One of the more interesting news stories last week was Kobo’s announcement that Kobo Writing Life now distributed audiobooks (I didn’t expect this to happen until after Rakuten bought Findaway).
Indie authors can upload an audiobook to KWL, and inside if 72 hours it will be listed with all of Kobo’s retail partners.
Or at least that is how it is supposed to work; I am looking at my KWL dashboard right now, and I don’t see audiobooks mentioned anywhere.
According to the video in the KWL blog post, there’s supposed to be a menu option for audiobooks to the right of Dashboard and eBooks, but as you can see in the above screenshot, it’s not there.
Can you check your KWL dashboard, and tell me if you can see the Audiobooks option?
