Website design and creation costs are entirely based on how complex a site will need to be. If it’s one page, that’ll cost hardly anything. An author’s site with multiple series and 100+ books? That’ll take a while and the cost will depend on how long. Once I have an idea of how much work is involved, I’ll be able to give you a better idea of the cost in an estimate.
