Simon Toyne is the bestselling author of the Santus trilogy - a series of high concept, race-against-time conspiracy thrillers, which began with 2011's Sanctus - the biggest selling debut novel of the year. Ahead of the launch of his new series Solomon Creed in autumn 2015, Simon asked MoonAge to look at his digital profile and determine how best to position his various online properties in order to provide the most logical and user friendly experience for existing fans and new readers alike. The key outcome of this exercise was a brand new website, built in collaboration with Youniverse and using a fully responsive design to optimise the viewing experience across different browsers and devices. Geo-targeting was used to serve the relevant artwork, titles and retail links to the consumer based on their location - negating the need for multiple territory sites, which had previously been the case. The site also consolidated a wealth of archive content from across the web, bringing together great quality interviews, reviews and articles in one simple to navigate location.
"MoonAge took my callow youth of an author website and turned it into a man. Their in-depth knowledge of publishing and the book market made me feel like I was in very safe hands and that I could get back to the real business of just writing rather than constantly fretting about my online incarnation." - Simon Toyne
