Amazon Children’s Publishing will publish author Katie D. Anderson’s first YA novel Kiss & Make Up in October. Amazon’s Tim Ditlow acquired the worldwide rights to the book and the audio book in English from Cheryl Pientka at Jill Grinberg Literary Management.
The book is a “magical romantic comedy starring 16-year-old lip gloss addict and unlikely clairvoyant Emerson Taylor, who discovers during her first kiss that she is able to get glimpses of a guy’s past when his lips meet hers.” Warner Premiere will create a live-action digital series based on the novel.
The book will be available through Amazon which publishes eBooks and print editions of books from its publishing house. But don’t expect other retailers to sell the book, as Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million and Chapters Indigo have all boycotted the selling of Amazon print titles.
