Well, I guess I am now a published author (self-published, anyhow). And I've actually sold a book... just one so far, but small steps, don't you know :-)

I have to thank the Scrivener folks so much for a great product. Would I have made it without? Probably, but when? Great tool, solid, and important for me, cross platform (including Linux).

Anyway, if you care for SciFi, please check out Open Gate.

Rachael and James have found an opening to another world. It’s the chance for the human race to get off our planet and have breathing room. A place for the explorers at heart to blaze new trails.

But the government is breaking down, there is rioting in the streets and the authorities are in pursuit.

And what about the original owners of these new-found cities? Where are they, and are they wanting visitors?

Y' can make that two now! :wink: 100% increase in sales, in no time at all! Not bad going, Bruce.

I'll be test driving my new Super Dooper-Go Anywhere-Do Anything-Kindle Fire HD 7in (Previous Generation), Blah Blah Blah!

Good luck with the book.

As a professional, you, are your one and only asset. Without integrity you are worthless, but with it, you are priceless.

Hey, and now I'm an International author too!!!

At this growth rate, in a month or so, I can retire (exponential growth works that way :-)).

Seriously, thanks Vic!

And now I've sold a couple (via CreateSpace) of paperbacks.

I will comment that I was able to compile these successfully with the Mac version of Scrivener. It did a great job with the left/right gutters, headers, all that.

The Windows/Linux version doesn't seem to have all of this yet (or at least the pre-set templates that help ed me figure it out weren't there). If they are, and somebody could point me that way, would appreciate it :-)
