Book now and receive 20% off your web design package

Are you ready to start 2020 off with a website that will not only attract readers, but is clean and easy to navigate? Leading to sales!

Your website is your #1 selling tool

As an author, your number one selling tool is your website. It’s possibly one of the most important assets you’ll have in your business. It’s where you will display all of your critical information (book information, author bio, social media links, and more). It needs to reflect you and be easy to navigate for your readers. 

This can be a lot to take on and do yourself, so let us give you your writing time back and let you get back to doing what you love most!

Whether you need a brand new website or just an overhaul on an existing one—I can help. 

Here are some examples of previous work.

How does it work?

Uplifting Author Services specializes in web design from existing self-hosted WordPress themes. I do not fully develop the site, which in turn saves you hundreds, potentially thousands. With so many beautiful themes to choose from, the sky’s the limit.

Here's what you'll get


And Look how awesome this Book Page looks!

Working with Alyssa on my new website was incredibly EASY. She knows design and she knows books, and I was thrilled with the ideas she brought to me for my site. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a knowledgeable, professional designer who will make your site SHINE!

A self taught graphic designer, she has a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications and Marketing from Stephen F. Austin State University. When she isn’t working on designing beautiful things, Alyssa can be found snuggled up with her two children and husband reading a good book in her little corner of East Texas.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, only a self-hosted WordPress site will work. I can help talk you through getting what you need to make your dream website a reality. 

No, I customize pre-made themes. I have included a list of some of my favorite developers below. 

I invoice you at the time of booking. For your spot to be held, you will be required to pay your non-refundable $100 deposit. 

Before the design project can begin, 50% of the invoice will be due. 

100% is due at the end of the design process.

This will start off with a questionnaire as soon as you book. This questionnaire will help me get an idea of what style you’re looking for. Once your questionnaire is submitted, your contract signed, and first payment is made, I will begin the project at your scheduled time.

Once the project has started it will take me anywhere from two-four weeks.

Once the first design is sent, you will be allowed to make up to five rounds of revisions. 

Once the design is final, I offer an hour phone/screen share call to walk you through updating your site. I also have tutorials set up that you will have access to. 

I also offer Website maintenance on a monthly and yearly basis. 

I prefer to communicate via email and Facebook Messenger. Email if it’s something important I will need to remember to do later. Facebook Messenger for back and forth brainstorming. 

I only accept payments through PayPal. If you do not have a PayPal account, you may pay invoices by inputting your credit card infromation directly through the PayPal website. 

I invoice the full amount with only the deposit due at the time of booking. You may pay out the remainder of the balance before the design process begins. 

If you have any questions or concerns that is not addressed above, please email me at

“Alyssa has designed two websites for me and already has a contract for a third. She’s that amazing. She has an amazing ability to make her designs showcase your work in such a beautiful way. I won’t go to anyone else..”
