For too long I had hidden behind a neglected and weedy blog, thinking nobody would ever come looking for me. Once I had a deal for books two and three I realised that someone, God forbid, might google me. Thus, the need for a professional author’s website. I wanted something fit for purpose, streamlined, sparkling and focused on my books, rather than my random chatter.

I shall be honest, I googled ‘Author’s websites Australia’ and Jin were the first one to come up. Excellent SEO work I say.

But looking through all of Jin’s examples I was extremely impressed, plus I knew a number of the authors who had written testimonials, so that was good enough for me.

Jin has been superb to work with, understanding the need to display one’s books without the burden of heavy promotion, and to tailor a site around my other quirks and interests. He has been patient (a must with me and tech) and helpful.

I love the project because (when I had a few tutorials) I could play around with the site like a chess board, like an art piece. Nothing is static. I feel I have ventured into the 21st century. Plus I know I can call on Jin if I fail to figure out how to update anything.

It’s no wonder that Jin has built a reputation for helping authors to build their online presence. His website designs and simple, functional and elegant and he’s a joy to work with. “I look forward to working with him again in the future.”

I chose to go with Jin because I loved the clarity of the websites he had already designed for other writers and the sense I had that he was listening carefully when we chatted about what was important to me.

The problem I had was that I was unsure how to present myself as a writer of both adult and YA fiction. I didn’t know how to combine these two potential audiences.

I chose to go with Jin because I loved the clarity of the websites he had already designed for other writers and the sense I had that he was listening carefully when we chatted about what was important to me.

Jin was easy to work with – responsive, reliable, and attentive.

I was thrilled to be able to work with someone who has all the skills I lack in the visual and marketing department!

If you’re wanting to work with someone who will gain a sense of you as a writer and represent that visually, go with Jin.

I was amazed at how Jin so beautifully captured the different moods of my novels on the screen.

Go with Jin, full stop. It is well worth the money. A website is an investment in the business side of your writing and Jin is an expert in his field. Can not recommend highly enough.

My website, which I have had for 2 years, originally through Jin as well, needed to be refreshed and updated as I have another book, Nancy Business, coming out in June 2021. I first got my website before my debut, The Nancys, was published and since then I have learned a lot about how I use the website and what areas I wanted to focus on for the refresh.

I chose to stay with Jin as over the years I have worked with him he has always helped me, he is very good at what he does and it always feels like he understands and is on your side. He is excellent.

What’s he like to work with? Responsive, collaborative, patient, highly skilled, excellent designer, always works within the time-period he tells you. Highly recommend.

Jin is excellent to work with, very fast, great eye for design and was able to interpret what I had in my in head to the webpage in such a painless way.

Jin helped me realise what it was I had in my head – to the finished website. I wanted something that appeared simple and easy to navigate for the user but stylish and high performing as well. I wanted to retain the look and feel of my original website as well. Jin led me by the hand and at the end of our one-on-one had a solution for me which I was thrilled with.

Go with Jin, full stop. It is well worth the money. A website is an investment in the business side of your writing and Jin is an expert in his field. Can not recommend highly enough.

I love the new design, I find it so easy to navigate, yet it has all the old information from the old site. I also love how the new website works on mobile devices

Getting the new site together and the mailing list – which I had heard horror stories about from friends who tried to organise their own – was by far how Jin helped the most.

My website was old and looked homemade. I liked aspects of it (not a lot of clutter) but knew it needed a refresh with my new book coming out.

I liked that Jin specialises in authors. Jin was responsive and professional. His directions were clear and helpful.

Getting the new site together and the mailing list – which I had heard horror stories about from friends who tried to organise their own – was by far how Jin helped the most.

My advice would be for other writers considering Jin’s services would be that he does a great job. I really like how the blog looks now.

“Jin was quick to respond, open to suggestions and overall lovely to work with. The website he’s created for us is functional and beautiful, and all the more better to know that he is always on hand to help if any problems arise. Thanks Jin!”

I had run a website for a number of years using templates from a web host. My website looked homemade at best. I wasted untold hours trying to fix it.

When I decided to branch out and go indie I decided that time was one thing I didn’t have, so outsourcing my website was a major priority. I looked at a few overseas website designers and then decided to find an Australian website designer. I was thrilled to find a Melbourne based website designer who specialized in author websites. I loved the look of Jin’s templates so I got in touch.

Jin has been great to work with, he has listened to what I wanted and delivered a website that makes me smile every time I log on. My website is clean, beautiful and works.

Getting a professional to build my website was one of the best decisions I have made in my indie journey. I can concentrate on my writing knowing that I have a great looking website which displays all my books to their very best. I would highly recommend any author serious about their writing to invest a little in a website which not only brings them joy but brings readers and gives them a seamless way to purchase your books.

“Jin made the whole process of creating my cross-platform responsive website so easy for me! He went out of his way to create the web site I wanted. I’m very happy with the result.”

David Hunt

“I couldn’t be happier with Jin’s design of my website.”

Lauren Chater

“Jin is a pleasure to work with. He responds to queries very quickly and is always happy to answer questions in a clear manner. I was delighted with the site he produced for me. From just a few questions, he managed to elicit exactly what I wanted in a website and the finished design is stunning. It looks professional and polished, something I could never have achieved myself.”

Although my site had some decent content and nice images, it was missing the crucial elements of good design. The information was scattered and I couldn’t work out how to unify the parts into a cohesive whole.

I was looking around at the sites of some author friends, hoping to find someone who could create beautiful designs without going overboard. I was impressed by the lovely streamlined aesthetic of Jin’s websites. The packages were also very affordable with the ability to combine different elements.

It looks professional and polished, something I could never have achieved myself.

Although I consider myself quite tech-savvy, I’m not a designer and the website I was using before I contacted Jin wasn’t as professional as it could have been. Jin was able to create a site which contained all the information I needed to convey to readers without overcrowding it with unnecessary clutter.

I highly recommend authors get their website professionally designed. It’s so important for authors to be seen as professionals. When festival organisers and journalists search for information about my writing and services, I want them to feel they can trust me to present well and be organised and able to express what my books are about. A good website is a worthy investment, I actually wish I had invested a lot sooner.

I was really impressed by the way Jin took my few suggestions about the site and turned them into something beautiful. I had asked him to use a colour palette of jewel tones to match the cover of my latest novel and I also sent through some stock images which illustrated the important themes. He somehow knew exactly what I wanted even though I don’t think I had been particularly expressive. I think the final result is exquisite. I can’t wait for people to see it.

“I’m that person who asks ALL the questions, and Jin has been incredibly patient and helpful. Not only does he have all the answers, he has also created a beautiful new website which I can update with information and events when I need to. There’s a reason his name is passed about between writers! ”

I can’t tell you how often I’ve been asked, ‘what’s the address of your website?’. I was fed up with muttering that I didn’t have one, but procrastinated on addressing the situation because I thought it would be complicated, time consuming and, above all, prohibitively expensive. I needn’t have worried – Jin made the process easy (even fun!) and delivered a site which looks gorgeous at an affordable price. He also made sure I had the skills to update it, so the site grows with me. I can’t recommend Jin highly enough.
