Best Theme ever!

"I used a lot of themes over the years, but this one is the best theme ever! It is clean and modern looking. It is fully customisable, so the site looks very personal! I am glad to have purchased it."
Perfect theme for … well … authors

"I switched to Author after seeing a friend (a fellow author) use it. When he put up his new site, I immediately asked him what theme he was using, because it was exactly what I wanted: a simple, straightforward site that said who he was and carried links to his writing. When I got Author myself, I was amazed by how easy it was to set up. It literally took me just 90 minutes to get up and running, in full. It was that easy. I had struggled for months with two other themes and never could get them looking right, but with Author it took just 90 minutes, no kidding. If you think this sounds like a paid review, you simply don’t know how many hours of frustration I put into trying to get a simple outcome (bio and posts) out of other themes. Anyway, needless to say, highly recommended."
Super easy to use and looks great

"This theme looks great, it’s easy for non-tech people like me to use and I’m really happy with the professional way it presents my writing. Highly recommended!"
