Leanpub sent email saying an updated version of Paul Bradshaw’s book Scraping for Journalists is available. The mail includes links to download the book in PDF, EPUB or Mobi formats – or perhaps all three , there’s no digital rights management to worry about.
Because the book is already purchased, updates are free.
Leanpub is a great way of selling ebooks: buy one, all future updates are free.
Royalties are generous for writers, around 90 per cent less a 50 cents per book fee.
Another great thing about Leanpub, is the books are reasonably priced. Scraping for Journalists doesn’t include as much information as you might get from an everyday paperback, but the price is about half what you’d pay for a printed book. There’s also a money-back guarantee.
Oh, and it case you’re wondering the Scraping for Journalists book is good too.
