Kobo Writing Life manually vets the e-books submitted to their service to ensure that quality content is being submitted to their online store and sold worldwide. In a recent email to authors, Kobo has disclosed that over the upcoming Christmas season they are not going to be publishing anything, until the staff have returned.
“Just a reminder that as the holiday season approaches the schedule for our regular content loading and processing services will be adjusted.
Please be advised that normal content processing between KWL and the Kobo website will be unavailable between December 19, 2016 and December 29, 2016.
To ensure all new titles and promotional pricing scheduled for this period are available on site, please deliver all assets, epubs, covers, and metadata, on or before end of day Monday, December 19.
Any on sale or price effective dates already in our system (using our price scheduling tools) and scheduled between December 19 and December 29 will be respected without delays.”
