Amazon Purchases Avalon

How the publishing world continues to evolve! This week came the news that Amazon purchased 62-year-old publishing house Avalon Books. Avalon published hard cover sweet romances and mysteries, mostly to libraries. Here's a link to an article in Forbes regarding Amazon's purchase of over 3,000 Avalon titles. That's interesting news to those of us authors whose works are numbered among those 3,000-plus works!

My first book, RUMOR HAS IT, was published by Avalon Books back in 1997. Like other Avalon authors, I'm looking forward to hearing from Amazon and hoping the book gets released in ebook version. This was a sweet and humorous romance set around Christmas in Vermont. I'd love to see this baby get a whole new audience of readers!
