Scrivener webinar at Mark Dawson’s Self Publishing University

I’m giving a Scrivener webinar for Mark Dawson’s Self Publishing Formula University (SPFU) on Wednesday, May 15th. You can join the fun for just $1 US by signing up to Mark’s Patreon account at the $1/week level (no long-term commitment required).

Patreon supporters get membership of SPFU (with five quality webinars so far in the library), exclusive contents, a shoutout on the podcast, and depending on level, an SPF pin, all PDFs and handouts mentioned in podcasts, and chances to win access to premium courses.

If you’re not familiar with Mark Dawson, he’s the man behind the popular Self Publishing Show podcast, and the author of bestselling thrillers, who generously gives of his time and knowledge to help indie authors succeed. In fact, his series on Amazon ads a couple of years ago gave me the confidence I needed to wade into advertising my books.

I hope you’ll join me for the webinar! Also, look for me on an upcoming episode of the Self Publishing Show.

If you have any questions, just leave a comment below.

See you there!

Scrivener for memoir writing: a podcast interview with The Life Story Coach

The Life Story Coach, Amy Woods Butler, helps people write life stories (theirs or other's), and she uses Scrivener. To give her listeners a better idea of how Scrivener can help them, she asked me to join her for an interview on her podcast.

We discuss the concept of Scrivener as a “project manager for a book,” lots of ways to use the software for any kind of writing, and how weird it is that I'm a left-brained non-plotter. If podcasts are your thing, or you just want to know what I sound like (jk), check it out!

Here's a teaser…

How to use Scrivener for NaNoWriMo (and beyond!)

When you need a break from frantically writing toward your 1667 words for the day (or whatever your goal is if you’re not participating in National Novel Writing Month this year), check out my post over at Jami Gold’s blog: How to Use Scrivener for NaNoWriMo.

I highlight my favorite Scrivener features for helping you stay in the flow, and cover how to compile your work when you’re done. Check it out!

And, if you’re in the US and you can, please vote. Ignore the exit polls and early returns. You wouldn’t quit a basketball game at halftime, no matter the score. Your vote matters, for you and for those who don’t have the privilege. Be heard!

Then, back to writing. 🙂 Enjoy your day!
