The Novel Factory Online is now LIVE!

We are pleased to announce that as well as being available for Windows desktop, the Novel Factory is now available online.

This means that the program is now available to writers on any platform, including Mac users.

This will not affect the windows desktop version – if you prefer to stick with that one, then you can crack on unaffected.

However, if you fancy checking out the new Online version, you can try it free for 30 days. You can go and check it out right away by clicking here.

Read on to find out more about some of the fantastic features that are available:

Dedicated areas for planning, characters and locations

The Novel Factory is purpose-built software for novel writers, so it has dedicated areas for the things that are important to novelists – such as characters and locations. It also has a framework for setting out your planning, including premise, story skeleton (including a range of plot templates) and your short and extended synopses.
