During the past few years David Hewson sent us an email every now and then. Usually, they were about support questions: The British author is a long-term observer of the market for writing software, and he also bought and tested the two precedent versions of the current Ulysses. But only the latter was finally able to convince him.
Another email that also came in August was rather surprising: He approached us with the proposal to write a book about Ulysses. Needless to say that we were particularly pleased. David is a renowned author, writing makes for a great part of his daily routine, after all he is making a living of it. It is an honor and a recognition of our work that a professional writer like him counts on Ulysses and even shares his insights and experiences in a book.
David’s mystery novels are read by millions of people all over the world. As a master of his trade, he also passed on his knowledge in several succesful guidebooks to aspiring authors. “Writing a Novel With Ulysses III” is the latest and now available for purchase. It is helpful to get a grasp of Ulysses’ approach to writing and its particular benefits for fiction authors. As suggested by its title, the book offers hands-on advice to get out the most of Ulysses for novel writing. The way Hewson approaches that specific task might even deliver some inspiration to those who consider themselves advanced users of the app.
The time of the release is about right for the book to assist one or the other NaNoWriMo writer reaching the 50.000 words goal. This year, we are sponsoring NaNoWriMo, and if you’re interested you can get a free preview sample of David’s book on our dedicated page.
