It’s really hard to write query letters. And synopses, for that matter. Can you imagine putting together a website that effectively promotes your novel?
Author and website designer Julia Stoops did just that for her book PARTS PER MILLION. The result is beautiful, profound and captivating.
Partspermillion.net incorporates character biographies, photographs of the story’s location, thoughtful FAQs about Julia’s creative process and more. The site background is a piece of Julia’s original art, and artist Ryan Alexander-Tanner rendered compelling black-and-white illustrations that make the novel’s characters come to life.
Julia is one of the most creative people I know. She’s a writer, an artist and a professional website designer and branding guru. You can learn more about her visual art and writing here. I interviewed her last spring about PARTS PER MILLION, her research process and using multiple point-of-view characters as part of the Seven Questions series.
