As a lifetime military brat and 20-year military spouse, I just can’t seem to stop writing military heroes (and heroines—hello, Caitlyn in Running Blind). So, to celebrate Veterans Day, I’m having a sale on the steamy, adventurous books that started it all.
Forced proximity, best friend’s little sister, second chances, enemies to lovers… These books feature your favorite tropes with smoking hot heroes who’ll do anything to protect the women they love.
If you haven’t read BLIND FURY, BLIND AMBITION, or BLINDSIDED yet, don’t miss your chance to bring these sexy vets home with you at these low, low prices!
One of the most common questions I get about Scrivener is: “Which project template should I pick?” I’ve answered that in the short video below.

Please join me in supporting those affected by the devastating wildfires in Maui. If you donate at least $5 USD to one of the charities below, and send me a copy of the receipt by August 31, 2023 at 11:59pm PDT, I’ll send you a link for an ebook of your choice from those I’ve written.
Scrivener was conceived as drafting software—and that’s still where it truly excels—but along the way it’s become a one-stop shop for writing and publishing a book. That includes the ability to add images to your project.
Whether for scene breaks, chapter headings, illustrative figures within a section, book covers, or just a reference to a character or setting’s appearance, here’s a rundown of how to work with images in Scrivener 3.
Also—spoiler alert—my ultimate goal is to convert you to a user of image placeholder tags, but read on for all of your options.
Getting Images into a Project File
In most cases, it’ll be easier to work with an image if you import it to your project first. There are exceptions, which I’ll mention where appropriate.
You also might want to store an image file in your project even if you never plan to insert it into your manuscript. For example, character or location images. And an ebook cover image must be stored in the project in order to include it when you compile.
The supported file types are JPG/JPEG, PNG, and PDF.
NOTE: Importing an image makes a copy of it, so there is no link between the original and the one in your project. Later I’ll discuss how to use linked images.
I’ve been waiting years to make this happen, and I’m hoping to get the rest of the series in audio at some point. Fingers crossed they do well and I have more good news soon. 🤞🏻
Are you a Kobo fan? (If you’re not, go get the app, it’s great.) I’m honoring my awesome dad on Father’s Day by putting my only “dad book” BLIND JUSTICE on sale at Kobo for $2.99 through the 19th. Get your copy for the weekend!
A sexy bodyguard. A high-maintenance city girl. Sometimes opposites attract…a killer.
Actually, the hero, Jeff, is more than just a bodyguard, he’s a former combat weatherman, part of the Air Force’s special operations. If you’re a sucker for a badass hot guy with brains who’s also a really good dad, pick up BLIND JUSTICE today!
Just in case you missed it elsewhere: The DepositPhotos $39 for 100 photos deal is back at AppSumo! I’ve been buying this one every single time it comes around for at least 7 years.
I have so many image credits it’s ridiculous. But also freeing. I never hesitate to download a photo for whatever I need, whether it’s for a book cover, social media post, newsletter, or my web page.
That $1 graphic on Canva seems like a good idea until you realize you could’ve had 2.56 images for the same price. #nerdlife
I’ve never seen DepositPhotos offer 100 images for less than $50, and they’re usually at least $100. But they periodically give them away extra cheap to AppSumo customers. The credits don’t expire, so if you think you might ever want access to quality high-resolution images for any part of your business, I wouldn’t sleep on this deal.
(If you’ve never heard of DepositPhotos, it’s similar to Shutterstock, and often has the same images.)
