For Publishers

Use Leanpub to produce your ebooks easily and start selling with one click!

Our publisher program is simple: For any new book created by a publisher the price is $99 per book. Our publisher program helps forward-thinking publishers like TidBITS Publishing easily produce dozens of professional ebooks using Leanpub’s simple, proven workflow. Publishers own their ebooks and can sell them wherever they wish. If a publisher chooses to use the Leanpub storefront, we pay 90% minus 50 cents in revenue per paid sale. Using Leanpub for ebook production is a pragmatic choice, like using a third-party printing press for print book production or using AWS for web hosting.

At Leanpub, we've started building the best platform for publishers to publish and sell ebooks.

So far, we've built a great way for individual authors to publish their ebooks while they're still works in progress, so they can interact with readers and build a following even before their books are complete. That's part of what Lean Publishing is all about.

Now, we're taking our Lean Publishing workflow and expanding it to support publishers like you, so you can integrate the latest ebook publishing methods into your existing print publishing workflow.

If you want more information, we'd love to chat. We genuinely want to know what you need from your ideal ebook publishing platform, so we're evolving this program with feedback from publishers. If you sign up now, you'll have a real impact on the publishing platform we're developing.

If you sell in the Leanpub storefront, you earn 90% - 50 cents per book sale in revenue. You are responsible for remitting royalties to your authors based on this amount based on your contract with your authors. Leanpub does not handle splitting of royalties and remitting royalties to authors for you.
