"I had an amazing experience working with Nichole on my author website!! She is such a pleasure to work with. Her communication and professionalism is top notch, she was always quick to respond and answered all my questions. She completely understood my vision for my brand, and she was able to implement it in a way that was eye-catching and flashy while still being professional and easy to use. You can just tell she's an avid reader herself, because she had a nuanced understanding of what readers want (but also a savvy awareness of how I, as the author, can spotlight the content I want them to see). All her suggestions were so clever and perfectly executed. The finished product is STUNNING!! And I'm amazed at how it looks as good on mobile as it does on desktop. I seriously keep pulling up the website over and over to look at it because it's just so beautiful.  There were a few technical aspects I didn't understand, and Nichole held my hand through the process and made it totally painless. I cannot recommend Nichole highly enough! Authors, trust me, HIRE HER!!!"

"I was always a little embarrassed of my DIY site before, but now I am so eager to give out my URL because I'm really proud of how it looks. As my career progresses and I have a lot more eyes on me and my books, it's a big weight off my shoulders to know that I have an online presence that reflects my brand so beautifully."

When and how do I book You?

Will you design my logos?

How do I prepare?

What builder do we use?



Here are answers to some commonly asked questions

Wait but what about...

Your website is built and customized in Squarespace, as it's an easy-to-use, customizable, one-stop-shop for success.

  • Easy-To-Use: It's one of the easiest to learn website builders out there, and coupled with your how-to-training, you'll feel confident updating content (such as when you publish more books!). 

  • Customizable & Responsible Design: Customizable to your brand and style, with responsive, mobile-friendly design, so your site is beautiful and organized on ALL devices.

  • One-Stop-Shop: There's no need for 3rd party integrations if you want a blog OR an e-commerce shop, it is ALL done within Squarespace (including domain hosting!). 

Squarespace does require an annual subscription, but pricing is comparable to other major web builders.

What builder do we use?

Once you have your spot booked, you will recieve a questionnaire + guide that let's you know what I need to complete your semi-custom project!

For now, here are some pointers on the content I will need:

  • Branding (e.g., logos, color palette, etc. )
  • Media (e.g., headshots, book mockups, etc.)
  • Copy (i.e., all the written content on your website, such as your bio)

How do I prepare?

While the template customization package does not already include brand design, you will be able to add on this service upon booking.

At a minimum, you'll recieve the following for a $750 investment:

  • Primary Logo
  • Submark
  • Color Palette
  • Font Selection

Additional brand assets, such as add additional logos, book mockups, business cards, etc., are also available.

Will you design my logos?

First things first, use the button below to fill out the inquiry form. I will reach out to set up a call, or we can chat via email to discuss any questions and to build out your package. Once we've decided on what your package will look like to best achieve your goals, I will send over a proposal. All projects require a 25% non-refundable deposit and contract signature in order to reserve your Start Date.

The fantasy-obsessed TBR reader with a soft spot for Indie authors

Hey there, I'm Coco (aka Nichole)! Ive been an avid reader all of my life and a professional brand and web designer since 2019. Because us entrepreneurs love to impossibly fill our days, I also design book inspired pins for my favorite fantasy worlds.

As I’ve ventured deeper into the reader world, I’ve noticed how few authors have a website that reflects the magic they weave with their words. There is no greater or more gratifying career-move for me than combining two of my passions- designing & reading- so I curated a template designed solely for authors so that you can have a digital space that not only directs and informs your dream readers with ease, but reflects the wonderful worlds you bring to life in your books.
