Go for something interactive. Author websites are meant to be highly interactive and intriguing to the author's readers because that's how reader preferences are established. This is why the creative interactive layout in some of these Joomla Bookstore Templates is particularly useful. But for those looking for a more organized appearance of their collection, there are templates that also sport the 2 column layout.
The books online should also be displayed using a framework that's user-friendly and easy to navigate. That's why these templates have navigation features like back to top buttons, dropdown menu, tooltips, and crossbrowser compatibility. Users will also be able to interact with the website with the help of social options and commenting systems. For your convenience, you can fix the layout with the use of advanced theme options and alternative module layouts.
The template also features lots of forms useful for book rentals and shops such as user registration, contact forms, login forms, search forms, and newsletter subscription. This makes up almost everything your readers will want from you so they can keep track of your latest works, may they be fiction books or textbooks.
