HarperCollins Plans Digital Original Mystery Line, Witness — Publishers Weekly
Two years after HarperCollins’ Avon Books imprint launched the digital romance imprint Impulse, its William Morrow imprint announced plans for Witness, a “digital-original” mystery, suspense and thriller line.
Over a hundred titles have signed for Witness and ten of them will appear this October.
Witness will feature the same royalty structure as Morrow/Avon’s other digital-first imprints: authors receive a 50% royalty once their book sells 10,000 copies (initial royalties start at 25%).
Agatha Christie’s short stories will be digitized and included, as well.
