If you can read this, you don't need an e-reader

Because I have a digital-only novella being released in a couple of weeks, I’ve been fielding a lot of questions from readers asking if the book is coming out in paper, many of whom mention with the question that if it’s not, they won’t be able to read the story.  (That story, by the way,… Read more »

Scrivener – awesome tool, fabulous tutorial!

I’ve sung the praises of Scrivener before on this blog, but since it really is my go-to writing tool (and since I currently have copies open and running on both of the computers on my desk — the Macbook Air and the iMac), I thought a little Saturday Scrivener love was in order. I ran… Read more »
