Amazon has created its own literary fiction imprint called Little A. Designer Chip Kidd created the logos for this new corner of Amazon Publishing.
The new imprint will focus on novels, memoirs and story collections. It will include books by James Franco, A.L. Kennedy and Jenny Davidson. The publisher will also open a digital-only series that will be part of the larger imprint. Check it out:
Day One is a digital-only series within Little A that is focused on short stories from debut writers and is available in North America and in the U.K. The first title, Kodi Scheer’s, haunting, fabulist “When a Camel Breaks Your Heart” was released on February 5, 2013. On March 19, Day One will release “Monster” by McSweeney’s contributor Bridget Clerkin, in which a woman struggles to keep her dysfunctional family
together amid unsettling events–the family dog goes missing and an unidentified, mysterious animal corpse washes up on the beach.
