My novel development process
In this post on using VS code I wrote about how I use a programming editor to write novels. It works fantastic and I can usually write about 20-30% faster than normal.
I also use a scripting tool called PublishQuickly to manage my catalog and generate Amazon upload-ready version. This script helps me manage my backlist and make updates easily, across books, and is a huge time saver and productivity tool.
These two have really added to my speed and convenience, so give it a try!
