About the Book

Just Enough Co-Authoring in Leanpub...

... to be dangerous.

You've been asked if you're interested in co-authoring a book in Leanpub and you'd like to know a bit about how it all works and how to make a good contribution. You've come to the right place.

How will it help me?

The idea is to get you started on the process of using Leanpub and to what to expect as a co-author. After reading this you should;

  • Have a Leanpub account
  • Understand some of the responsibilities about writing in general and writing as a team member.
  • Have a basic understanding about using Markdown in Leanpub.

Is this book for you?

It's not written for people who are aready authors, although it might help out those who are thinking about asking someone to assist as a co-author. It's put together as a guide to get you started if you're unsure about how to make the first move. It's short and lacks depth. That's intentional. It's not called 'Just enough' for nothing :-).

Read the whole book online just to try it out!

I'm making the book content available for free because I think it's a great way to give something back to the Leanpub community as a whole, but if you want to download a copy of the PDF, ePub or Mobi version, I'm happy to accept a donation for beer money :-).


So I hope you get something out of the book, please excuse the sometimes light-hearted conversational manner in which I approach the topic and enjoy being a co-author in Leanpub!

About the Author

Sam King
Sam King

I have a passion for knowledge and I realise that part of the responsibility of gathering knowledge is being able to advance the state of the human condition in some way.

My aims in writing these books were to play with software, achieve a personal goal and try something new for fun. It also helps that I think Open Source, graphs and the visual representation of data rock in serious ways.

I don't have a formal coding background so the way I explain things is focussed on trying to impart that understanding in a simple but functional way.

I'm totally in awe of the Open Source community that has made this type of work possible.
