“Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind.” ―William Shakespeare
That bit of wisdom from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” came to mind when some of our favorite developers approached us about participating in their SummerFest 2015 sale. We spend our days researching, writing, and editing, so a sale on artisanal writing tools from small teams that are as passionate about their apps as we are about our text seemed like an ideal match. This isn’t a gimmicky bundle with apps you’ll never use — just a simple 25-percent-off sale on six great programs and our Take Control books, through 30 June 2015.
The curated collection includes a number of apps we rely on daily or have covered over the years. DEVONthink Pro is superb for storing notes and research materials. Eastgate Systems’ Tinderbox helps you organize, plan, and map your thoughts. You can plot out the chronology of any story with Aeon Timeline. Literature & Latte’s highly regarded writing studio Scrivener helps you turn your research and ideas into a manuscript. If references are essential in your writing, Bookends helps you collect, annotate, curate, and cite published information. For working with editors and polishing your final draft (plus any imaginable text manipulation need), Nisus Writer Pro is unparalleled. And, of course, our Take Control library of books helps you better use these apps — including titles about DEVONthink Pro and Scrivener — and your Mac in general.
The links for the apps above are all for more information; to take advantage of the 25 percent discount, click through from the main SummerFest page or use the SUMMERFEST2015 coupon code when ordering.
If you take your writing seriously, do yourself a favor and invest in the tools and training that let you focus on the best way to convey your ideas to the world.
