Where Are All The Good Writers’ WordPress Themes?

For some time now I’ve been looking for a good wordpress theme. While I’m enjoying my wordpress.com freebie, I want something more professional.

I’ve been to template monster, and most of those templates are pretty generic. Really, I want a theme with this list of components.

– Static social media sidebar.

– Good and clean display of published books and their links/prices.

– Page views list.

-Countdown timer to next release of book.

– Blogging area.

– Nice artistic layout … I’m quite a fan of this one as a rough idea (it’s just not very functional).

I’d also like a changing ad area that promotes other books that I enjoy. I’d also like a nice contact page that’s well spaced and has clean colours.

Maybe I just need to use an alternative format to WordPress to end up happy with a website design.

(Please excuse typos, untidy writing, it’s 2 hours past my bedtime)

    I agree. I feel like most of the themes are geared towards photography or personal blogs. With how many writers I see on WordPress you would think they would cater a bit more to that genre.

      Yeah, especially since writers are the most likely to write, no? 🙂

      Why thankyou 🙂 I think you summed the ‘nature’ of my blogs nicely. I too was a spiderman fan in my youth and collected the comics.
