We are a small, dynamic website development company which creates, designs, and maintains author websites for both debut authors and those with dozens of books. While we are in the business of creating functional beauty, we are probably best known for our individual attention to clients and details, along with amazing responsiveness. We’ve been doing websites specifically for authors for almost 20 years, so have seen the publishing industry through a lot of changes, including the way authors are viewed online. We continue to roll with it, now creating both custom and customized WordPress sites.
Every web designer has a different style. To see if we’re the right designers for you, take a look at our designs… they’re well-organized, creative, professional, and convey a sense of the author’s personality.
To find out more about what we do, peruse the FAQ page, take a look at the client list and check out the design portfolio. If you still have time, read what some nice folks have to say about our work in the praise section below and throughout the site. Hopefully what you read will answer any questions you might have regarding our author website development. If you have more questions or would like to query us about doing a website, feel free to email me (Maddee), or use the form below.
We love our work; one of our best qualities is our personal commitment and fast service to our clients. You can read a little bit about us below.
Maddee: I started xuni.com over twenty years ago (who knew I was that old?!). It all started way back in 1998 when I met a thriller writer at a dinner party. He was in the middle of researching a book and asked me whether geophysical equipment could define the shape of a body underground. I was a geologist at the time, but being into earthquakes and landslides, I didn’t know the answer to the buried body question. Four phone calls and many emails later, I’d found the answer, ended up as a character in his book—and the webmaven of his site. Funny how life can change over a dinner conversation. I love books, photography, design, architecture, color, pups, flowers, cemeteries… and I think I have the perfect job. Follow me on the xuni Instagram page and my personal Instagram page.
Ryan: I’ve been working as a web developer since 2000… whoa! I’ve built sites for national companies, governments, power companies, large and small businesses, non-profits and of course, authors. Author sites are my favorite by far, for I am a romantic and adventurer myself! 🙂 I love working for xuni; I have never worked with anyone who cares about their clients and product more than Maddee. I love stories and characters of all kinds, I love ice cream, cereal, trekking and loud guitars. I am eternally grateful for the relationships and opportunities this job has given me. I couldn’t possibly recommend xuni more; try us out, we’re a great crew!! Also, check out my outlaw country band! 😀 RoughCutsBand.com.
very kind words
“It is seriously an awesome website. I have to believe it helped in the sale of the film option rights and foreign rights. I have to believe that interested parties (and some of the sales went by way of competitive auction) looked at the site and said, ‘yeah, this chick is legit.’”Shannon Kirk
“I LOVE IT! Has all the sharpness and pop and color I wanted—just like a thunderstorm about to break. Thank you for going the extra mile. It’s beyond magnificent! Gorgeous. User friendly! Thanks again for all your hard work. And one of the best collaborations I’ve ever had!”Kim Powers
“I love, love, love the design! I can’t tell you enough how much I appreciate your attention to detail, your sense of style, and your professionalism. On a side note, you are one of the nicest, most professional people I’ve ever “met.” Your kindness rings through your emails.”Victoria Lindstrom
