Launch An Author Site  demo

(then, log in as a Visitor)


 

What's the 411 on The demos?

  • All of our Author Site demos are examples of the Author Podium Package with the Author Logo First Class Upgrade.
  • Our Author Site demos utilize hipster ipsum, a derivative of lorem ipsum. In publishing and graphic design, lorem ipsum is nonsense text used as a placeholder for the actual text.
 

What To Look For?

  • All of our Author Site demos can be configured for any color background. Most will also accommodate an image or texture as the background.
  • Take a look at the specific features listed below each demo before viewing it. That will help you determine what makes each one special.
  • All of these Author Site demos are suitable for both published and unpublished authors, and can be configured into any of our Author Site Packages.
 

shift

The Squarespace Shift Template is great for authors who luv the camera or those who wish to display a series of books with eye-catching imagery with a subtle sense of movement (called parallax scrolling). This template also automatically makes big image headers for each Blog Post and Event Post (based on the post’s thumbnail image).

HORIZON

The Squarespace Horizon Template is great for authors who are camera-shy. It is a one-page site, but can be configured to have distinct pages each with its own header (which then makes it a great choice for those who do luv the camera).

aviator

The Squarespace Aviator Template is great  for authors who are camera-shy. It uses just one big background image or background color site-wide. Navigation is on the left, Social Media links on the right, and your pages float in the middle.

 

adversary

The Squarespace Adversary Template is great for authors who luv the camera or those who wish to display eye-catching imagery with a subtle sense of movement (called parallax scrolling). This template also creates big image headers for each Blog Post and Event Post automatically (based on the post’s thumbnail image).

pacific

The Squarespace Pacific Template is great for authors who luv the camera or those who wish to display eye-catching imagery for the header of each page. This template can even be configured as a one-page site (as it is in this demo), which cuts down on number of headers required.)

bedford

The Squarespace Bedford Template is great for authors who luv the camera and for those who wish to display eye-catching imagery.  This template automatically makes big image headers for each Blog Post and Event Post based on the post’s thumbnail image. It also includes a Call-To-Action button in the Nav (to bring extra attention to your Books Page.)

 

montauk

The Squarespace Montauk Template is great for authors who luv the camera or those who wish to display eye-catching imagery. It uses big, wide images for the header of each page.

marquee

The Squarespace Marquee Template utilizes an effect known as "parallax scrolling" (different elements on the page scroll at different speeds) on the header images to present your content in a dynamic and interactive way. This template also automatically makes big image headers for each Blog Post and Event Post (based on the post’s thumbnail image).

ADirondack

The Squarespace Adirondack Template is great for authors who luv the camera or those who wish to display eye-catching imagery. It uses big images for the header of each page. When the user scrolls up the header image fades away, leaving just the Author Name and navigation at the top. This template also automatically makes big image headers for each Blog Post and Event Post (based on the post’s thumbnail image).

 

native

The Squarespace Native Template is great for authors who are camera-shy. It uses just one big background image or background color site-wide. Native is visually modern, allowing for a clean, elegant look. 

hayden

The Squarespace Hayden Template is great for authors who luv the camera or those who wish to display eye-catching imagery. This template automatically makes big image headers for each Blog Post and Event Post based on the post’s thumbnail image. It also includes a Call-To-Action button in the Nav (to bring extra attention to your Books Page.)

om

The Squarespace Om Template is great for authors who are camera-shy. It uses just one big background image or background color site-wide. This template excels in clean, modern design.
