The new Leanpub API helps authors publish their own work in ebook format and provides instant access to sales data.
Leanpub is an online marketplace that enables writer’s to sell their ebooks in a variety of formats. Writers receive a 90% royalty (minus 50 cents) off each sale and are not prohibited from simulataneously selling their book on other marketplaces like Amazon. Unique to LeanPub, writers – particularly for computer programming books – are encouraged to publish works-in-progress and pivot their text based on reader feedback until they create a viable book product.
To do this, Leanpub provides an editing language and self-publishing workflow that allows writers to submit their work and convert the material into several formats including PDF, EPUB and Kindle. The Leanpub API allows authors to manage their workflow direct from their preferred editor.
