claire carlile, seo wales, looking stylish in rubber and pants

For years now Claire, or Claire Carlile SEO Wales as I am beginning to call her, has advised me on seo and marketing, all things website and blog. Some of her advice I follow and I would probably be wise to follow more of it. She is constantly telling me to sort out my website, so please, don't think that my site looks like this because of Claire.

At a time when selling books is difficult and also the art market is uncertain my sales are rising and this is in no small part down to Claire, or as I like to call her, my Internet Guru. (She does love it when I call her that!)

She is great at what she does and a good friend.

 

two cheetahs and two goldfinches, a small charm, by Jackie Morris, watercolour and gold leaf. I now have a gallery of images for sale, both originals and prints, called The House of Golden Dreams. I update regularly with new images.
image cropped from The Snow Leopard by Jackie Morris Signed copies of most of my books are available from Solva Woollen Mill. They have a website and ship internationaly. Well worth a visit, this is a small, privately owned mill with working looms set in a beautiful valley near Solva, Pembrokeshire. The tea room is due to re-open in the spring. The link takes you through to the order page for my books but their site is well worth a browse.
