Zoraida Cordova is the author of the Vicious Deep series, the more recent New-Adult series, On The Line, and the upcoming Labyrinth Lost. I had the pleasure of working with her months ago on a smaller project, and I was thrilled when she reached out for a full rebranding of her author website.
Our first step was deciding between Blogger and WordPress, for which I heavily suggested WordPress. If an author—or anyone—is looking for a professional website and blog in one, neat package, WordPress is the way to go. It’s even great for beginners, as the expansion options are endless and cost-efficient.
Once we had settled on a platform, we moved on to design. Zoraida is a breeze to work with. One of her statements that really stood out to me was this:
I really love vintage and dark things, but I also love bright and beautiful things.
This and her other initial ideas were so parallel with mine (not to mention cohesive), I just knew we were a perfect fit. I worked on a design, shared it with her, and within a week, the project was complete.
Working with Hafsah on my author site was an author’s dream. After initial response, we set on to brainstorming. I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted, so I described the things I like and the color palette that spoke to me best. Hafsah managed to turn that into a design that is very me, which was more than I could ask for. The entire process was professional, well priced, and had a quick turn around time. I can’t wait to work with her again!
