Dabble Beta

What is a beta?

A beta is the final phase of a software product before a full release. The product is close to its final release state, but it may still change and will likely contain some bugs. Dabble is in Open Beta. This means that anyone can download and try it out.

Still under construction.

Dabble will be going through lots of change as you provide feedback. It is still baking. I need as much feedback on Dabble as possible. This is where you come in. Bug reports, feature ideas, things you like, things you dislike, questions about how to accomplish a task, give it all.

Dabble will never be finished. It will continue creating new ways to improve your ability to write and sell novels for a long while yet.


This is a rough idea of where Dabble is headed and is subject to change, especially as you provide your feedback.

  • Usability improvements (i.e. making Dabble easier to get started and use)
  • Account management, allowing cloud storage and Dabble in your browser
  • Plotting tool
  • Export to Word and perhaps PDF
  • Character tool
  • Editing markup/notes
  • Friend feedback

How can you help?

You are the key to Dabble's success. By letting your voice be heard, I will be able to take the aggregate feedback from many people like yourself into product designs, features, and improvements to help you write the novel of your dreams.

Provide feedback within Dabble.

In the upper right corner of Dabble is a button, "Get Help". Clicking this will give you a chat window where you can ask me questions, report bugs, vent frustrations, ask for features, and give me grand ideas of ways to improve Dabble.
