When it comes to book marketing and establishing herself in the marketplace, Miller says: "I have to tell myself to be patient. Writing and reading books is part of an intimate relationship. You need to build a dialog and trust. It's really no different from a lot of other products and services. Building credibility with the readers is very important."
BookBaby president Brian Felsen interviewed Ami Greko (founder of Book Camp NYC and manager of vendor relations in the US for Kobo) about new ways authors can cross-sell eBooks, promote their work both online and in the real world, and incentivize book marketing experiments.
According to a story on TeleRead.com, Kobo’s latest eReader (the Kobo Vox) is now available in stores– well, at least in Best Buy. Kobo has over 7 million users in 170 countries, and the Kobo Vox connects those readers in new ways; it is the “world’s first social eReader.” According to TeleRead, the Kobo Vox:
… enables readers to start conversations with other readers and discover new books and authors through their social network. With a vivid color display, Kobo takes the reading experience to a whole new level – rich color books, newspapers, magazines, music, video, over 15,000 apps, games and social feeds – all on an open Android platform.
BookBaby announces partnerships with two eBook retailers focused on the social aspect of reading and recommending books.
Both Kobo and Copia are great, forward-thinking companies, and we’re proud to add them to our list of distribution partners (including Apple’s iBookstore- for iPad, Amazon- for Kindle, Barnes & Noble- for Nook, and the Sony Store- for Sony Reader).
Here is some more in-depth info about each of them individually.
