Vellum Store Links

A Store link points the reader to a book for sale from the same vendor as the book in her hands. It can include the writer’s Associate code if any, so that you can get a small commission for anything the reader buys after clicking the Store link. I’ve laid out how to do it at the link: Vellum Store Links

Scrivener and Vellum for eBooks

Scrivener and Vellum for eBooks

I've changed my publishing workflow. I'll continue Compiling Scrivener ⇒ Createspace-ready PDF directly, but for eBooks the flow will be Scrivener ⇒ DOCX ⇒ Vellum — with no need to open Word in either case! Vellum creates cleaner, more professional-looking eBooks than Scrivener alone for the platforms and devices shown below. It also provides previews (like the one shown), Store links individualized by platform, and images sized for each device. I also got FANTASTIC Tech Support in my first ten days of learning the program, often two or three responses in a single day. I've never had support to compare with it from ANY software vendor before. Click on Vellum under Categories on the right for more Vellum posts soon to come.

New eBook format!

New eBook format!

I just published an update to "The Fire Within". There are small improvements to the text throughout, and I've switched to a more professional look for the eBook. I picked up a new App called Vellum that's super easy to use. I'll continue to write in Scrivener, and I'll Compile directly from Scrivener to a PDF for Createspace, but for print I'll Compile to Word, import to Vellum, tidy up a few things, and export to many platforms at once. Vellum - highly recommended! Visit me on Facebook
