Sumbola is a cloud-based transmedia platform for writers, readers and talent that helps content creators to create, share, and sell their digital creations as either subscriptions or one-off purchases, and also generate new forms of revenue that they have never been able to access before.
Now, authoring, reading, and related talent can coexist on one platform and form Communities of Shared Interest... What we call CoSI™.
