A step-by-step guide on how to write and publish books on the web, ala Superbooks.

Bubblin is a world class open and managed storytelling substrate for writers and artists. It is a community of creative people with a hunch for longform storytelling. It comes pre-integrated with Bookiza—the open source book reification framework!

Superbooks work on all devices, all viewports and all modern operating systems out there. See support information.

How does this work?

Taking your book to everyone!, not just those behind iOS or Kindle (it works for them too), is as easy as writing a blog! Use a subtle blend of "app development" techniques and classy responsive design (template layouts) to forge together a bunch of web-pages into a beautiful book that people would love.

Books on Bubblin are also future ready i.e. progressively enhanced and can be read straight off your browser offline. You'll be riding a bestseller with less than half-the-effort elsewhere!

The Official Handbook has been created using the very same tools and tips it describes.

I'm a JavaScript outlier. Don't believe in what most of the developer community thinks of a flat web.
