Our favourite fiction-writing software StoryCraft Pro has now been updated to version 5. Full details here :
Unfortunately it doesn’t say what the new features are, other than now supporting XP and Vista (and the old version works fine on XP anyway)
We have been advised that you should not try to download or purchase the software from the StoryCraftPro.com website at the present time as it is not functioning correctly. The above website works fine though.
Unfortunately we are not aware of any current UK suppliers of this software, but you can buy it from the US-based website above – and the exchange rate is very good at the moment!
If you have an earlier version you should be able to upgrade to the new version for only $10.
If you want to spend more money there are enhanced versions available that include screenwriting/formatting software and a writers software companion – see the website for details.
EDITED 11 FEB 2008: I HAVE NOW HAD A CHANCE TO TRY VERSION 5 FOR MYSELF AND IT IS TERRIBLE. DO NOT BUY IT. IF YOU CAN GET V4.3 STICK WITH THAT, OTHERWISE TRY STORYWEAVER (www.storymind.com)
