I “met” someone from KOBO online this past week, and have learned something wonderful. It seems that I can publish directly to KOBO without having ISBN#’s. I thought otherwise. So, I’ll be setting that up and publishing everything directly to KOBO in the next week or two. That will mean that new titles will be available there sooner, which is very exciting. I like Smashwords, but sometimes the feed to other portals is really really slow.
I would have to have ISBN#’s to go directly to Apple (and I hear that it’s harder to do) so you Apple people will have to continue to be patient. I’ll keep listening, and maybe will learn something that will enable that to change this year, too.
Edited to add – I’m going to modify this plan slightly. I’ll finish SWITCH first, publish it directly to KOBO and everywhere else, THEN go back and move the other titles to feed directly to KOBO.
