The Kobo Writing Life team is excited to announce our latest Live Q&A on November 30th, 2021. From 12:00 PM-1:00 PM EST, we’ll be chatting with Book Brush’s Kathleen Sweeney about Book Brush’s new templates, their exciting animated mockups tool and more on the Kobo Writing Life Facebook and YouTube pages. If you can’t make the takeover, feel free to comment on this post with your questions and we can ask them for you! 

Things have been busy at Book Brush! Writing is both an art and a business—which means marketing your book. In our continued effort to help authors thrive in their careers and make your marketing life easier, we’ve added a lot of new goodies to the website recently. Learn more about the new features below, and tune in to see a live demo from Kathleen on November 30th!

Animated Mockups

During our book trailer talk at NINC, we gave attendees a sneak peek at Animated Mockups. These allow you to create short videos from our templates, complete with animation, video effects, music and your book cover all in one handy meme! Simply insert your cover, download your video, and share it to social media to tap into the benefits of using video for marketing.

Animated Email Signatures

One of the biggest ways to sell books is by sending consistent emails to your readers. Our Animated Email Signatures offer a cool way to jazz up your newsletter or regular email signature with a GIF featuring your book!

New Templates

We’ve introduced lots of new Community Templates, Cover Creator, and Instant Mockups to the website!

We’ve also been working to create a lot more 3D and Community Templates, and Instant Mockups geared towards Cover Reveals. More are being added every month to help you plan your next book launch!

New Home Dashboard

We’ve remodelled the Home area to deliver the tools you need without all the clutter and confusion. The new sleek design offers everything you need all in the handy left sidebar area. You can even access your saved projects from here without having to enter a tool first.
