Guadalajara International Book Fair: Invitation to Dr. Charles W. Swan

Dearest Charles,


Guadalajara International Book Fair official Website:

Event Location: 1499 Mariano Otero Ave., Colonia Verde Valle, Guadalajara, Jalisco

I am sending you this email as your invitation for the World’s Grand Book Fair in November. We are looking for published books with good quality that we can proudly represent and showcase to the media in the world’s biggest book fair this coming November. Well, our book critiques and in- house literary book scouts have reviewed and read your material The World As He Sees It” and have it forwarded to me. Which means, that your books must be something and with good quality and congratulations for that! Job well done. Thereupon, LitFire is inviting you to be one of the authors whom we will represent in the Guadalajara International Book Fair in Mexico. Have you heard about it?

Every year in November, the largest gathering of the publishing industry takes place in Guadalajara, MX. We will not just be selling your book there but the book rights/ license which will be participated with over 100 countries worldwide and over 7000 number of exhibitors. This event only happens once a year. It is by far the world’s largest venue for trading rights and licenses and these activities make up the core business of the Guadalajara Book Fair participants.

Please do check this youtube video for your perusal:

AJC Decatur Book Festival Author Review (September Event):

The fair only happens once a year. One of the great benefits in joining a trade show is that it levels the playing field. From unknown to popular authors, everyone is equal at the trade show. Even new authors can get attention from influential people and decision-makers from big publishing houses. Biggest people in the book and movie industry are already there searching for new titles. All of them! That’s where you can potentially have your book published/acquired by a Traditional Publishing House.


The Guadalajara International Book Fair is the most important publishing gathering in Ibero-America. It is also an amazing cultural festival. Created 29 years ago by the University of Guadalajara, the Fair is aimed at professionals and the general public alike, a characteristic that sets it apart from other book fairs around the globe. With business as one of its main goals, it is also a cultural festival in which literature plays a major role including a program where authors from all continents and languages participate, and a forum for the academic discussion of the major issues of our time.

For nine days, people willingly stand in long lines to listen to their favorite authors, the book industry makes Guadalajara its beating heart and the whole city is filled with music, arts, cinema and theatre from the featured Guest of Honor which this year is The United Kingdom.

There will be also author’s book review which is one of the requirements to become a credible author. All authors should get reviews. The more reviews, the better. Feedback from professionals or reviewers with authority in the industry can raise awareness and boost sales. We will submit your manuscript or book to the biggest, most respected book reviewers in the business. This means that you are going to receive professionally written feedback that is based on objective evaluation from knowledgeable reviewers who actually read your book.

Please check this out as well. Just wanted to share this with you, a movie book trailer from one of the books that we have published and that will be in the event. We created this movie trailer since a Media company wanted to do a screenplay adaptation for this book. Enjoy and we can’t wait to represent your book. Please click on the link:
