Our Top 5 Favorite Authorlicious Sites!


It’s been a whole 6 weeks since we officially launched our Authorlicious website theme for authors, and we’ve really enjoyed the process. Thanks for supporting us on our first (non-book) launch! We’ve had some fantastic authors grab a copy, and we’ve watched them transform their sites into something wonderful that we wanted to share with you.

Below is a sample of some of our favorite sites (in no particular order). I think they really show the diversity of the theme – we chose a variety of genres from chick lit to thriller to literary fiction to showcase how you really can customize the site in many ways.

If you have any questions about the theme, check out our FAQs, or shoot me an email (laura at 30daybooks.com). Otherwise, enjoy!

Tanya Savko – Slip


Authorlicious provides the framework for a truly functional and highly customized website for authors – I am thrilled with my new site! There are so many great things about Authorlicious!

Will Overby – The Movie House Mystery


Authorlicious was really simple to set up and improved the look of my website 100%.  My old site looked amateurish and dated.  Now I think it looks professional and slick!

Andrea Stein – Rough Harbor


I found the Authorlicious theme very easy to work with – I replaced an existing theme and it was super smooth – it also looks great on an iPhone as well as the web.  It’s been super easy to set up and I love the “Add books” feature – it makes it easier to build up a library of books – your backlist – and feature that on the site.  And it’s very simple to add in all of your Social Media (including goodreads and Amazon’s author central) to the site so your fans can connect with you in a variety of ways! Great theme and I look forward to doing even more with it as my backlist grows.

Samuel Sattin – League of Somebodies


Being someone who looks at building a website in the same way primitive men looked at the stars, I was astounded by Authorlicious’s suave usability. The tutorials kick tail, all to the backdrop of an experimental jazz soundtrack that makes you feel cooler than you actually are. Amazing!

    Hi. I’m a first-time author working an absolute newbie guide to how the internet is currently used by experts to either start a business from scratch or promote an existing business. I’m so glad I found your site and I can’t wait to start studying and implementing your ‘nuggets of gold’ advice (once I’ve acquired the Authorlicious theme). I’m also urgently seeking advice on how to professionally collate my research to introduce my concept, I call it WebCraft, to the world. Thank you for taking the time to create an excellent resource for newbie authors like myself.
