Amazon announced six more new titles to be published this summer under their AmazonEncore imprint. The six books will be published in print and Kindle editions. I have stated here before that while Amazon may at times give us reason to question their influence on the publishing industry and dominance and tactics as a retailer, AmazonEncore has proved to a tremendous PR success for them and a worthy channel for the lesser known voices in fiction. This batch of six soon-to-be published titles and one just-published title are particularly eclectic.
I am particularly delighted to see Christopher Herz getting well-deserved attention and this wider opportunity. Last year we ran one of our Self-Publishing Success features on Herz and Canal Publishing, the self-publishing imprint he used to publish The Last Block in Harlem.
