Writing With Scrivener and Leanpub

Write and Publish As You Go

About the Book

This book shows one way to publish as you go using the powerful writing tool Scrivener along with Leanpub, a publish as you write platform.

This approach provides an easy to follow work flow, allows for sharing draft work with beta readers, and makes frequent and periodic updates extremely easy.

Use this path to publishing to motivate yourself, focus on content and get draft copies of your ebooks out there in the hands of others.

Writers want to be read. So, publish early, publish often, get read early, get read often.

Scrivener supports research, writing, editing, file exports, and is one of the best content creation apps available.

Leanpub provides a rapid publishing experience for ebooks.

This book was published here as a work in progress. It is now complete. I will continue to make updates as needed or in response to reader feedback.
