Amazon has announced the acquisition of Avalon Books and the publication rights of Avalon's 3,000 backlist titles. Under the terms of agreement, Avalon books will be published under the West Coast imprints of Amazon Publishing and Avalon books will continue to be available in print for booksellers and libraries. None of Avalon's books have been digitized and Amazon will work to make these works available to Kindle customers.
Avalon was established in 1950 and primarily publishes romance, mystery, and western books. The terms of the sale were not disclosed.
