Earlier this month Kobo partnered with the French retailer Fnac to offer a print-on-demand service through Bookelis. Authors who have their books in Kobo Writing Life can pay 49 euros to get their print book listed in 10,000 French-language libraries around the world.
If an author's book sells well in this service, FNAC will give it a marketing boost. If a book sells between 1 and 799 copies, the author will be highlighted as one of the top 100 authors Fnac.com. If a book sells between 800 and 1200 copies, it will be promoted on Fnac's website, and of more than 1200 copies are sold, the author will be interviewed, and the title will be promoted in a newsletter.
