Senior Manager, Author Experience
Tara is responsible for the overall author experience on Kobo Writing Life (KWL), from optimizing current features to looking for new avenues of growth. As a subject matter expert in all aspects of indie publishing, her aim is to make KWL the greatest and most user-friendly self-publishing platform available.
Tara has worked for KWL since inception and was previously responsible for Content Operations. Combining technical expertise with an in-depth knowledge of the self-publishing community, she loves talking to authors and using direct feedback to make improvements that benefit the whole user base.
Joni Di Placido is the Author Engagement Specialist at Kobo Writing Life, which is a long way of saying she helps indie authors promote and sell books on Kobo. She is also the co-host of the Kobo Writing Life podcast. When she isn’t reading, you can find her teaching a yoga class, sailing around Toronto island, or listening to a great podcast!
