Kevin Hearne, who writes the highly entertaining Iron Druid Chronicles, mentioned that he's trying out Scrivener and is enjoying it. http://kevinhearne.com/lots-o-news

If you like "urban" fantasy (set in modern day Earth, not necessarily in a big city) you will probably like his stories. He tangles with a number of gods, including his own Celtic pantheon, all while his trusty Wolf Hound tries to crack him up with corny jokes that only he can hear. Good fun. I recommend the audio book, narrated by Keith Daniels.
Often wrong, rarely in doubt.

Wow, what a tangled mess of ambiguous antecedents. :oops: "He" the author does not tangle with "his" gods, fyi. The main character of the Iron Druid book series does that. "He" the author also does not have a psychic wolf hound who cracks jokes with him, as far as I know.

Maybe I'm just a skeptic? It's not like I live next door to the dude, so maybe he does have homicidal love gods, a magical link to the Earth, and a mental bond with a wise-cracking dog.

Feel better, V?

No! Not really. However, since Atticus O’Sullivan does appear to have a lot in common with a certain younger Hirsuitum Posterious Weldercusi, circa 'way back in the swirling proverbial... I've ordered a copy of Image as an act of solidarity with the lad.

Hirsuitum :wink:
