Buzz: AuthorHouse.com – Web 2.0 but needs a little spit’n’polish!

By | August 20, 2007

Have you ever wanted to publish a book? Most of us feel that we have something in us that we could write about. Up until recently, getting published was a really difficult choice for most would-be writers, but the digital age has eased the process to such a point that it is possible, and even profitable to write books.

AuthorHouse is one such company born in the digital age that helps would-be writers take their first tentative steps, in determining your goals, submitting your manuscript, marketing your books, as well as designing and printing them. There are some inspiring stories that you can read about their authors in their case studies pages as well find their books in the bookstore.

Whatever services they provide, though, it’s a good idea to make sure that their website is functional. I clicked on many of the pages on the right side of the homepage, and got frequent script errors that looked ugly. You can see the graphic to see what I mean.

This is likely only to create an unprofessional image and chase away new authors as well as customers and casual visitors. So fix the problems, or at least, create an attractive error page!
