Amazon launches Mexico Kindle Store; Kindle Direct Publishing now available for Mexican authors and publishers
The online retailer Amazon.com announced today that it had opened a new Kindle Store for Mexico, and that Mexican authors and publishers can now use Kindle Direct Publishing.
From the two press releases:
“The vast majority of Mexicans do not have access to a bookstore in their town, so we’re happy to launch the Mexico Kindle Store today and bring a huge bookstore with over 2 million titles to anyone with an Internet connection,” said Pedro Huerta, Director of Kindle Content, Latin America. “We are also excited to bring Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite to Mexico at Gandhi stores. Kindle Paperwhite offers an unparalleled reading experience, with a display that reads like real paper, an innovative built-in front light, a small and light-weight design and 8 weeks of battery life so customers can easily dive into their favorite books.”
“Mexican authors and publishers can now self-publish their books in the new Mexico Kindle Store with KDP, making their books available to customers in Mexico and all over the world,” said Pedro Huerta, Director of Kindle Content, Latin America. “KDP is a powerful, self-service platform that allows authors to boldly experiment and fulfill their dreams of publishing. We’ve already seen many Spanish-language authors experience great success using the platform, and, in fact, there are many KDP titles in the Mexico Kindle Store already.”
