AuthorsBookshop.com is a complete e-commerce site with built-in social networking features that allow authors and publishers to work with each other while promoting their books. It is powered by a complex MySQL database backend using PHP scripting to manage communication between the database and the dynamically generated pages. This is an ongoing project, as we are always building, improving and upgrading the site.
When Baltimore's own burlesque superhero, Trixie Little needed a website, she knew who to call. We worked closely with Trixie to make sure her site mirrored the unique look, feel, and spirit of her performances. She wanted to be able to update her images and calender, so naturally, TinBoat Webworks was the perfect fit.
Baltimore Urban Gardening with Students needed a website that would allow them to highlight their staff and students, while keeping the community abreast of their upcoming activities. They wanted to be able to update images of their many activities quickly and easily, and manage their calendar on a day-to-day basis. They also had some wonderful videos that they wanted to include, so we embedded them right into the site. They are able to add more videos via a custom-made form, eliminating the need to deal with html.
Local Baltimore singer/songwriter sahffi was looking for something simple, yet classic. This is actually a pretty typical site for the TinBoat Package, and shows many of the elements that you can expect from us. We did a little extra work for her cd sales page, setting up clickable links by her song titles that play samples of her music.
The Random Book Machine is a unique site built for independent publishers and self-published authors. We created a rating algorythm that allows visitors to rate book covers on a scale of 1 to 5. There is also a user area that allows publishers to log in and see how their book's covers are being rated. There was a lot of programming involved in this site, and it was a really fun project. Try it out - stop by and rate some of the book covers. Watch out though... we hear it can be a little bit addictive!
