Take your fiction online

Laterpress makes it easy to publish digital books in minutes.

Readers can easily purchase content, save their place, browse a table of contents, get emailed about new chapters, and much more.

Better yet, readers don't have to download an app or buy a reader device just to access your books.

All they need is an internet connection.

“I love Laterpress. It does all the heavy lifting so I can offer my readers a way to buy eBooks from me directly.”

- J. R. Froemling, The Drifter Alpha

Charge how and what you want

Laterpress lets you collect payment directly from readers and keeps 0% of what you're paid.

Flexible payment options mean you can charge readers a one-time or per-chapter fee for your book — or a subscription to get everything you publish.

You can even let readers choose between payment options.

* In addition to free support for direct payments, we offer optional paid features to help you grow your readership.

Designed for author freedom.

We make leaving easy. Take everything with you — your books, mailing list, and subscriptions — with no strings attached.
