Listen


Episode #140 is a discussion with Scott Patten and Peter Armstrong from LeanPub.com  – they want to be THE website for publishing “in-progress books”. We'll be talking about lean publishing and how that's different than self publishing and about how leanpub.com works. In the upcoming part 2 of the podcast, we'll talk more about how they are applying the concepts of the Lean Startup methodology to their service and their business.

Conflict of interest disclosure:  I have published a number of books through Leanpub. I'm a huge raving fan of their service and the way Scott and Peter have worked with me as I learned and used Leanpub.com.

  1. Great podcast. This approach is becoming more and more compelling to me. I like the idea that a lean pub author ends up being in a better position to negotiate books that they have demonstrated will have a market.
