Book Formatting and Layout in Scrivener

Scrivener is becoming one of the most recommended programs for writing books. And there are guides to using it. So you might be curious about how to take your Scrivener file and format it for print books and ebooks; and you may or may not be surprised to learn that, while Scrivener makes it pretty easy to convert your document to ebook format, it’s actually not suited for print formatting at all.

But since some of you may be writing your book in Scrivener, I’ll be adding guides to formatting for print in Scrivener (as much as possible), uploading some templates and styles you can use, as well as guides for exporting to Word for formatting, or converting to ebook.
