E-Books Abroad

October 11, 2011

Well.  When you’re on a roll, you’re on a roll. 

I’ve been talking a lot about e-books lately.  So last week I was made aware of this essay about publishing outside of North America by Filipino Speculative Fiction author Charles Tan.

I’ve heard about the problems with publishing outside of the English-language market and the problems with importing books into those markets before.  In this article Charles Tan discusses the difficulty of getting books in the Phillipines.  But he doesn’t stop there.  While theoretically there’s no reason why ebooks wouldn’t be free from import restrictions and difficulties… in practice… they’re not. 

Check out Tan’s post, if you haven’t already seen it.  I learned a thing or two about digital publishing that I didn’t already know thanks to his post.
