Each day, we scout for website designs for new inspirations and design learnings. Whilst our search today, we stumbled upon some unique author websites that were amazingly designed and developed by various web design agencies.

 

Gone are the days when authors solely relied on book readings, book signings or a few promotional events at the local bookstores and publication houses to advertise their books.

 

With the era being ruled by all things digital, we must rethink the ways in which an author can reach out to the huge world for announcing their book launch or a reading and signing event.

 

What’s the answer here? Simple, the quickest way is by building an unique author website.

 

Not like it has not been done before, author websites have there been singled the early days of the internet but most of them look like a drab. It hardly serves the purpose of selling books or building a brand value for the author.

 

The author website designs were picked, for it featured an example of effective and personal branding and marketing.

 

Take a look at what we have been inspired by, to give every new author a creative boost to create a big impression in the digital design world.
