Dean Koontz Signs New Five-Book Deal with Amazon Publishing

July 22, 2019

SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Amazon Publishing (NASDAQ: AMZN) today announced it has signed international best-selling author Dean Koontz for a five-book deal and a collection of six short thrillers. Thomas & Mercer will publish the first book, Devoted, next spring, and Nameless, the short thriller collection, will be available from Amazon Original Stories for free to Prime and Kindle Unlimited customers on November 12th.

“For many years, I have enjoyed a wonderful relationship with Brilliance Audio, an Amazon company, and later with Amazon Original Stories,” says Dean Koontz. “Although there were numerous options for the future, it was most natural to sign with the team at Amazon Publishing, which presented a marketing and publicity plan smarter and more ambitious than anything I’d ever seen before. This new arrangement is so exciting, I’ve been creatively rejuvenated. The times are changing, and it’s invigorating to be where change is understood and embraced.”

“We are honored Dean has chosen Amazon Publishing to bring his newest work to readers,” says Mikyla Bruder, Publisher of Amazon Publishing. “Building on the success of Dean’s Amazon Charts best-selling short story, Ricochet Joe, our first publication together, we’re excited to expand our relationship with five new books from Thomas & Mercer and an episodic collection of short thrillers from Amazon Original Stories, delivering the kind of exhilarating and deeply resonant suspense his millions of fans expect and we know new readers will love.”
