More Themes



Choose the preset colors as they appear in the theme or adjust any element to your liking. Each design comes in multiple color schemes to choose from, and you can further customize it using the design editor.

Page Layouts 

There are many options for laying out your website. Your main page might show your latest book in a feature section, and then display the rest of your books in a carousel. You might show off your author bio, a smattering of your books, and a content section to talk about your philosophy and why people will want to pick up the whole series. 

The choices are yours.

Here are some sample layout elements. View Page Layout More Options


Customize as Needed

Do you have a course or service to promote? No problem. Would you feel better using a color that matches your books more than the preset-schemes in the theme? Everything is as configurable as you’d ever need.
