If you’re an aspiring writer like me, you’ve probably heard of Scrivener. If not, it’s the software tool used by lots of successful indie authors to both write their books, and to format them for e-publishing. If you listen to the Self Publishing Podcast, The Creative Penn Podcast, or the Rocking Self Publishing Podcast, all those guys (and girls) swear by Scrivener.
The software is cheap to begin with ($45), but once a year they put it on sale for 50% off. If you’re interested,
head over to AppSumo and search for Scrivener, or follow this link (for the Mac version). The PC version is on sale too. The deal it good through next Wednesday, 3/2/16.
Scrivener is something I knew I’d need eventually, so I bought it yesterday, but haven’t installed it yet. I’ll be sure to follow- up here and let you know if it lives up to all the hype.
If you’re not ready to shell out $25 just yet, they apparently have a pretty cool free-trial program. It gives you full functionality for 30 days, and it only counts the days you actually use it.
If you check it out, let me know how it works out for you.
