In this episode I discover that Kameron Hurley, author of The Mirror Empire and The Geek Feminist Revolution, prefers MS Word to Scrivener! GASP! How can this be? Just goes to show that there’s no one true tool for writers, and that you’ve gotta use what works best for you.

In addition to talking about the gear she uses to write her novels, Hurley also goes into the tools she uses to deal with social media and blogging, which is a key part of her life as a professional writer.
