PAGE 1 - New software for authors

With PAGE 1 there is new software for authors and everyone who wants to become one. The tidy interface of the app provides an overview of individual projects, their chapters, the locations, people, storylines and more that appear in the novels. Tools for research are also offered - as well as a calendar that helps to keep the chronology. PAGE 1 is currently available in the basic version for Windows. A plus and all-in version with extended functions are being planned. Further information, the program in comparison with other authoring software and the price can be found below.

TL; DR: You can go directly to the app website here

PAGE 1 is a new authoring software for Windows that is still under development, but already in the available basic version offers useful tools, quick familiarization and advantages over other writing apps for novels.

PAGE 1 - Write books with the Windows app

Unfortunately, I cannot provide you with a test for PAGE 1 as I have not (yet) via CrossOver on the new M1 MacBook got up and running. Based on the available screenshots and videos as well as the information on the website linked above, the following features of the program can be summarized:

  • Lean text editor with the most important options for formatting the font
  • Parallel chapter editing without scrolling or jumping back and forth
  • Central starting point for editing individual projects and content
  • Card system for sorting and linking places, people, objects, research, etc.
  • Cards for everything with suitable attributes (such as size, age, appearance, etc. for people and animals)
  • A calendar for planning the novel chronology or for your own writing routine
  • A collection box for notes, ideas and researched material
  • And a lot more
The dashboard or desk on PAGE 1 provides an overview of the content and space for notes. It resembles an early operating system, only specialized in the project, the novel.

PAGE 1 in comparison with Papyrus, Drama Queen, Scrivener and Co.

I already presented writing programs with organizational aids for authors here in August 2019: Author writing programs for Mac and iPad with / without Duden exam, thesaurus and writing style analysis. Maybe you already know the macOS and iPadOS apps DramaQueen, FocusWriter, PageFour, Papyrus Autor, Patchwork, Ulysses and so on. Compared to these, PAGE 1 offers the unique advantage of being able to edit several chapters at the same time using the Chapter Manager without having to scroll, search and jump in the entire document.

With the tabs or registers in the PAGE 1 authoring software, chapters can easily be edited in parallel. The linked content is displayed on the left. You can also quickly jump to the calendar and other tools. In the announced app versions, there should be options for plotting the story and for storylines.

In addition, previous users praise the clear structure of PAGE 1. The calendar, which can not only be used for your own organization, can be used for the chronology of history. Storylines that run parallel or one after the other should be able to be managed in the coming versions. Then there is also the option of plotting the story of the novel with a storyboard. That sounds extensive, but it should be easy to use, resulting in a short, steep learning curve. Unlike the aforementioned apps, some of which have a long, flat learning curve.

Price and free demo version from PAGE 1

As already mentioned, the basic version has so far been available for 125 euros; the plus version for 150 euros and the all-in version for 175 euros are still pending. If you want to try out the authoring software for your next (or first) novel, there is also a free demo version available. This can be used indefinitely, but its functions are limited. Only one project with a maximum of four chapters can be created, which also cannot be exported. But that should be okay for a test. To the website of PAGE 1 with all information as well as download and purchase options you come with this link.
