Yes, we would love to have more fiction authors self-publishing their books and stories on Leanpub!

Leanpub is popular with authors of "technical" books because our ability to support in-progress writing and publishing, and setting up our indie publishing platform so books can be instantly updated, are powerful tools for people writing about cutting-edge and constantly evolving subjects.
