This book is as authoritative as it gets. Kettell not only wrote it in Scrivener: screen captures show her work in progress, and identify powerful ways to use Scrivener to improve productivity. Her book has been tech edited by the Literature & Latte software team member who serves as main liaison for the Scrivener Windows product to ensure that the Windows version is covered as thoroughly as the Mac version.

About the Author

Jennifer Kettell switched from being a long-time Windows user to working on a Mac in 2006 for the primary purpose of being able to use Scrivener for her fiction writing. Since then, she’s written several tutorials, given workshops, and helped many other writers adopt Scrivener as the keystone of their writer’s toolkit. Jenn is the author of My Kindle Fire HD, and has written or contributed to more than two dozen other books. When Jenn isn’t writing about technology, she writes romantic fiction. She’s a member of Romance Writers of America and recently served as president of her local chapter. Jenn has lived all over the United States, but currently resides in upstate New York. She loves to read, debate current events, and do all manner of puzzles, but she spends the better part of every day thinking of ways to torture the fictional characters who live in her head.
