Scrivener Simplified is a course for self-published authors, which will show you how to get the most out of the powerful writing tool that is Scrivener.

Scrivener is the one software program that I use every single day, in all aspects of my writing, and I have no doubt whatsoever that it has played a huge role in me becoming a more productive writer.

Since using Scrivener properly, I have written regularly, I have written quickly and I have written with purpose. Now it is time that you do the same.

But a word of warning. This is not your run-of-the-mill basic course, where you will be spoon-fed at every turn on how to use each and every feature of Scrivener. There are some excellent beginner courses out there and indeed Scrivener’s own tutorials may suffice to get you up and running and familiar with the basics of the software.

Learn how to use the industry-leading book writing software correctly

Instead, this course is an over-the-shoulder look at how Scrivener has become an integral part of MY OWN writing process. Within the course, I will show you how you can use Scrivener:

  • In the RESEARCHING of your book
  • In the OUTLINING of your book
  • In the WRITING of your book
  • In the REWRITING and EDITING of your book
  • In the PROMOTING of your book (through the setting up of your book’s Front and Back Matter)
  • In the COMPILING of your book into different eBook formats

Don't make the same mistake I made

I am happy to say that I was an early adopter of Scrivener. Unfortunately, despite making a financial investment in buying the software, I did not then follow this up with making a time investment to learn how to use it properly.

For far too long I merely used Scrivener like a fancy word processor, which was such a waste. Please don't make the same mistake I made. Enrol in this course today.

By the end of the course, you will become a more productive writer by unlocking the power of the incredible writing software that is Scrivener.

Who is the target audience?
  • Self-published authors looking to unleash the power of Scrivener
  • Self-published authors looking to increase the number of books they write each year
  • Self-published authors looking to setup calls to action within the front and back matter of their books
  • Self-published authors looking to easily format their eBooks

Author, Internet Marketer & Udemy Instructor

My name is David James Ault and I am a British ex-pat living in Slovakia, in the heart of Europe, with my wonderful Slovak wife, our three children and our English Bullterrier, Shaggy.

Having graduated with a BSc (Hons) Degree in European Business, the first part of my career was spent in marketing, especially in the tourism industry, and during that time I completed my Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing, at the CIM.

In 2001, I moved from the UK to Slovakia, where I set up a tourism portal about Slovakia and wrote travel related articles and books. I also began writing my first novel.

At that time I taught English as a Foreign Language, as well as Business English Mentoring, and then in 2005 I started working as a Freelance Translator, before finally setting up my own translation company.

During the last 15 years I have written a number of non-fiction books within a variety of niches and set up a number of successful websites to promote my various interests. More recently, I have also been writing fiction and non-fiction books for teenagers and young adults and, in January 2015, I set myself the goal of becoming a full-time author within the next two years. I am currently creating a series of online courses to impart some of the knowledge I have learned over the years to my students.
