Kindle Instant Character GeneratorMike Rogers just released this amazing software called Kindle Instant Character Generator. If you write fiction or if you’re thinking about writing fiction, you will want this!

It’s on a dime sale, meaning that the price goes up each time someone buys it, so you’ll want to hurry to get the best price. Right now, it’s at $7.43 – a steal for what this software does!

In short, this software generators characters and the characters profiles. This is such a helpful tool and a huge time saver! I am already using it to create character profiles and save them for my fiction books.

When you go to the sales page, there’s a short video that shows what the software does and just how easy it is to use it.

This is the review I posted about it (as BlondieWrites):

I received a review copy of Kindle Instant Character Generator.

I found the software super easy to use. It took me basically less than a couple of minutes to know how to use it (and I am not that tech savvy), so I think anyone would be able to use it with ease. That’s a huge plus for me – the ease of use.

Kindle Instant Character Generator allows you to choose whether to generate a male or female character, or you can choose to generate either. Each character generated has a lot of possibilities (that can be left as they are generated or edited and expanded upon): Name, age, gender, nationality, height and weight, eye and hair color, education, romances, occupations, relatives, skills and hobbies, quirks, and motivation.

I like the fact that you can use the character generator to easily generate characters of just about any age also.

With each individual generated character, you can turn the edit mode on to edit any details that you might wish to for that particular character. It’s super simple – just a click of the edit button. Before generating a new character, you have to turn the edit mode off. Again, super simple – just click the edit button again, turning it off.

There’s no having to look for buttons or taking hours (or weeks) trying to figure the software out. Everything is set up in such a way that there’s nothing difficult about using the software. It’s THAT easy to use.

Saving the characters that you generate is also super simple, and that’s what I like about this software more than anything – the ease of saving the character files. With just the click of a button, you can save as a .txt file, .rtf file, and/or as a .doc file. You can also copy to clipboard.

The ease and ability of saving the characters like this makes it super easy to save any generated fictional characters and then go back later and edit or expand on the character profile, using the file that you saved to your computer or external drive.

For a person that writes fiction or has been wanting to write fiction, this is a huge time saver – in terms of using the software and for generating fictional characters.

This is the best (and only) software or character generator that I’ve seen that puts out as well as it does and is this easy to use in creating characters.

I highly recommend it to anyone writing fiction or who wants to write fiction – new author or established author.
