I've been using Scrivener since the very first days, and finally:

You may have heard the exciting news, but if not, here it is: After a 12 year journey, my book The Consecration of Jacob Jordaens is published, both as paperback and for Kindle (also as ebook in iTunes, etc.). Here is the Amazon link:

A press release just today on Digital Journal states : "Michael Brown's new novel bravely and humanely explores the dark world of an underground sex trafficking ring with paranormal connections."

Using Scrivener made this possible.

And thanks for sharing your good news. Makes me think I still have a chance, too.

Congrats indeed!

I absolutely love Scrivener!

It made writing/publishing my first book a breeze.
I wrote my spy novel called SImon Eady ( ... B008UT1LRO ), and I'm now on the way with the sequel.

After a few video tutorial sessions, I was on my way... and before I knew it, I was published.

Thank you.

PS. Along the way I wrote to Literature and Latte for some assistance, and I was amazed how quickly they wrote back. Great support.
