Amazon new publishing imprint

Amazon are to launch another new publishing imprint, the fifth imprint from Amazon Publishing, focused on mysteries and thrillers. The imprint called Thomas and Mercher and already they are making publishing news after author, Barry Eisler's decision this week, a month after rejecting a $500,000 offer from St. Martin's in favor of self-publishing his work, signed to bring out his new RAIN novel through Amazon's new imprint. 

Thriller writer Barry Eisler, who turned his back on a two-book deal for half a million dollars from St Martin’s Press, has decided to accept six figures from Amazon and become one of its first frontlist authors.

Indie authors are up in arms claiming that Eisler's done a U-turn on everything he's preached about self publishing, some are even calling him a hypocrite  - check out this story on A Writer's Life
