February has been full-on for 2QT Author Erica Thicket. She has just released her first publication, Fergs and the Eco Tykes, as well as a successful book launch at Edinburgh Zoo. And to top it all off, Erica has also launched her new author website with the help of Kate Cousins working in partnership with 2QT on book marketing for authors.
To promote her upcoming events Erica was looking for an online platform where she could easily keep her readership up to date with all things Eco Tyke; promoting events including her latest book launch and documenting her exciting school visits where she teaches a young audience about sustainability and recycling. The website is already full of exciting news and talks of the inspiration behind the stories.
Working with 2QT to help authors with their marketing needs post-publication, Kate designed the new website using WordPress, an extremely user-friendly and open source platform meaning users are free to modify their own content and design. It’s become extremely popular for keen writers and bloggers new to the world of website; users can create and manage blog posts with ease and confidence, allowing them to get creative with uploading pictures so that their readers can be engaged with rich content.
Erica now has an online platform that she can use of her own accord to continue her writing and journal her adventures. Visitors to the website can even grab a free Eco Tyke bookmark when they subscribe to receive Eco Tyke updates!
