I decided a while ago that I didn’t want to have my books exclusively anywhere so A Single Step has, for some considerable time, not been enrolled in KDP Select but has been listed on Kobo, Nook and Smashwords (which distributes widely). However, I have been extremely bad at advertising this fact, and I need to work on this.
What is even worse is that Before the Dawn hasn’t been enrolled in KDP for months and yet I haven’t got round to even listing that anywhere else so irritatingly I’m not only missing out on the benefits of being in KDP but I’m also losing out on the chance of sales elsewhere.
That, however is about to change…
A newsletter from Kobo Writing Life popped into my inbox this evening advertising a massive 50% off sale for any title published by Kobo for 4 days!! Details as follows…
Customers will be able to redeem 50% off of any title published by KWL (Kobo Writing Life), using promo codes, an unlimited number of times – so here I am, letting my readers know about this incredible opportunity to stack up on eBooks while you can! This sale runs in different dates by territory, and each territory has it’s own promo code. See here for the full details.
Canada October 28th – October 31st Promo Code: CA50SALE
United States/Australia/New Zealand October 27th – October 30th Promo Code: GET50SALE
United Kingdom October 30th – November 2nd Promo Code: UK50SALE
This link will take you straight to A Single Step which is only 99p normally so what a bargain you will get with this offer!!
I have also been kicked up the backside into loading Before the Dawn up to Kobo this evening and this is also now available!!
I should also add that this offer is totally down to KWL not the authors!
But hold onto your horses for there is more…

Thicker than Water is currently enrolled in KDP but I will not be re-enrolling that and this time I will be much, much quicker in loading it up elsewhere. It’s all an experiment isn’t it? So let’s see how it goes for a while doing it this way 🙂
It sounds like Kobo are trying to compete with Amazon by making their offerings more attractive for readers and authors. I will be interested to find out more about how you get on with Kobo as I’ve currently only got my books with Amazon. 🙂
They certainly are and I am going to be very interested to see if this gets any interest at all Heather. I desperately want to have my books all spread as widely as possible but it comes down to whether or not it is worth the extra effort. I shall be pushing the books for the time being on the other platforms to see what happens and shall then decide on the way forward 🙂 Many thanks for commenting.
