Have you ever used Scrivener, the word processor for creative writers? If you have, you’ll want to check out my latest book, Take Control of Scrivener 2.

In this ebook, you’ll take a creative voyage with Scrivener 2, a unique and popular content-generation tool. Scrivener supports wordsmiths of all types, and it’s designed especially for long-form writing projects—scripts, novels, academic works, and more.

Using Melville’s Moby-Dick as his exemplar, author Kirk McElhearn walks you through using Scrivener to create and manage a writing project. You’ll learn how to use Scrivener’s Binder, Outliner, and Corkboard to develop characters and settings, collect and organize research materials, and arrange your scenes. Kirk even explains how to keep yourself on track by composing in Scrivener’s Full Screen mode and by setting daily progress targets, all on the way to helping you produce a polished, submission-ready manuscript.

Learn more about the book on the Take Control Books website. Download the book in any of a number of ebook formats – PDF, ePub, Mobi, etc. – and order printed copies if you want. The ebook is available for only $10. You can also buy this in Kindle format from

    As you know, a Windows version of Scrivener has just been released. Is there any chance of you writing a Windows version of your book for those of us with Windows?

    Also, in relation to your book, you mention that it’s possible to order printed copies. How does one do this, and what is the cost?

      For now, I haven’t looked at the Windows version. It’s something we’re going to consider. For printed books, go to the link in the post; you can order them from there.

      Thanks for the prompt reply. If you do write a Windows version could you please add me to any mailing list about it?
