I sent an email to Smashwords yesterday to ask why Kobo (whom they distribute to, among others) still hadn’t made my second book, A City of Stone, available for sale. I received a rather terse reply, saying that Sony has decided to close down their ebook business and has turned over it’s entire catalogue to Kobo. Needless to say, Kobo has been overwhelmed by the onslaught and new entries from other distributors has taken a back seat.
So there you have it, folks. Even indies are subject to the whims of major corporations. I’m sorry for the inconvenience.
