Kobo Update: A Holiday Recipe Sampler, a 48-Hour eBook Sale & More [5]

[7]A new promotion from Workman [7] provides an exclusive free sampler of 15 holiday recipes from Come Home to Supper by Christy Jordan to anyone who sets up a Kobo eBook account through an ABA member bookstore between October 15 and November 12. Accounts can be set up online, through dedicated Kobo devices, or via the free Kobo app (available for Android, Blackberry, and iOS).

Customers who set up a new account during the promotional period will also receive a discount code for 30 percent off the purchase of the full-length Come Home to Supper Kobo eBook. The discount code must be redeemed by November 30, 2013.

The ebook short is available now on all IndieCommerce websites, so stores can set up links before the promotion starts. Here’s the promotion fact sheet [8], and web banners are available in the Kobo section of Designs and Downloads [9]. Web banners can be placed on a store homepage and linked to the Kobo information page on the store site. A tent-card sign for in-store promotion is included in the October Red Box mailing.

Questions about the Come Home to Supper eBook sampler promotion should be addressed to kobosupport@bookweb.org [10].
