Leanpub is the combination of two things: a powerful ebook and course writing platform, and an online storefront where you can buy our authors' ebooks and courses.
By combining a simple and elegant writing and publishing workflow with a store focused on selling in-progress and completed ebooks and online courses, Leanpub is more than the sum of its parts, making it easy for authors to publish updated versions of their ebooks and courses for all of their readers, amongst other things.
Leanpub's self-published authors earn a high percentage of royalties: 80% on every sale. This is why we show you how much the author is going to earn when you're choosing what price to pay. With our "variable pricing" model, you decide how much you're going to spend, and how much the author is going to get.
If you'd like to read more about what we're up to, here's a link to Leanpub cofounder & CEO Peter Armstrong's manifesto and book on Lean Publishing.
