A Fellowship of Christian Writers:
Discipling each other
......My heart overflows with a good theme; I address my verses to the King; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. Psalm 45:1 NAS
Every writer needs a website and we all want them to be amazing.
But how? Thomas Umstattd, of Austin, TX, will be presenting the ‘7 Secrets to
Amazing Author Websites,’ via live webinar, onSaturday, April 9, 2016 at the ACFW DFW Ready Writers monthly
Thomas built his first website at the age of 13 and taught his
first web design class at only 16 years old. Thomas went to the University of
Mary-Hardin Baylor where he graduated cum laude with a degree in Business
Management. He founded Umstattd Media, his first web design and media company,
in 2007 while still in college.
In 2009 he started AuthorTechTips.com, a website to help authors
use the web to promote their books. The site was twice featured in Writers
Digest as one of the 101 most helpful websites for authors. AuthorTechTips.com
is now AuthorMedia.com, a resource for authors timid about technology.
As an award-winning speaker, Thomas teaches audiences all over
the world. His friendly speaking style blends multimedia and audience
participation. He offers audiences a unique perspective that help them use the
web in a whole new way.
Thomas currently serves as the CEO of Castle Media Group LLC. He
