More authors now understand the importance of offering their content in a digital format. Many publishers are making a decent living off of publishing their e-books online. Your job as an author is not done as soon as you write your e-book. You should also take time to promote your work aggressively. Building a decent looking website to push your book is a smart idea. Webbie for WordPress is a beautiful theme with a minimal design and everything you need to promote your books.
Why WordPress? This content management system is being used by millions of bloggers and authors already. It is very user-friendly and easy-to-learn. Webbie has a minimalistic design.
