My brand new website is live! And the result? Criminally good.
Early this year, my debut novel, Playing With Death, was published in the UK. It was an incredibly proud moment nearly four years in the making, and I couldn’t wait to share it with the public. In order for my novel – co-written with my former lecturer, Simon Scarrow – to reach as wide an audience as possible, I decided to invest in a brand new website to promote my work.
I contacted Visualise, a creative studio based in Norwich, to design my website. They had come highly recommended by a mutual friend for producing high quality, bespoke designs. With an emphasis on creating wholly unique and creative websites, they didn’t let me down!
Visualise have created a slick, stylish website that truly captures the theme of my novel.
The homepage is particular impressive. The desk of FBI Special Agent Rose Blake (the novel’s protagonist) fills the screen, complete with gun, bullets, computer, FBI lanyard and (of course!) a copy of my novel, Playing With Death. The computer monitor flashes up quotes from critics in between crackling static and pixels. It’s really atmospheric and sets the scene for the novel perfectly!
Visualise didn’t stop the design there, but went one step further, creating an amazing parralax design for the homepage. A chair is placed in front of the computer monitor, so when you scroll up and down the page it looks like the design is 3D!
There are loads more awesome features to explore, too. Be sure to check out the Playing With Death Quiz where you can test both your skills as an FBI Special Agent AND your knowledge of the book. Also, you can find more about me – the author, including my upcoming novels and any events I am attending, such as London Comic Con this Saturday 28th October.
Check out my interview to find out the process of co-writing with Simon Scarrow and my biggest inspirations behind the novel. You can also find links to Amazon to purchase my book, as well as the option to sign up to my newsletter and receive insider updates regarding the series.
I want to thank Visualise for creating such a unique, slick and stylish design.
Be sure to check out all the pages on the website (once you’ve finished reading this, of course!) Why not let me know what you think? Contact me on Twitter (@leefranc1s) with your thoughts. And be sure to check out Playing With Death – now available on Amazon!
