Amazon announced on Wednesday that it was expanding its three-year-old German publishing division with the launch of a new imprint.
According to Boersenblatt, Edition M will be a crime imprint for German-language detective novels and thrillers. The first five original titles will be released in July and August, and will include books by Hendrik Falkenberg, Bernadette Calonego, Ulrike Busch, Jan de Fries, and Leonie Haubrich.
"We are particularly pleased to present this new program, which is aimed at German-language crime and thriller readers, "says Dominic Myers, Director Amazon Publishing Europe. "We are proud to present great writers – including newcomers as well as established authors – to a widee audience of avid readers.
The new books will be found on Amazon.de.
Amazon Publishing first entered the German book market in the summer of 2013 with the launch of a Kindle Single store, and then expanded into publishing original titles in 2014. Since then, Amazon Publishing has published more than 130 titles of German writers of various genres, including fantasy, contemporary and historical novels, thriller, and science fiction.
Amazon also recently expanded the Montlake romance imprint to include German-language titles.
