More On Writing Life, Kobo's New Self Publishing Platform

Yesterday I wrote about the announcement that Kobo had created a self publishing portal for writers called Writing Life.

At that time we didn't know much, only that it would enable authors to offer their books, free of charge, for however long they liked. This is in contrast to Amazon's KDP program which allows writers to offer their works free for a maximum of 5 days every 3 months.

Yesterday Kobo released more information:

- Writing Life files use the ePub format which can be played on any eReader.
- Writing life with be available to the English speaking public at the end of June
- You can sign up for Kobo Writing Life here.

Kobo has also released screenshots of their interface. The "Sales at a Glance" page is impressive.
