As lots of you know, I’m an Indie Author who publishes on Kindle, but I also publish on Kobo, so I’m going to make this post about Kobo and being a Kobo Author, become sometimes I don’t think that Kobo and being a Kobo Author get the praise they deserve. Kobo is German, rather than American and I know a lot of the bigger Authors, well bigger than me shall we say, who I’m not going to name because that’s not fair to them also publish on Kobo. The problem I feel with Kobo is that they just aren’t as big as Amazon so don’t get so much publicity.
So here’s my view of Kobo as an Author who does publish with them. They are brilliant. Other’s may disagree with me and that is fine with me, but to me they are always there for me. I can contact them at any time if I want to ask a question or have a problem. But, I can honestly say I’ve never had a problem with Kobo. I get my Royalties paid on time and they are fair. We have times when they have Chat sessions with them. Part of Kobo which I enjoy is there is a fun side to them as well. They’ve just secured a deal to sell our books, or their catalogue as they call it in Canada at no cost at all to the Author.
So all I’m saying is, Kobo is out there as well. And my personal treatment by them as been fantastic and I’m not going to say otherwise. Just because they’re smaller, doesn’t mean my treatment by them is bad. My treatment is fantastic and for that, I thank Kobo.
