Writing the next Leanpub bestseller with Scrivener

About the Book

Did you always want to write a Leanpub book but didn’t want to mess around with a text editor and a myriad of small files?

Did you start writing a Leanpub book in a text editor and then found out how hard it is to keep track of anchors whenever you want to cross-reference a part? How much work it is to rearrange sections and chapters? How hard it is to manually number and renumber figures?

Did you always wish that Leanpub would auto-number appendices and insert a table of figures into your book?

If you answered affirmatively to one of these questions, then this book is for you.

This is a book about writing a Leanpub book with a wonderful editor Scrivener. 

This book is free, as is the tooling that connects Scrivener with Leanpub! So go ahead - write a next bestseller!
