Based upon Elizabeth Lyon’s Nonfiction Book Proposals Anybody can Write (available on Amazon.com), those wishing traditional publishing of their nonfiction work will find this essential. You need only fill in the data to produce a professional proposal.

Many literary agents and publishers require an author to submit an synopsis for their novel. Synopsis Wizard will help you format and create your synopsis.

This wizard will take a Wizard formatted novel or nonfiction contiguous multi-chapter manuscript and burst it into individual chapter-files. This allows working on bite size pieces for editing.

Joiner Wizard will join multiple chapter-files into a contiguous single manuscript file. It will renumber chapter numbers (if necessary), renumber the pages, and reapply the header (slug line).

Plot Wizard is a multidimensional tool. Using one of the tool-buttons, the author enters Scene points, Plot points, and To Do points as needed. These points entered into the text of the manuscript; however they are entered as special text that can be hidden. They are also set in a different color (blue, red, etc). Using Word’s Outline or Document Navigation, the user can navigate directly to different scenes. For example, viewing the outline or document navigation, clicking on the point “Harry met Sally” would take you to that scene in chapter 5. See the Plot Wizard demo.

Character Wizard feature of this writer’s software provides a database to record the attributes of your players, their dialog tags, and psychology. Essential to creating a good story is good characters. The writer must understand his characters. Character Wizard helps you do that.

Included in this writing software is Add-A-Chapter Wizard. This wizard will remember the last chapter number assigned and increase it by one. The wizard will create a new chapter-file skeleton with the attributes of chapter one, i.e., the font, chapter opening style, slugline, etc.

After a manuscript is ready for publication, the author can add front matter such as Dedication, Introduction, Acknowledgements, List of Tables, List of Figures, etc.

Query Letter Wizard is available in two formats. One is suited for a single query letter, the other is used for a mail merge in conjunction with Agent Wizard

Agent Wizard is a powerful application that interviews the author to ensure he is not guilty of premature submission. Once past that, the agent wizard will determine potential literary agents in the included database suited to the genre of the manuscript, location, and other criteria. From these selected agents, the author can select and place agents in three categories. The author can now print mailing labels, and collated submissions packages with attachments matched to the agents requirements with appropriate query letter salutation. All the author need do is insert the packages into envelopes, attach labels and postage, and mail. In the case where the agent accepts email, the wizard will send the package via email.

POD Wizard will convert a Wizard manuscript into one of many selected size book formats ready to upload to Amazon’s Create Space or LULU. Both services provide Print on Demand books where anyone can purchase a single printed book, or as many as you want. The only cost is the cost to purchase the book that is priced similar to a book in a book store like Barnes & Noble.

eBook Wizard will convert a Wizard manuscript into eBook format. For Amazon Kindle, eBook Wizard will convert it to .mobi format ready to upload to KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing). This will make your book available to purchase from the largest bookstore in the world. You will typically get 70% of the sales price. eBook Wizard will also convert your Wizard manuscript into .epub format. This format can be uploaded to Barnes & Noble Nook Press, and to SmashWords who can distribute your book to Apple, Sony, and others.
