Amazon Publishing was founded in 2009 and since day one, our goal has been to make authors happy, connect writers with a global audience, and innovate on behalf of authors and readers.

In our first two years, we launched five imprints, including Montlake, Thomas & Mercer, and 47North, as well as our literature in translation imprint, Amazon Crossing. In 2014, Montlake author Catherine Bybee became our first author to reach more than one million readers. That same year, Little A author Shawn Vestal won the PEN/Bingham Prize for debut fiction for Godforsaken Idaho. In 2015, Two Lions author Anna Kang and illustrator Christopher Weyant won the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award for You Are (Not) Small, and Amazon Crossing was named the largest publisher of translated fiction in the United States. Little A author Viet Dinh was recognized as a finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award for After Disasters in 2017. A year later, 47North author Meg Elison’s The Book of Etta was a finalist for the Philip K. Dick Award.

Today, nearly ten years since founding Amazon Publishing, we are a leading publisher of commercial and literary fiction, nonfiction, and children’s books. We’ve grown to sixteen imprints, expanded to nine offices around the world, and helped thirty-six authors (and counting) reach more than one million readers.
