Permanent COVID-19 Relief Pricing for a Limited Time

Many are struggling during the current worldwide pandemic, both financially and emotionally. The world needs stories—your stories—to inspire, to lift, and to provide an escape. To help with this, we are reducing our pricing during the next little while to make it more affordable for you to write better novels with Dabble. Craft your story. Help the world.

These price reductions will be locked in for you. Your pricing will not increase for the lifetime of your subscription, even once we restore our original pricing.

Do I have access to my work if I unsubscribe?

Yes. You continue to have access to your manuscripts for at least 1 year from the time you unsubscribe. Sign in to view and export your work any time after your subscription ends. You will not be able to write any new words or use Dabble’s features, but all your existing manuscripts and notes will be viewable in read-only mode.

Do I own my work in Dabble?

We’re extremely supportive of authors and their rights. You retain the copyright of any work you write with Dabble’s platform. You will always have access to your work, whether or not you’re an active subscriber. And everything you write will always be yours. Period.

Is my writing private and secure?

Yes. Dabble stores your work locally on your computer and syncs it to your secure Dabble account when online over an encrypted connection. All data is stored encrypted at rest on Google’s cloud services which are managed professionally by Google engineers and IT personnel. Only Dabble support operatives have access to your writing and only access it in order to provide support.

We will never share your work with anyone without express permission (e.g. such as a share feature within Dabble).

When you sign out from Dabble on a computer, your local database is deleted so no trace of your data will exist on that computer.

What happens to my work if Dabble shuts down?

Dabble is here to stay. The business is healthy and sustainable. If Dabble were to close down its service, we promise to provide plenty of warning for you to export your work. Your data is saved locally on your computer and synced to your online Dabble account, so you could continue to write without Dabble running for awhile after Dabble was gone (just like you would offline).
