Post: RE: marketing your book

Kobo is my second best market after Kindle. I don't know why this is. My Canadian sales on Kobo are better than for Kindle but this may well be expected given the provenance of Kobo. I find the web-s...

Nice to meet you Lesley-Ann. I've got two e-readers as well, a Sony and a Kindle. I like the Sony as it was my first e-reader and was a real life safer after I'd had an accident and kept dropping my b...

Nice to meet you. I'd also like to see a forum for Sony. It was my first e-reader and a lovely thing.

I've read that WH Smiths is struggling in all areas so maybe this is symptomatic of them. I wonder if they have lost their focus and have diversified too much. At one time they were the premier book c...

Nice to meet you Cally. I think the other e-readers have a steep mountain to climb to catch up with Amazon. 'Kindle' has even begun to be used as a generic name for all e-readers. Martin
