Our aim is to collect and showcase some of the best author websites around to inspire your next website design idea. We’ve also added some reasons why we love each design.

We present a curated collection of distinct author and writer sites. Whether you’re an aspiring writer dreaming of your ideal brand design; an author looking to make their own website; or a designer researching the author website landscape; we’re here for a bit of cheery inspiration.

What we look for in the best author websites

Not all of the site included here have met the following criteria, but this is what we look for:

  • Does the website have a distinct design that reflects the personality of the author and their work?
  • Load quickly, especially on tablets and mobiles?
  • Is the website navigation clear and easy-to-use?
  • Does the site have relevant and engaging content?
  • Does the website facilitate a connection with author?
  • Is the website mobile-friendly?

Tags: We’ve also added tags to each design, so you can find sites with specific elements. Looking for other mobile-friendly sites? Perhaps websites with horizontal main menus? Or try just sites that are predominantly blue?

Enjoy!
