July 4th Flash Sale: Save 50% on Scrivener for Genealogists QuickSheet PDF Digital Download

It’s no secret I’m a big fan of Scrivener–the amazing writing/project management tool by Literature and Latte. If you follow this blog, read some of my articles in genealogy magazines, or have attended one of the workshops I’ve presented at genealogy conferences, or my Scrivener Mini Boot Camp or Scrivener II:  Beyond the Basics Mini Boot Camp presented for HackGenealogy, (click here to purchase the recordings of these boot camps as digital downloads)  then you know I’m a self-proclaimed Scrivener evangelist. 

I use Scrivener for all my family history writing projects, books, and professional nonfiction writing assignments. [I’m also a Scrivener affiliate so if you click on any of the links to the software and purchase it, I earn a small commission].

In 2014 my affinity for Scrivener inspired me to produce the Scrivener for Genealogists QuickSheet (available in print for Mac or Windows) to help genealogists and family historians get up and running with Scrivener (it was the first guide of its kind out there on how to use Scrivener specifically for genealogy/family history writing).  

I have now made these popular guides available for purchase in PDF format via digital download, and starting today through Tuesday July 5th I am offering a special July 4th flash sale 50% discount on the digital versions of the Scrivener for Genealogists QuickSheet.*

Click here to go to the order page to Purchase Now and enter the appropriate coupon code:

Win4 – for Windows QuickSheet

Mac4 – For Mac QuickSheet

The sale will expire on 5 July 2016 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. Hurry to take advantage of this low price and get started on those writing projects today!

*Note: The 50% off discount is good only on the digital download (PDF) versions for Mac or Windows and not the printed laminated versions. If you would like to order a printed/laminated version of the Scrivener QuickSheets click here.
