experience. I rate Web Design Relief/Writer’s Relief FIVE STARS!”
“My tech capabilities are subzero, so I depended wholly on the Web Design Relief Team to create my website. The Team made recommendations to protect me from spam. They applied their skills to satisfy my tastes and address my concerns—all with courteous forbearance. And sweet-tempered Jen, my liaison, was a joy to work with.”
“Thank you to the Web Design Relief team for an enjoyable experience in developing a professionally beautiful website of which I am extremely proud to call my own. I had attempted to develop a website through my own efforts, but was dissatisfied with the end result. I became frustrated because I was spending so much time on the technical aspect of being a writer and neglecting the reason I started writing in the first place. I stopped telling stories. I knew what I wanted in a website, but was unable to make my vision a reality. Finally, I realized I needed help and contacted Web Design Relief. I became part of a team who created my beautiful website. I wish I had saved a lot of time and aggravation by contacting Web Design Relief in the first place.”
“I had to be dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century. But the Web Design Relief team actually made it fun—and listened to me so that when the final design was expressed, it made accessible who I am as a poet. They used my goofy photos and avoided making me, a regular down-home guy, artsy-fartsy (pardon the language). They also understood that I’m not a particularly savvy computer user, so they were very patient with me, listened and responded to my endless and moronic questions, and figured out, when I couldn’t, what I was trying to say and needed. I’d recommend them to anyone; I’m excited about the whole thing.”
“Creating my website was a daunting task. If writing about myself wasn’t hard enough, I had to think about design. I shelved the whole thing for years. Then I found Web Design Relief. From their showing me design ideas to helping me conceptualize my site to making last-minute tweaks, the WDR team was creative, responsive, and very, very patient. Plus, they delivered the finished product when and at the price they promised. I couldn’t have asked for more.”
“The Writer’s Relief Web Design Team came up with a website I am delighted with. They handled my lack of experience with patience and tact. Jen, my liaison with the team, was upbeat and enthusiastic, a real person willing to engage with my content as well as making every effort to facilitate communication with the design team.”
“I am thrilled with my new website; it looks wonderful and I absolutely love it! The people at Web Design Relief listened to what I had in mind and created a beautiful website that totally fits in with the Dracula novels I write, even down to using red for the color of the letters in my name. The results were far better than I ever imagined. They are creative and professional, and they gave me an elegant website that will draw people’s attention. I am very pleased with the work they’ve done. Any writer who wants a distinctive website should check out Web Design Relief.”
“I highly recommend Web Design Relief. I was searching for a company to work with on designing and hosting my new website and they came through. It was a pleasure to work with them. They were responsive, stayed in touch with me almost daily with updates, and answered questions promptly. I was able to get the website designed like I wanted it, and the team added many helpful design features and enhancements, like all the latest connections to social media.”
“The Web Design Relief team has made me a website that is both easy to use and beautiful–I love it! My contact throughout the process was available every time I called, and worked with me every step of the way, patiently fielding last-minute changes and requests. I had an excellent experience throughout this process, and on top of that, I could not be more pleased with the end result. Many, many thanks!”
“Rave reviews of my new website, designed by the Web Design Relief team, stream in. All can see both the hard work and aesthetic merits of my site, one in which I am proud. Not only is the team ready to listen to what you need and conceive, their ardor makes it happen! In this way, it is a collaborative experience. I am grateful for this effort and can wholeheartedly recommend WDR to my friends.”
“The Web Design Relief team made a big difference on my website with their enthusiastic creativity, and offered an excellent array of ideas and options to make the website what I envisioned. I literally gave them a few sentences of input throughout the creation process and they developed a superb website! There’s simple-looking features that are technologically savvy and bring my work to the point. I’m very pleased with their work!”
“With the services of Web Design Relief, I feel I’m on my way to having professional representation out there on the Internet. The design team was friendly, responsive, and thoroughly a pleasure to work with. These people know what they’re doing. They know best how to do a website that will provide a writer more recognition in this business of creating stories and encouraging people to read them. Thank you!”
“‘Wow!’ doesn’t begin to describe my opinion of Web Design Relief! I had graphics ready to go, and Hurricane Sandy hit just as I was sending files. I thought, “I know writers have to have lots of patience…” Within about a week, I got a reply that they were doing everything they could to get back to business and my site was up a week later! It was as if nothing had happened. My rep is outstanding in her service and they are quick to address little issues. One was installing JetPack—a useful bridge between dot-org and dot-com sites that enables someone to access the WordPress.com Reader and get to know the community. Thank you for doing such a great job!”
“Web Design Relief is a REAL relief. Preparing a website is a gloomy job, but WDR did it joyously and perfectly. Pretty too. I am grateful to them. What a weight off my mind. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to spend maximum time at writing fiction. (P.S. I’m not a whiz at the computer, but working with WDR was a cinch. Hooray for me!)”
“Self-promotion has always been a difficult thing for me. I was the kid rubbing my toe into a front doormat, eyes cast down, mumbling, who couldn’t even sell Girl Scout Cookies. But self-promotion is part of publication in our time. Without hassle on my part, Web Design Relief delivered exactly what I envisioned. This website shows that I am making progress with the climb up my mountain.”

“In no time, I had a professional, easy-to-navigate, and eye-catching site! The process was painless, and Web Design Relief took care of all the technical details that had so intimidated me before. Now I can easily maintain my site, update my blog, and refer [people] to a site that shows exactly who I am.”
“I can’t say enough great things about Writer’s Relief and the Web Design Relief team. My website works wonders! It reflects my personality and also the tone of my work. It provides visitors with a good reflection of what I have achieved and hope to continue to achieve as a writer. The design team understands collaboration, understood immediately what I wanted by the few abstract words I could provide, and doesn’t drag its feet taking forever to get things done.
I urge any writer in need of website to seriously consider and rely on Web Design Relief’s excellent design team.”
“I went to Writer’s Relief Web Design with demands that bordered on unreasonable. I wanted a custom site with all the bells and whistles, and I wanted it finished in five days. They delivered! The Best Seller Package met all my criteria, especially the SEO Optimization and Google analytics. I don’t have the time to do all the marketing an independent, self-published author has to do, let alone manage my own site. I wanted the best product available and got it with Web Design Relief. My site looks professional, is easy to navigate, and set up so that I can make minor changes and additions on my own. Everyone was great to work with. My team was patient and kind when I was feeling overwhelmed. It was all around a very positive experience.”
“My website looks amazing. I think you are truly a gift; I’ve been able to come to you with any request and you are able to put it into action. Thank you so much for everything you’ve done to help me promote my books.”
“I was looking for a site that would pass the three-second rule and immediately capture the essence of The Hollow Man. Web Design Relief stepped up to the challenge and hit a home run. The site has become a key component in a marketing strategy that’s reach is now worldwide. The development team fought tirelessly through hurricanes and nor’easters to create an effective tool to drive book sales. They were knowledgeable, fast, and focused, making the whole process effortless for the author. I continue to receive daily compliments on the site. Well done, Web Design Relief!”
“I was impressed how easy it was to work with Web Design Relief in constructing my website. Indicating design and functional preferences, and selecting appropriate photographs were my only initial steps. Their suggestions in further development of the site were and are invaluable and a great saver of time. Spend more time writing. Allow others easy access to your work. Who wouldn’t want that?”
“Today (December 5, 2012) is my coming out! I love my new site! I can’t wait for the world to discover it. Well…maybe that’s reaching a little to high, but I couldn’t have even considered being exposed to the world without the Web Design Relief team. They offered me over a dozen options for my masthead, and when I asked if something could be done, the answer was always, “Sure!” Thank you, Web Design Relief and your talented crew. Oh, and by the way, they did this despite that very rude interruption from Hurricane Sandy. Pretty amazing.”
“Thanks to Web Design Relief, my site’s been a huge hit with my publisher, editor, agents, and fans. I’m thrilled with it; WDR perfectly captured the vibe of my writing—a little bit edgy and different, a little bit folksy and lyrical. The site is interactive without being cluttered. And the process (and price) were easy for a busy, working writer to handle. I have been recommending WDR to my writer friends.”
“Working with the Web Design Relief team was a total pleasure. They made the process easy, in-depth, professional, and lyrical. I wanted a site that leaned toward the bohemian and yet held an edge of minimalist sophistication. I couldn’t be happier with my very inviting and creative site! We should win awards with this one!”
“I am not a techie and don’t like spending time on the computer unless I’m really writing. Web Design Relief took care of all the technical work for my website so I didn’t have to worry about any of that. They produced a working site that was exactly what I had asked for and asked for comments and feedback from me all along the way. They made a troublesome process completely painless. Thanks, Web Design Relief!”
“One of my mantras is: If you want professional results, hire professionals. My experience with the Web Design Relief team was utterly positive, and their professionalism is exemplary. They were responsive to my questions and concerns, they gently helped me dispel my ignorance regarding what a website can accomplish, and were just flat-out fun to work with. With people like the Web Design Relief team on my side, I feel like I have a tremendous advantage.”
“Thanks you so much for the knowledgeable and professional assistance in setting up my website. I could not have done it without you. The process was painless and I am very happy with the result. All of my questions were instantly addressed and I was given instruction in how to update my website myself.”
“My first novel was published months earlier than I’d anticipated, so when I needed an author website, I needed one FAST. In less than two weeks, Web Design Relief took my handful of ideas and turned them into a fantastic site! I went with the Open Mike package, which was the perfect intersection of design choice and affordability for me. The design team let me change the background and text colors of my chosen template, which went a long way to both giving me a unique site and finding a way to capture the feel and personality I was going for. They took care of all the behind-the-scenes stuff that I know nothing about, and even made some fantastic suggestions that I hadn’t thought of – like adding a “buy now” button in a sidebar on the Home page, so viewers could go directly to my book.
I really liked how approachable and friendly everyone was, both on the phone and in emails. They don’t try to talk you into add-ons you truly don’t need or want, and they can explain things in ways that even the tech-challenged among us can understand. They also worked with me to get everything just the way I wanted it.
I might have been able to make my own website, if I put in enough time and effort, and blood, sweat, and tears. Instead, I put in a reasonable amount of money and let the friendly experts at Web Design Relief do the job for me. That was money well spent, and time and effort I can put into writing instead!”
