I just discovered KOBO :).
KOBO is an intriguing online ebook sales system. Many people (like me) haven't ever heard of KOBO. Other people live in KOBO and only buy books from them. KOBO reaches a variety of countries, and their usage varies country to country. As long as you're not exclusive elsewhere, like Kindle, it's well worth listing in KOBO as well. The more readers you can reach, the better!
The area you want to go to is http://www.kobo.com/writinglife - the KOBO Writing Life area. Create an account there. It's quick and easy.
Once the account is set, it's time to start loading in your ebook. You want to have an EPUB version of your ebook, a JPG cover image, and the basics like the book title, description, and so on. The screens are well designed, easy to fill in, and intuitive. Once you fill in the details, voila! Your book gets put into the loading cycle. It usually takes a day or two before it goes live.
KOBO is well worth checking out if you're self-publishing your books.
Have any of you guys used KOBO? I'll let you know after a month or two if I get any sales via their system. Some authors report that they get quite good sales.
