A book without a website is...well, a book without a voice. Book marketing is integrally tied to the web - it's how nearly EVERYONE searches for information, as well as books on a specific interest and topic. For your book to succeed you MUST have a website as part of your book marketing efforts.
In this age of social media, a website is more important than ever. Websites play a vital role in the way readers discover new books. An author's Facebook and Twitter accounts must have a 'base' from which interested readers can discover more about the book and the author. A website can provide a high-ranking natural listing in Google when the author's name or book title is searched. This simple fact alone would be enough reason to create a website. A website provides an author with a static platform from which targeted, effective messages can be crafted and delivered.
