[prMac.com] New York, New York - Tens of thousands of iPhone and iPad users have written novels, short stories, and articles on Black Mana Studios' Manuscript application. The simple, proven writing steps that will take you from pitch to publication are now available for your home computer or laptop through the Apple App store. Manuscript for Mac will help you organize your plot lines, keep track of your characters, and give you the tools to get your thoughts flowing straight to paper, without delay.
Manuscript for Mac encourages creativity by working through a logical process of steps: Start with a one sentence elevator pitch that sums up your entire novel, then move on to creating an overall synopsis of your entire novel from start to finish. Create chapter outlines and make use of color-coded index cards and icons that you can use as a storyboard. Keep track of word count and page count, all within the well-organized layout. If you don't know where to start, Manuscript for Mac comes equipped with several sample manuscripts that you can test out and a short video tutorial as an additional helping guide.
When your manuscript is complete, Manuscript for Mac allows you to export your work into a number of formats including Word, PDF, and the popular eBook format ePub. It's easy to self-publish your novel when your manuscript is already formatted for iBooks by Apple and Kindle by Amazon. Should you decide to approach large publishing houses with your novel, Manuscript for Mac ensures that you have everything you need to propose your novel to potential agents.
Black Mana Studios, creators of popular apps such as Manuscript for the iPhone and iPad, Home 3D, and Screenplay for iPhone and iPad, have worked in collaboration with writers to create an easy to use application that anyone, from the novice writer to the seasoned author, can use to create a novel or short story. Says Aki Yifrach, founder and creative director of Black Mana Studios, "Manuscript for Mac takes our popular writing app to an entirely new level. By incorporating tools that allow you to organize your thoughts, characters, and plot lines, it becomes easy to work through your story from start to finish."
For beginners, for authors, for anyone who feels inspired to put their ideas to the page, Manuscript for Mac provides you with an uncluttered, distraction-free workspace that encourages you to focus on writing.
