About Leanpub for Organizations
We provide writing workflows that include optional integration with GitHub. These services offer publishers and companies powerful tools for collaboration and tracking changes over time. We strongly believe this represents the next stage in the evolution of book writing and production.
For publishers and companies who are publishing textbooks or prescriptive non-fiction books (“How To” books), we also provide a platform for the creation of books and MOOCs from a single editable plain text document, streamlining in a systematic way the natural connection between the production of textbooks and courses.

At Leanpub, we’ve spent years building great technology for individual authors to write and sell their ebooks.
Different authors prefer to write books in different ways, and keeping them happy throughout the book production process can often be difficult. This problem is compounded by the fact that editors and copy-editors also have their own ways of doing things.
Many Leanpub authors choose to use our combination of writing workflows with an online bookstore after having worked successfully with well-known book publishers. They almost always say the same thing: they loved the people they worked with, but they were frustrated by the process. Now you can use our process with your team!
Here are the ways you can write a book using Leanpub:
- In your browser with a plain text editor
- On your computer, in plain text, syncing with Git and GitHub
- On your computer, in plain text, using Dropbox
- Any way you like, and then upload the ebook files you have created for sale on our online bookstore, using our Upload writing mode
After years of developing these workflows by working closely with successful authors, we’re excited to take our Lean Publishing process and expand it to support publishers and companies like yours.
