Writing Ebooks in Spanish

Saturday, March 8, 2014
Writing is my passion and I've already published two ebooks in spanish. The spanish ebook market is growing fast since 2011 with Amazon Spain's opening and the prices of readers being so much cheaper.

Amazon marketing people are really smart and selling readers under 100 dollars has boosted the market because it makes it a great investment in the long run, as you can read many more books which are also cheaper than their paper version that can be easily carried everywhere.
They've have seen where people needs are. People like reading stories, manuals, novels or poetry. People like reading for fun more and more, and literary books are getting behind.

Now many spanish writers (including myself) have come to the self-publishing adventure and you don't have to be a Nobel prize winner to get there.
Well, that doesn't mean you can publish with no quality at all. Bad quality ebooks will get your reputation down in the long run, and your sales with it.

Writing books in spanish will open the door for you for the new spanish emerging ebook market which includes Spain and all South American countries (that makes more than 500 millions readers).
For this reason if you've got an ebook that sells well, consider translating it to internationalize it.

Spanish literature "crisis" and the wonderful opportunity

I think that a part of the literary genre written in the last 30 years in spanish is mostly boring. Some authors think only about their intellectual incomprehensible thing, instead of writing exciting stories or useful stuff for the public.
Intellectual or depressive writing style and expensive paper book price have ruined the market.

A few years ago I was invited to a literary group meeting to present my novel and poetry and when I had my turn to read my writings aloud I was criticized, they said to me:
"You haven't read enough in your life, you could never write a book".
All that because I've read more technical books than literary books at that time.

Well, I wish they could see what I have done now; I've written more than 400 articles and two books.
I'm writing my first english book now  and continuing my third book in spanish and I didn't listen to them of course!
When you start writing it is normal to get critics.
 
But lo and behold we have now a wonderful opportunity with all the self-publishing platforms. There are new writers that are getting a great success and now it's the time to get your share in this developing market.
