Hilda Hopkins, El Asesinato que Ella Tejio
I have published my first Spanish Language edition of a StreetWise Publications title. ‘Hilda Hopkins, Murder She Knit’ is now ‘Hilda Hopkins, El Asesinato que Ella Tejio’, thanks to Maria Nalus of Bogota, Colombia. I have published it in print at Pocket Size like the other novellas and must now make it an eBook in .mobi and .epub and get it out to Amazon.es and iBooks, BN and Sony et al.
I am very excited by this, the first step on the journey of being a truly international independent publisher. It is making the very most of the media and technology available and something all writers that self publish should contemplate. We English speakers are not the only readers in the world. There are billions of intelligent people out there who don;t read English, but that doesn’t make them not worth our while. If our books are good enough, they should be available to as many people as possible, just as we should try and read English translations of as many foreign works as we can. Perhaps in this way we can appreciate our differences rather than use them as an excuse. Truly, el uno mundo! One world!
