Amazon expanded on their publishing efforts today with the launch of a new imprint. Brilliance Publishing, the audiobook publisher that Amazon acquired in 2007, will take another step into print publishing with the launch of Waterfall Press.
This new imprint will specialize in faith-based non-fiction and fiction in a variety of genres. Waterfall Press non-fiction will aim to provide spiritual refreshment and inspiration to today's Christian reader, while fiction will include stories in the romance, mystery, and suspense genres.
Three titles have already been scheduled to be released in 2014, including Mark Buchanan's The Four Best Places to Live, Cherie Hill's When You Need a Miracle, and The Quiet Revolution by Jay Hein. Waterfall Press also has 3 shorter works scheduled for 2014.
Waterfall Press will be edited by Tammy Faxel under the auspices of Grand Harbor Press. Brilliance launched this publishing division in December 2012, and over the past 13 months it has published numerous self-help and inspirational titles in print, digital and audio formats.
Along with Jet City Comics, Day One (short literary fiction),and StoryFront (short fiction), Waterfall Press is the 4th new publishing imprint launched by Amazon in the past 6 months. It joins sister imprints 47North, AmazonCrossing, AmazonEncore, Amazon Publishing, Grand Harbor Press, Kindle Worlds, Lake Union, Little A, Montlake Romance, Skyscape, Thomas & Mercer, and Two Lions in the Amazon Publishing family.
