Amazon Publishing’s New York adult group has struck an e-book distribution deal with Ingram to distribute e-book editions of its titles to other e-bookstores through Ingram’s CoreSource. “We welcome Amazon Publishing’s New York adult group to the growing list of publishers who use our service,” said Phil Ollila, chief content officer at Ingram.
The inability to have access to e-books that Amazon sold exclusively through the Kindle store was the primary reason Barnes & Noble had said it would not carry Amazon Publishing titles in its stores. B&N has not responded to requests for comment on whether the new deal will result in the chain stocking Amazon titles which are being sold to the trade under the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt New Harvest imprint. The Ingram deal is limited to titles signed by the New York adult group and excludes books published by its genre imprints based in Seattle.
News of the agreement between Ingram and Amazon was first reported by paidContent.
