Imagine a world where authors can earn money writing books...
You can use Leanpub to write, publish and sell an ebook or online course.
We pay 80% royalties. That's not a typo: you earn $16 on a $20 sale. If we sell 5000 non-refunded copies of your book for $20, you'll earn $80,000.
Authors have earned$12,594,097writing, publishing and selling on Leanpub.
You can either write your book in Markdown or you can upload PDF or EPUB files to sell in our store.
If you are writing in Markdown, you can use our simple in-browser text editor, or you can write on your computer and sync with GitHub or Dropbox. Either way, you can publish your Leanpub ebook with one click. You can publish your book while you're writing it, or wait until it is done: it's up to you.
You can create a Leanpub course in Markdown as well. Leanpub courses are like Leanpub books, but with quizzes and exercises that learners complete on the Leanpub website to earn a certificate of completion. To learn more about how to create a Leanpub course, you can watch this video on YouTube which shows the entire process from signup to publish!
