Add in clashing colours and poor typography - basically all the mistakes people made when they first started using DTP - and you have a disastrous website.

That's why, as authors become more successful (or take their vocation more seriously) they employ people like me.
How handy it must be to be an author and a web-designer, eh, Mike?
