Gertie, does this mean that your Kobo sales fell after you took them off Smashwords and went direct?Gertie Kindle 'a/k/a Margaret Lake' said:When I was with SW, I sold twice as much on Kobo as I did all the others combined.
I have a very good friend who is Canadian, and who recently published his first book: I tried to get him to get someone to make a test purchase for me on Kobo, but he doesn't know a single other person who has a Kobo. I'm surprised, considering he lives in Toronto.Dalya said:They'll let you upload a variety of file formats. I've uploaded both epub and mobi. The interface is nice. If you're not in Select, I say why not.
I have not gotten much traction there myself, but I'm Canadian, so I like knowing my books are on there and available, just in case.
Thanks Rue, I'll check them out..it can't hurtruecole said:No ISBN needed for Kobo. They supply you with their own.
I sell about a copy a month on Kobo, but at least they're buying my $2.99 collection! Nobody on Amazon seems to want to touch it.
No. I took them off all other outlets and went with Select. After a year with Select, I'm taking my four book series out and pubbing through SW again. I hope to go permafree with the first book.Richardcrasta said:Gertie, does this mean that your Kobo sales fell after you took them off Smashwords and went direct?
The same may have happened to me too!
Also, if what someone else said about sales being mainly from Australia/NZ/Canada is true (and it's been true for me--one in the UK), then it might suggest what kinds of titles I ought to sell there. Especially for Australia/NZ, I think serious/political titles would be out.
