  • Dream up a story people will love

    You can use Leanpub to write your story or novel on your computer in a folder you share with us.

    That way, we make it easy for you to just write, and also get the benefits of our powerful self-publishing workflow, without any manual uploading or sending any files.

    Once you’re set up on Leanpub, you can just type and save your work as you normally would, so nothing gets in the way of your writing process.

  • Publish & sell while you write

    People often think that writing has to be done in private from start to finish. But what if you want to start building an audience before you’re completely done writing your story or novel?

    With Leanpub you can easily publish as you write. Publishing a new chapter and making it available for all your existing and future readers is as easy as clicking a button.

    Publishing serially lets you start building an audience for your book right away. It’s a great motivator, even for the most disciplined authors!

  • Distribute your book when you're done

    For every copy of your book sold through Leanpub’s online bookstore, you will earn a great royalty rate of 90% minus 50 cents per sale.

    When you’re done writing, you can take your ebook files and put them up for sale on Amazon, Smashwords, or anywhere you like. You can even use our easy print-ready PDF feature to make a print copy available through sites like Lulu and CreateSpace.

    You are not required to sell through our storefront - your book belongs to you!
