Kobo Offers Higher Royalties on Self-Published Titles Released This Fall

The Kobo website explains more: “All authors signed up for Kobo Writing Life will automatically get an additional 10% in royalties (80% rather than 70%) for any IPP Term sales between September 1, 2012 and November 30, 2012 EST).” Follow this link to see the terms and conditions (PDF version).
