Getting the Same Results Without Scrivener

I’m tired of all these promo blog posts and articles and ads and on and on about how awesome and fantabulous Scrivener is. It’s a marketing ploy. I have nothing against L&L, their makers.

Click the links to download!

And ah, here’s the gigantic epub file of everything put together. Download if you dare.
