    Hi Everyone

    I have been off the scene for a while, just dealing with the shit life throws at you getting back up brushing myself off and saying bring it on.

    I Hope you are all well in the Kindle section, I am looking for some book writing software for windows I have tried all the links for Scrivener.

    If anyone could help me out that would be great almost finished book that has taken me 26 years write Universe telling me to has to be finished, but it is word format I need it to look like a book.

    If not Scrivener any suggestions preferably cheap, when I say cheap I mean free just no spare funds.

    Thanks in advance

    Wasn't there a program called Marshall Plan? I may be geared toward writing novels. Thought it was shared here at one time or another some time ago.

    You can write a book in Word, you don't need any other software. Scrivener is super cheap though, if you want something that is qualitatively better for novel writing (due mainly to its organisational capabilities) and there is a free trial. But if you're too broke or too cheap to spring for it, Word will do.

    You can use Calibre - a little complicated, but good and free.

    Then f.e. the free ones:
    Ywriter - I remember using this one, seemed quite nice: http://www.spacejock.com/yWriter5_Download.html
    Sigil - http://sigil.en.softonic.com/
    Storyteller (https://github.com/subelsky/storyteller)
    Litlift: http://www.litlift.com/

    TheSage is a very powerful dictionary and thesaurus and has a stack of useful features

    - Jutoh is free with limitations, but works on all platforms, also helps to create mp3s from your books:

    Marshall was quite expensive if I remember correctly, plus it is not good for non-fiction.

    Scrivener is far the best FMHO
    And there are coupons around

    Hope this helps

    I can share scrivener for windows here. But the only problem is the keygen gives many false positives. I've used the same keygen myself and shared the same keygen here in the past. These are false positives. If you want I can share it here.

    The software I provide is 1.7 but you can update it with the latest version (1.9) If you want you can try with the latest trial version with this keygen. I've not tried that way myself, but it's supposed to work as it updates to the latest version after installation.

    The reason I'm asking here is, the last thing I want is to get banned for sharing infected software.;) So, if somebody wants I can again upload and share it here. You have to take some calculated risk.
