Kobo Writing Life and Self-Publishing

Kobo Writing Life

I signed up a few weeks ago to be notified when Kobo Writing Life becomes live and I got a notification yesterday. I decided to opt out of Kobo on my Smashwords account and give KWL a whirl.

Easiest. Self-publishing platform. Ever.

It took ten minutes to publish both my books. Seriously. AND they will pay me in Canadian dollars. AND they will pay me direct deposit. AND their stats page is awesome. And on and on. Love it. Word of advice though...upload .epub versions of your books. Any other version looks wonky on their preview thingie.

So without further ado, Just You and Someone Else are now available HERE and HERE.


It's been about two and a half weeks since I self-published my books and let me tell you, it's been an experience. My sales have been modest but steady. I've gotten some amazing reviews/ratings and some "meh" ones. But the "meh" doesn't bother me. Not everyone is going to like my books and writing. They're not for everyone. Such is life. My skin is as thick as that steel-cut oatmeal my husband forces down sometimes.

Anyway, things are definitely going in the right direction with my self-pub experiment.

You can now buy Just You and Someone Else

Remember I said I was going to self-publish my first two books someday? The two books I'd "permanently" trunked? Well, after four days of formatting issues and torture, I finally did it. Just You and Someone Else are officially for sale. They are a series, by the way, and were written a few years ago. Right now they're just ebooks, but in the near future I also plan to publish with CreateSpace.

You can buy Just You HERE and HERE.

You can buy Someone Else HERE and HERE.
