Can I download the Editor onto my computer?

No, the Editor can only be used when you’re logged into your Reedsy account. It’s not a downloadable app. This allows us to securely store backups of your book on our servers.

Can I work collaboratively with another author in the Reedsy Book Editor?
At the moment, this feature is still in development. For now, we recommend sharing the login details with the person you would like to write with.
