The Articulate Executive: BF4 is especially bad on current gen consoles so not really worth it Or you could just pop in the CD and scan it with an efficient program like Kaspersky, Avast or something like that 1. I like downloading old used games, since you can find them for ridiculously low prices I got Soulcalibur II for 6 and Wild Coast: Even if you dont want to play with pets right away, itll be nice for you to have that option if you get bored with controlling just human Sims.

It also has a better browser for finding online games that will give you good ping Geisler pdf epub ebooks. And for people listening who haven't done a boxset I think this is a good enough reason on its own to invest because I make so much more money on boxsets from Kobo and iBooks because you're allowed to do premium pricing and they aren't trained to download for cheap.

So that to me is a real selling point, so I just wanted you to know. Brad: That's useful thanks. Joanna: And it's really awesome, and I think so many people forget that. Are there any other really cool or geeky features that you wanted to mention? Brad: Store links is pretty cool tool. We have a facility so that you can add a link to your book for sale on a variety of stores. So you just add one store link and then when you hit generate Vellum will use the link for site, when it builds a Kindle book it'll use the link to the iBook store when it builds the book for iBooks.

That's really handy because it encapsulates all that information in one store link. If you put all of your books on an also download page, one really fun feature is that if you have that in your previous book, you can just drag the also download element from one Vellum document to the next, and then you're all set for your next book.

So that makes sort of like you were getting out with boxsets, it makes reuse really, really easy and that's a fun feature.

I think yes, store links, images, boxsets, the styles, yeah. I think those are the major kinds of things. Joanna: And just the ease of use. I think also the preview. At the moment even with them KDP seems really buggy, so I will upload a new file into Kindle and then you click the preview button within KDP and it won't work.

Is that a known problem right now? Brad: That is a known problem. There's a bug in their online previewer where it decided not to work. We reported it, they said they were aware of it. They were working on it, they haven't gotten around to it.

But yeah, their online previewers have notoriously been not great. Joanna: Pretty bad. But Vellum has a previewer, right? Brad: Yeah, and so that's really great because, for instance, if you have a cover you can view the cover in Vellum, you can look at it on the iPad, but also a lot of readers are reading on Kindle for instance. You want to make sure the cover reads for instance. You can switch to Kindle and Vellum will do a pretty good job of trying to emulate exactly what the reader will see.

And so we also have heard from authors who we didn't anticipate this use they write their book, and then they turn on the previewer.

They just find it much easier to read and sort of like think about edits when they're looking at it in the Vellum preview as opposed to in for text edit. Joanna: Yeah, because it's in the document and you can preview on like an iPhone versus iPad or a Kindle or whatever, which is cool. And then when you mentioned bugs there. The main reason I switched to Vellum was that there also seems to be a bug on site with the with the Kindle look inside, do you know about that?

Like what happened there? Brad: I do. Well, there's a bunch of bugs with the kindle Look Inside, but so the one thing I think you might be referring to is the Scrivener issue. Joanna: Yes. Brad: It's not really a Scrivener issue. Joanna: That's not a Vellum issue. Brad: Right, so that's not a Vellum issue. The Scrivener issue is just that the way that it constructs eBooks it creates a bunch of different style sheets, for every chapter.

And what the Look Inside does is it takes your entire book and it compresses it down to one file for easy viewing on the site website.

As a result, those stylesheets that Scrivener creates are sort of like all mashed together. And because of that, unexpected formatting happens, it's not really a Scrivener bug, and it's not really an site bug, it's just that these ways that it has to do to create this thing results in unexpected formatting. The thing about Vellum is Vellum uses one consistent style sheet for the whole book, and we do that on purpose.

Because we also believe in book design and that's a tenet of book design is that is that things are consistent across the entire book.

And so we in a way locked out that, but also that's kind of the only way that site is going to do this is it's going to take the whole book and put it up on the website it needs to combine all these things. Vellum books will look great in Look inside. The other thing we do here though is that it can take a few days for a Vellum book Look Inside to update. We're not sure when it decides, I think it just puts it on some queue and it waits.

Joanna: It just happens.

Well, that's why I decided to move to Vellum and then I redid all my books really quite fast and stacked them all up and the Look inside it's all fine now.

And I'm really now happy that you guys are focused on that. Because I loved Scrivener, I'm a huge Scrivener lover, but it's designed for writing software.

It's not designed to be a formatting software and I think the tool should be best suited for purpose and that's why I think Vellum is great. Now, one thing that is a problem is it's for Mac.

Brad: That's not a problem Joanna: That's not a problem for you and me. Brad: Yes. Joanna: But for the listeners, any chance of a PC version?

Brad: Well, not right now. One of the problems for us focusing on PC is that we then stop doing all of the stuff that you asked me about earlier, which is like how you make sure that your future proof and back proof is that we basically have to start over again.

And a lot of stuff that we're leveraging on the Mac and not to get into too nerdy stuff, but we're leveraging a bunch of stuff on the Mac that would make it hard to do on the PC. And so we wouldn't want to leave our Mac users on some version for some amount of time.

And so while we never say never, it's something that's not in our plans because there's still so much we want to focus on for the Mac version.

Joanna: I know and I appreciate that.

Beautiful eBooks

Brad: You said it not me. Joanna: We're now design geeks, right? When I left my day job as in the old business world, one of the things I said was I'm switching to Mac because I never want to do what I used to do in my day job. Brad: We both have Macs, Brad and I.

And we knew that it would be this was where we wanted to start. It made certain things easier we designed for the Mac.

One of the things about the ease of use and everything is that it's designed to be used on the Mac. Joanna: So much. Brad: But what's interesting is that we've also heard from people who've bought Macs just to use Vellum which blows our minds. We're super thrilled and we're really honored that people would do that. When we first started, we didn't expect that would happen. So that's great.

Joanna: And of course, the other question I know people have been asking you is, and you mentioned book design and you're a book design geek. What about like a CreateSpace? Brad: That's on the list.

We've actually been working on that for most of this year, and we're hoping to release in spring summer of Joanna: Fantastic. Brad: So hopefully that's soon enough, we'll see. It's funny because when we started it was obviously all about eBooks, why, you know, eBooks are the wave of the future. Three years ago, I feel like there is way more interest in eBooks we didn't see a lot of authors with print, and now I feel like that's changing for a variety of reasons.

Not that eBooks aren't the wave of the future, but it seems to be a little bit more balanced now, people definitely want both, whereas three years ago it felt not quite there. And we love print books that's why we started and we got into this.

And so we wanted to make the experience of creating a print book be just as easy and fun as creating eBooks with Vellum. Joanna: I'm excited about that. I'm thinking about more and more print products myself. I think the reason why is because print-on-demand has been around a good number of years, but it's becoming much more cost effective. It used to be in print-on-demand it was barely worth doing. It was just for marketing and it was just for that price comparison, but now it looks like the cost of print-on-demand is coming down so much that it might be worth more authors doing it.

I've only used Vellum really for fiction, nonfiction, mostly plain text type books. One of the questions I get a lot is from the children's book authors who do mainly illustrations or text book authors or people who really want to do much more image heavy books. Forgetting the file size argument, more about book design for eBook or print, is that something that you think Vellum is good for or is that coming? Brad: There are some things in there that I think Vellum is good for and there are some things that probably without massive changes, we're not quite suited for.

All of these, we want it to look good on all of those devices.

Children's books or some of these photography books where you want complicated layouts and that's really not what Vellum was designed to do. And something like iBooks author, which is designed a little bit more to do that is something better. Obviously, the downside there is that if you generate in iBooks author, it's going to be hard to get on Kindle. That said, the great thing about Kindle is that you've got so many different kinds of devices, including e-ink Paperwhites and stuff and that's not the best way to view a children's book either.

So it's unclear that if you're doing that you want to be able to sell those on site. Joanna: But you will want to do print though. Brad: Yes, you will want to do print, exactly. As far as nonfiction and those books, that is something where we know that we've got some features that we wnt to do and we don't have that on our schedule because we've been focused on print and what it means to do print.

Everything from the features that print needs to how that pricing is going to work into Vellum. So we've been focused on that and not on some of the other features, but once print gets out there then we're going to take a step back and really take a look at some of those features.

Joanna: I think you're right to focus on print, it really is the big thing that a lot of people want, and you're running a business you have to choose the things that make people want to download it.

Thinking about looking forward in eBook design, there's been a sort of gifts on covers and embedded media and video.At the moment even with them KDP seems really buggy, so I will upload a new file into Kindle and then you click the preview button within KDP and it won't work.

Driven by demons, Jobs could drive those around him to fury and despair.

Joanna: A lot of techie people are as well, but even when you're an introvert you kind of miss having people around and just the casual chat and you kind of have to force yourself into. I also gave a personal update on my projects, including asking for your thoughts about what kind of journal I should be creating.

Brad: Yes, certain things like the ornamental breaks won't appear in that file, so that's okay images though will, but they'll be much lower resolution than… and we do that on purpose.
