I am trying to get the copyright page to print (or display) on the back of the title page. What is happening is that I get a blank page after the title page and then the copyright page opens on the right hand side. What I would like to do is eliminate the blank page immediately after the title page and have the copyright page print on the back of the title page.

I am using the memoir class (though Koma-script scrbook has the same behavior). Here is a minimum working example:

\documentclass[11pt]{memoir}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[spanish]{babel}
\usepackage{geometry}
\geometry{bottom=1in}
\usepackage{tgpagella}
\usepackage{lettrine}
\usepackage{microtype}
\begin{document}
\begin{titlingpage}
\begin{center}
\huge{Los picapiedras}

\vspace{1 in}
\bigskip
f.flinstone
\end{center}
\end{titlingpage}

\frontmatter
\textit{Picapiedras}
here is the copyright page

\mainmatter

\lettrine{Y}{o estaba alojado} en un hotel 

\end{document}

You could use a \clearpage inside the titlingpage environment to have a new page for the copyright information:

\begin{titlingpage}
\begin{center}
\huge{Los picapiedras}

\vspace{1in}
\bigskip
f.flinstone
\end{center}\clearpage
\textit{Picapiedras}
here is the copyright page
\end{titlingpage}

However, the memoir documentation suggests not using the titlingpage environment:

However, I suggest that you ignore the titlingpage environment and just use regular LaTeX typesetting without any special environment.

So, you can simply say something like:

\documentclass[11pt]{memoir}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[spanish]{babel}
\usepackage{geometry}
\geometry{bottom=1in}
\usepackage{tgpagella}
\usepackage{lettrine}
\usepackage{microtype}

\begin{document}

\pagestyle{empty}
\begin{center}
\huge{Los picapiedras}

\vspace{1in}
f.flinstone
\end{center}
\clearpage
\textit{Picapiedras}
here is the copyright page
\clearpage

\frontmatter

\pagestyle{plain}
\mainmatter

\lettrine{Y}{o estaba alojado} en un hotel 

\end{document}

You can locally stop \cleardoublepage making the blank page:

\documentclass[11pt]{memoir}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[spanish]{babel}
\usepackage{geometry}
\geometry{bottom=1in}
\usepackage{tgpagella}
\usepackage{lettrine}
\usepackage{microtype}
\begin{document}
\begin{titlingpage}
\let\cleardoublepage\clearpage
\begin{center}
\huge{Los picapiedras}

\vspace{1 in}
\bigskip
f.flinstone
\end{center}
\end{titlingpage}


\begin{titlingpage}
\textit{Picapiedras}
here is the copyright page
\end{titlingpage}

\frontmatter

\mainmatter

\lettrine{Y}{o estaba alojado} en un hotel 

\end{document}
