Publish Early, Publish Often

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 $8 on a $10 sale.

Authors have earned$10,261,184writing, publishing and selling on Leanpub.

You can either write your book in Markdown or you can upload PDF, EPUB and MOBI 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, Bitbucket 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 (and a great way to create them is to use your Leanpub book as a starting point or companion to the course), but learners read them and do the quizzes and exercises on the Leanpub website.
