WordPress Author Website
This author was releasing his first novel and needed a website to promote it. Building author websites with WordPress is a good solution because it is easily to build in functionality needed.
My client needed functionality built in:
- Allow users to download pdf
- Allow user to listen to embedded audio samples
- Allow users to buy digital versions of the book
- Include social media sharing
- Leave book reviews
- A contact the author form
We used a WordPress theme when building this site, but I did not use a “author website template” for WordPress. I evaluate a theme to use based on how well it is coded and feedback from other buyers. I can customize just about any WordPress theme to meet the needs of a project.
While working on it, I had the opportunity to read the sample and I was hooked! I ended up buying a copy and did not put it down until I was done with it. : ) You can read a sample of this suspense novel here.
