My experience with Draft2Digital and Kobo Writing Life

I wanted to let people know about my experience with Draft2Digital and Kobo Writing Life. I had a problem. I self published my book, The Little Book of Quirky Christmas Stories, back in 2012 on Amazon initially and then on Smashwords. Smash words distributes to several major ebook retailers. And before too long, I could see my book on iBooks, Smashwords and Barnes and Noble. But not on Kobo. I emailed Kobo and Smashwords. Smashwords directed me to Kobo. Kobo…

Sony Ebook Reader PRS 350

I am very sad. I can see the end of the line for my little Sony ebook reader. I am very fond of it. I bought it a few years ago and it was one of the first smaller sized ebook readers.
