About the Book

In this book we will show you how to make and publish a book from scratch.

Rather than simply setting out some dry instructions, in this book and the accompanying video we hope you'll follow along by going through the process yourself. (The latest video and more information can be found at

In the following chapters, we'll walk you step-by-step through:

- creating an account

- creating a preview of your new test book that only you can see

- editing that preview and your sample text

- viewing the effects of your edits

- publishing your test book on Leanpub

Since what you'll be making as you follow along is just a test book, you can simply delete it when you're done. So you don't need to worry about any snafus along the way - just have fun playing with Leanpub!
