A collection of some of the covers from this Top-Earning titles from 2016

Apart from seeing the “awards” sweeps of authors that included Audrey Carlan, Angela Marsons, Helen Hardt and Kathryn Croft, you’ll notice some interesting Box Sets on the list from authors like Bella Andre, Barbara Freethy, Mark Dawson and David Archer.

And, in ongoing celebration of Kobo’s great partnership with FNAC in France, the top-earning title from KWL this past year was from French author Julie de Lestrange. The other non-English title to make this list is another French title from Anna Zaires, who is the only author to have both English and French titles on this Top 50 list.

Congratulations to all of these authors!
