Wattpad, a digital eBook community, has partnered with Bubok, a Spanish-language self-publishing company. Wattpad is already partners with self-publishing companies Smashwords and Lulu.com.
Wattpad currently reports seeing about 50% of its traffic from non-English speaking countries. This partnership extends the social network’s reach to Spanish language self-published authors.
Now self-published Spanish-language authors can reach readers directly through Wattpad’s social network. Wattpad users can directly link to Bubok’s print-on-demand services, so that readers can purchase books directly from the author.
Angel Maria Herrera, CEO of Bubok commented: “Bubok aims to fulfill the dream of publishing for many authors, but also help their work reach the widest possible audience. Giving writers the chance to make their literature available on Wattpad allows authors the opportunity to reach thousands of new users that may be interested in reading and buying their books.”
