Today authors have choices. No longer do authors have to submit manuscripts to the traditional publishing house to be published. The Kobe Writing Life self-publishing platform is a platform that allow aspiring authors to publish their books. The Kobe Writing Platform is a platform that allows authors to be published in 138 countries and 50 languages. This is absolutely amazing. Check out some of the article below:
Kobo Writing Life: A Year Later
Since the launch of the Kobo Writing Life (KWL) self-publishing platform in the summer of 2012, the service has grown quickly and now generates about 10% of Kobo’s unit sales. The growth is also international; Writing Life authors publish works in 138 countries and in more than 50 languages. “The growth in sales has far surpassed our initial vision of what our first year would be like,” said Mark Lefebvre, Kobo director of self-publishing and author relations. Lefebvre said that Kobo’s top-50 bestsellers list usually includes five to eight KWL titles at any given time and that “there are KWL authors moving on to conventional publishers because they can prove they have a book that people want to read.” Lefebvre also noted that KWL launched with a staff of two (not including himself) and now has seven, including managers overseeing works coming from the U.K., the U.S., and Europe.
Kobo Writing Life allows anyone to upload a book to the Kobo platform, which will then make it available to a global audience. Books can be published in any language via the general Kobo store, and the KWL portal has six “localized” e-bookstores (English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, and Spanish) that also carry self-published titles. English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish represent the languages with the most KWL titles. “Kobo authors are selling books all over the world,” Lefebvre said. See More here.
