This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Ulysses III is rapidly becoming one of the apps of choice for Mac-based novel writers. Best-selling novelist David Hewson, author of the ever-popular Writing A Novel with Scrivener, offers a professional insight into how to use this unique app for writing fiction.
This ebook covers all the aspects of Ulysses a writer needs to master in order to produce a finished book, from initial planning through to completed ebook, word file or pdf. You will learn how to use Ulysses to structure a book into parts and scenes and ways to manage research and ideas. Hewson also describes how Ulysses stores work uniquely in its own library, enabling you to work on the same draft manuscript across different machines while on the move.
For budding screenwriters there is a section on how to use Ulysses to produce scripts to professional formats that can be edited later in movie apps such as Final Draft. Now updated to cover the latest Yosemite version of Ulysses on the Mac, and the latest companion IOS app for iPads and now iPhone.

Wonderful Overview of a Mind-Blowing App
I’m a huge fan of Ulysses III, and I write both screenplays and manuscripts with it. That being said, I still found some nuggets of wisdom here and learned things about the app I thought I already had a great handle on. This is a well-written, to-the-point illustrated book that gives a lovely overview of what makes Ulysses III such a compelling environment for writers. It’s not a super-long book, but remember, you shouldn’t be buried in this book for months at a time anyway–go out and write! Thank you David for creating this resource; I look forward to the upcoming chapters regarding Ulysses for iPad, etc.
Waste of money
This is a very simple overview of how the author uses the program to write and is certainly not worth the $5 I spent to read it. "Don't change the defaults, use iCloud, and play with a small example before you write your novel." There. All you need to know is in the files that come with the application.
This is a very helpful “get up and moving” introduction to Ulysses. A quick read with helpful tips along the way. Highly recommended. At the end, you can get to writing. However, it did leave me desiring an advanced manual for Ulysses covering the product thoroughly.
