Author of Red Cell, Cold Shot and The Fall of Moscow Station

When I started drafting my first novel, I learned quickly that word processors are terrible for writing books. I tried every other writing tool I could find. Scrivener was the best and it wasn’t a close race for second place. Many thanks to Keith Blount and his Literature & Latte Team for creating Scrivener, the app that ended four years of pain and set me free to write. Scrivener is powerful to meet my every need, but simple enough that I don’t have to fight it to get things done. A writer who’s trying to draft a novel without using Scrivener is probably a masochist.
