Amazon looks to build full-fledged publishing house
Laurence Kirshbaum, the former CEO of Time Warner's book division and most recently the founder of a well-respected, 40-client literary agency, has been named publisher of Amazon's New York publishing office. The move follows the launch of Amazon's fifth imprint — this one for the mysteries and thrillers genre — last week, as well as the hiring of editors to man each of its imprints in recent months.
