Calling all content creators!
Whether you write fan fiction, secret diaries or tech manuals, FastPencil lets you write, edit, publish and promote your book project from just one simple workspace. Choose from Private, Marketplace or Wide Distribution, depending on your desired audience reach.



Get serious about the book business. FastPencil's author-friendly workspace manages content, collaborators and revisions, and allows for instant previews in print and ebook formats. From your dashboard, manage edits, cover design and distribution, and track sales and revenue reporting from month to month.



Streamline your book business with a custom imprint. The FastPencil Publisher Account enables selected admins and authors to self-publish under your custom Publishing Imprint. Published books will feature your publishing business logo and name, which are tied to the metadata throughout the distribution process.
