Waywiser to launch wholly new website

 

In the middle of August 2016, Waywiser will be launching a wholly new website. It will be fresher, cleaner and easier to use. We have listened to visitor feedback on the current site, and, working with Propraxis Web Management, have produced something that will make finding the information you want a speedier and more enjoyable experience. The new site will be responsive, meaning that it will look good on all devices.

What will have changed?

We've had a complete redesign. The images will be sharper, the text will be easier to read, ordering our books will be much simpler, and navigation will be much more streamlined.

One wholly new feature will be the addition of an audio-visual (A/V) library, which will feature recordings of our authors reading from their books. We expect to add many more items to the library in the coming months.

Feedback

We would love to hear your feedback about the new site.

Of course AWP 2016 would not be complete without a Donald Trump piñata, which Waywiser was pleased to provide, and which purchasers of our books seemed to enjoy taking a whack at:

 

The entertainment culminated in Cody Walker versus Trump, which ended as it had to:
