The Association of Independent Publishers of Ecuador is a group of small and medium-sized cultural initiatives, committed to the need to come together to generate policies intrinsic to the book sector.

The goals include:
1. Promote the development of the publishing industry at the national and Latin American levels by developing cooperation and exchanges.
2. Ensure the free circulation of books, nationally and internationally.
3. Promote the culture of books and reading as essential factors for human development, self-actualisation and citizenry.
4. Contribute to the effective democratisation of books and reading in Ecuador as a means of promoting respect for the right of every citizen to participate openly and freely in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts, to contribute to scientific progress and to enjoy its benefits.
5. Promote bibliodiversity, the expression of cultural diversity through the book, as a guarantee of the plurality of literary, artistic and scientific contents and approaches.
6. Channel initiatives of independent and/or independent publishers to preserve the public status of the book and related editorial products.
7. Encourage the recognition of editorial work and literary creativity in Ecuador and Latin America.
8. Represent the interests of partners nationally and internationally and develop initiatives that strengthen the role of the publisher as a vital cultural agent.
9. Promote, encourage, organise, sponsor and contribute to the development of national policies aimed at developing the publishing industry and promoting reading in Ecuador.
10. Promote the defence of the rights of the author, the illustrator, artist and publisher, by promoting a culture of respect for intellectual property and by encouraging the application of the mechanisms provided by law against editorial piracy and unauthorized reprography.
11. Promote and conduct activities towards the consolidation and expansion of the book markets, both in Ecuador and abroad.
12. Promote the circulation of books at the national and international levels.
13. Encourage the expansion of book circulation networks and support the development of independent bookstores.
14. Advocate for the development of a national network of public libraries.

The Association of Independent Publishers of Ecuador is therefore pleased to share the efforts made by its members towards the realisation of the objectives set out in its founding statutes, namely the development of reading in the country. We believe that this humble contribution, conceived for both the reader and the professionals of the book world, will help to foster the links between authors and their readerships.

Ediciones del Ermitaño, Editorial Division of Solar Servicios Editoriales, is backed by the experience and prestige of over 29 years in the market and a growing collection of poetry, short stories, novels, and other genres. When the possibility of using digital technology emerged in the editorial world, Ediciones del Ermitaño was the first to create a collection that fully takes advantage of that technology. And so “Minimalia”, our main collection, was born, in which we have published over 250 titles and which has sold thousands of copies. We never run out of any title, since we have the capacity to reprint according to the needs and demand; this has allowed us to open the doors to many young writers who have been able to publish their first, and very promising, works, side by side with the accomplished writers that also are part of our catalog. Thus, the “Minimalia” collection has been a pioneer and a platform for experimentation that established the example and marked new guidelines. It is a collection that explores and explodes the new digital technologies surrounding composition and production, in order to create new paradigms that carry the word from the authors to ultimately thousands of readers.

F&G Editores is a Guatemalan independent publishing house founded in 1994. 18 years after its creation, it is about to become a leading publishing house in Central America, both because of its authors, publishing list and contents, and also because of its distribution network. Despite the challenges of a high illiteracy rate in the country and a total absence of State support for publishing, F&G Editores has survived. Moreover, it has consolidated its position as one of Guatemala’s leading publishing house. Not affiliated to any party, this publishing house commits to building a democratic and peaceful society, in which human rights are fully respected; a priority for the Guatemalan society who experienced more than 36 years of internal armed conflicts and from which it is still recovering. F&G Editores publishes Guatemalan and Central American literature of various genres and has been singled out as being the only non institutional Guatemalan publishing house who publishes books addressing the issue of collective historical memory.

Baile del Sol is a publishing house located on the Canary Islands, off the coast of the African continent. It was established in 1992 in the form of a cultural association. Its founders had already been involved for a number of years in the cultural life of the Islands, as fanzine publishing editors, for Orín Desteñido, and for literary and music magazines, for Baile del Sol. The objectives of this association were retained throughout the years and Baile del Sol remains true to these to this day. On the one hand, we offer the chance to become published to new authors and, on the other, an increased effort so as local authors from the Canary Islands be considered for themselves and not because of their geographic origins. Our catalogue is additionally open to authors from other backgrounds. America, Oceania, Africa and Europe are all represented. We are, therefore, an open-minded and independent publishing house.

The Network of Colombian Independent Publishers, Red de Editoriales Independientes Colombianas (REIC), was created to respond to the concerns of a group of publishers eager to strengthen independent publishing in Colombia. The Ministry of Culture and CERLALC (Regional Center for the Development of the Book in Latin America) have demonstrated a clear commitment to national independent publishing by joining efforts to support the creation of the Network of Colombian Independent Publishers. This initiative initially brought together some 30 publishing houses, rallied around the notion of bibliodiversity and the need to sensitize the country to the fact that independent publishers exist, allowing Colombian writers, and others, to express themselves. Since its creation, the REIC has ensured that independent publishers receive state support to promote the allocation of public libraries, to encourage fairer commercial conditions, etc. Colombian independent publishers, unlike major publishing groups, have shown that they are active advocates for Colombian authors, and that they are major players in bibliodiversity. On April 28, 2008, the REIC was established as a legal entity headquartered in Bogota, and in association with independent Latin American collectives. Through the Spanish-speaking network of the International Alliance of independent publishers (AIEI), the REIC contributes to the Ibero-American regional editorial integration.

Here, an interview of Gustavo Mauricio García, president of the REIC, directed by the CERLALC, September 2018.
