Amazon Publishing is launching a new imprint, called Little A, that will publish literary fiction — novels and collections of stories — and memoir.

Little A joins Amazon’s six other imprints, which focus on genres like romance and science fiction. Until now, literary fiction had been published under the general Amazon Publishing division in New York, and Little A will be part of that division. It will be overseen by senior editor Ed Park.

Movie star and author James Franco has inked a book deal to publish his debut poetry collection with Graywolf Press. Publication is set for April of 2014. In an interview with MTV News, Franco said was pondering  “the idea of L.A. as a place where people’s dreams can come true, but also L.A. as a place that eats its young.”

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and Amazon.com Inc. today announced a new licensing agreement between Amazon Publishing's East Coast Group and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt's newly named New Harvest imprint. New Harvest will now publish all of Amazon Publishing's New York-based imprint's adult titles in print and distribute them in North America outside of the Amazon.com platform.
