Publish for the world. Really.
Welcome to Bubblin Superbooks—The online café of books on web.
As a storyteller you are the prime-mover of our community (well, our industry) and therefore you are at the centre of everything that we do. Bubblin will happily take your book around the world for a very low cost: zero. Exactly.
By *around the world* we mean via web and not just to those who own flashy devices like iOS or Kindle. We want your book to be available to pretty much everyone on planet, just like a video is with Youtube.com.
See support for our Superbook container to learn how this works.
How to start?
All you've to do is sign up for a Bubblin Account (It's FREE!) and reach us on email.
We love helping new writers on web and guide them through myriad different issues that spring up while making a digital book. Our goal will be to help you figure out both book-making & distribution challenges, so that your work can land on its feet as softly as it can.
Besides us, our community has a bunch of helpful people, with vast editorial and design experience, and a network of key people that you're going to need: developers, designers and reviewers, to help you make the project of dreams a reality.
Interested? Drop us a note on our email and we'd love to talk.
Drive it yourself?
Love taking control of things yourself?
Bubblin allows you to have complete control on your project. We have a bunch of open source tools and templates to help you go from zero to super productize in minutes and finish your work without any external help. It's doable.
Sign up if you haven't already. Then visit our tools page to get a high-level view of what our editing tools look like and then jump straight to documentation page to dive deep into the rabbit-hole. Use our free and open source layout templates to kickstart your project and be up and running in minutes.
Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
Who are we?
Bubblin is a strongly opinionated community of book-lovers on web. We're a small but thriving group of developers, designers and storytellers who believe that books should become a first class citizen of the web. In fact we want books to happen on web right now.
We love to host silky responsive e-books on web that work everywhere and scale infinitely. Our focus ranges from choosing typesetting to tight layouts, responsive rendering to performant page transitions at ~60 F.P.S.
People love all rounded products that are masterfully crafted according to their needs. A well-paginated story in form of book leafs bound together on a spine that could be turned over and over again with a feel of physical books is exactly what most book lovers crave. We believe that feel of page turns is important for the experience of books; it separates the idea of books from let's say a sliding powerpoint presentation.
What is in for you?
There are countless advantages (we've listed some) of publishing directly on web. It opens up your work to "maximum readership potential" of the planet and lowers friction by an order of magnitude for the readers. You see not everyone uses the Kindle, and PDFs don't even feel like books to begin with.
Our books on the other hand work everywhere and are a lot more accessible and SEO friendly. They are offline-first, meaning they work with or without a live Internet connection.
We are building a better forte of books for the web and wish to welcome you to join our community of creators. Our team will assist you in every possible way, right from setting your manuscript afoot to getting your final book out (starting point finished product) all along the journey. Once it is ready we also assist in taking it to readers and help you engage with them.
