Welcome David. In addition to the amazing success among its users, Scrivener deserves also economic success. Best wishes.

Welcome, David! And congrats on your staff enhancement, Keith!

I'm excited about the impending release of the new version of Scrivener. Is there a mailing list for people who want to know when the new version is available? (and who are too lazy to check the forums regularly)

Hi Debbie,
There's no newsletter at the moment, but I have been looking into it. When users buy Scrivener there is a checkbox to receive announcements and eSellerate make it very easy for me to get the e-mail addresses of those who checked that, and I've just discovered that Dreamhost make it very easy to set up a mailing list. So hopefully I'll get one together before finishing 1.5. If you left the "send me update information" checkbox ticked when you purchased then you won't have to do anything, otherwise look out as I'll post information about subscribing to the list when I get it set up in a few weeks.
Thanks and all the best,
Keith

KB, I hope you pay him in ale and peanuts. Take advantage of that 'childhood friend' thing.

Cheers!

All this talk about marketing etc...nice...but...

...what if the general riffraff of wannabe writers gets hold of this application?

They'll all be writing like GODS soon.

Where will that leave us?

What will now be OUR cutting edge?

Its a sad time.

*sigh*

You* can alway say that "I supported scriv before it was popular, when it was just one man[size=75]sorry dave[/size] with a dream".

Or you can just sit down and cry. That works for me.

* Some of us can't make this claim, those like Mr. -K and I

Jaysen: We should print up t-shirts "I supported Scrivener before it got popular."
And then wipe our tears with them...
So, some salt-water absorbant textile it must be.

Excellent news - as someone else said, when you have so much work that you have to take on an employee, this is no bad thing :)

David, one suggestion: currently your forum avatar is exactly the same as Keith's, and if you do plan on posting here from time to time that could be very confusing for those of us who see the Scriv logo and automatically assume the post is from KB. Perhaps a colour tint or something would suffice to differentiate your posts from his.

Hi Antony,
The creation of my avatar was directed by "Magistar Blount" (as he likes me to address him during day-to-day business) to give some uniformity to a Literature & Latte posting - I will have a word with Keith regarding a slight change for the purpose of differentiation.

Jaysen and Chefpogo,
Although there is fairly well hidden merchandise already available for Scrivener, I will be making this more noticeable in the coming weeks, and may be incorporating one-liners. Your suggestion has been duly noted and could be making print along with others...

Best regards,
David
