Wattpad Announces Partnership with Spanish Language Self Publishing Company Bubok

Toronto, Canada, July 27, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Wattpad, the world’s largest ebook community announces new partnership with Bubok, the leading self-publishing service for authors writing in Spanish.

Each month, writers from around the world visit Wattpad online and through Wattpad mobile apps to upload their stories, interact with readers, receive feedback and promote their work to millions of readers. Now, Bubok authors may connect their work with Wattpad's readership and increase their audience by using Wattpad’s unique social networking platform.

"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," explains Angel María Herrera, CEO of Bubok. 

Wattpad accounts can be directly linked to Bubok’s print-on-demand services, creating a straightforward way for readers to support their favorite authors. Wattpad’s agreement with Bubok encourages writers of both communities to interact and increase awareness of their work. The popularity of Wattpad apps for mobile devices, including apps for Android devices, will create additional value for Bubok writers interested in making their writing available to read and purchase on multiple platforms.

"Wattpad currently sees approximately fifty percent of its traffic from non-English speaking countries," explains Wattpad CEO and co-founder Allen Lau. "In conjunction with the international launch of Wattpad’s latest Android app, our partnership with Bubok creates additional opportunities for Spanish language authors to connect with millions of readers."
