About Us

Smart Author Sites has been serving the digital needs of authors since 2006. Founded by Karin Bilich, who had previously served as the Director of Web Operations for Publishers Weekly, Smart Author Sites quickly became a much-needed resource for authors seeking to promote themselves and their books at a time when there were very few companies with such expertise.

Over the last decade and a half, Smart Author Sites has served over 500 authors, and has morphed from simply building HTML websites to creating comprehensive digital marketing plans – including mobile-friendly WordPress sites, social media pages, and paid digital advertising — for both published and soon-to-be-published authors. Smart Author Sites now partners with 515 Media for all its design and technology needs, while still maintaining the personalized service it has provided since its inception.

What makes Smart Author Sites unique is the time investment that goes into meeting each author’s individual needs. We still take the time to talk to each author directly and customize the process of building an online presence based on genre, desired time investment, desired measures of success, and more.

Let us work with you to help build YOUR version of digital author success.
