Over the years we've built a few different ways to write and publish a Leanpub book, to match the styles and preferences of different types of authors and projects.
We've got a quick walkthrough for each of our writing modes. You should be able to complete each one within 5 to 15 minutes. Once you're done, your book will be set up and you'll know all the basics!
