I just wanted to write with compliments – I’ve just re-published three of my backlist through Kobo as an indie author, and your system was by far and away the easiest to use, most logical, and most seamless of all the platforms I’ve used. Congrats on such a fantastic system. I’m so impressed I’m putting together an exclusive box set for Kobo, because I know the process of publishing it will be so painless!

Self-publishing has changed my life in every conceivable way. KWL is an outstanding platform, thanks to the ease of uploading and the advanced sales data broken out into an easy-to-understand map that I love.

Marie Force

I sell in so many more countries via KWL than anywhere else—64 countries so far! No other platform even comes close, and that kind of worldwide coverage is priceless.

KWL is the easiest platform to upload to, hands down, and there’s always help if you need it. Authors have no excuse for not going direct with KWL!

#318 – Plotting a Compelling Thriller with Ruth Ware Kobo Writing Life Podcast

In this episode, we spoke to bestselling author Ruth Ware about her upcoming release, Zero Days, available on June 20th, 2023. Ruth’s novels have been translated into over 40 languages as well as optioned for film and TV, and she has garnered numerous bestsellers internationally. Zero Days is a tech-based, fast-paced thriller wherein the protagonist finds that there is nowhere to hide, and enemies are everywhere. We are very excited for everyone to read Ruth’s latest! We discussed Ruth’s journey to becoming a full-time writer, how she develops the plots for her thrillers, what her writing process looks like, the difference between a “twist” and a “reveal” in storytelling, and much more.  Learn more about Ruth and her work on her website, and find her on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
