Kobo Sponsors Opening Up To Indie Authors Campaign With Alliance of Independent Authors

The Alliance of Independent Authors is partnering with Kobo to publish a guidebook for authors and people in the publishing industry to develop ways to broadly include self published works in the global book selling ecosystem. I am all for this, but I wish Kobo would reinstate my titles in its UK ecommerce sites after a fiasco last fall when THEY REMOVED ALL SELF PUBLISHED TITLES from their stores because of some complaints about erotica. They only pulled self published erotica mind you. My novels aren't erotica but I have yet to have Kobo allow their UK customers to buy them again. Hopefully Kobo's supposed support for self publishers will include selling them to people in the UK. Thankfully my titles remain available at other countries through Kobo.
