Leanpub books currently have four "Book Themes" to choose from: Business, Technical, Fiction, and Custom. (You need to be on a Standard or a Pro plan to access the Custom theme).

These Themes reflect typical expectations for books in these genres. For example, books in the technical genre tend to have bigger page sizes that fiction books. Please note you can actually write any kind of book you want, using any theme you want!

Each theme has a number of settings that you can see on the "Book Theme" page for your book. In this article, we will show you screenshots of the various settings for each Book Theme.
