Booktalk - www.booktalk.com
Talk Ink established an Internet presence with the official launch
of Booktalk in
July 1996. The site offers authors an opportunity to announce and market
new releases to millions of viewers across the globe. In addition, the
site offers content of interest to writers, readers and fans.
Booktalk is an online booklovers' community composed of many of today's
bestselling and popular authors. Personalized author home pages are
complete with excerpts from bestselling novels as well as information
about upcoming releases, author notes and personal hobbies and interests
as well as publisher, literary agent and bookstore information. Writing
related articles by Booktalk authors and others in the writing community
and upcoming literary events are also included on Booktalk pages. One
visitor filled out an onsite form with this comment: I'm so glad
I found you.
In addition to being singled out by Netscape and USA Today Online
as a Cool Site, Booktalk receives many entries into its book drawing,
held every three months. Numbering in the thousands, Booktalk visitors
enter to hopefully receive an autographed book by a favorite author.
One winner sent this thank you:
When the package arrived, I was thrilled . . .. I've started reading
one of the books and I must say you did a great job at choosing reading
material. I really appreciate the items you sent, it really does show
that businesses still care about consumers. Your wonderful prize is
just a reflection at how thoughtful and personal you website it. I've
really enjoyed both.

Booktalk Hosting and Website Design:
Websites and design have changed over the years. It's
now 2002 and we are currently using Dreamweaver software for most site
construction along with the companions Fireworks and Flash. Carla
are excellent examples. Sites vary in size, because some authors have
50 or more published books so they are more complicated. Virtually anything
is possible and we have the resources to make it all happen. Prices
vary accordingly. We do hosting on Booktalk and can register your domain
or assist you in it's transfer. For pricing or to discuss, please simply
e-mail or telephone.
