Welcome to Kobo Writing Life! We are a free self-publishing platform that allows authors and publishers to create, edit, and upload eBooks to Kobo and find readers around the world. We are thrilled you’ve decided to take the plunge into self-publishing with us!
The first step to joining KWL is setting up your account. You can find a step-by-step guide here.
Before you can start publishing, you need to enter your banking information so we can make sure your earnings find their way to you! Here is the guide on how to do this: How do I add my bank information?
Please note, our branch search tool isn’t perfect! If it fails to find the correct branch for your account, don’t fret. Just send us an email at email@example.com and we’d be happy to help you out!
Once your account is set up and ready to go, it’s time to start publishing your KWL debut! We have a conversion tool that will convert your word document into an ePub for you (plus it’s absolutely free). Before you start the conversion process, check out this guide on how to optimize your Word Document and avoid formatting or conversion issues.
