The imprint will release both fiction and nonfiction. Amazon Publishing is also the home of 47North, which centers on sci-fi, horror, and fantasy; Thomas & Mercer, which releases mysteries and thrillers; and AmazonEncore, which republishes older works, and others.

Books released under the WaterFall Press imprint will be published by Brilliance Publishing, which is part of Amazon.

“Waterfall Press non-fiction will aim to provide spiritual refreshment and inspiration to today’s Christian reader, while fiction will include stories in the romance, mystery, and suspense genres,” Amazon said in a press release.

As pointed out by NPR, Christian publishing is one of the most lucrative branches in the market today.

“It's a popular industry right now, especially among the evangelical line,” Win Bassett, a seminarian and writer at the Yale Divinity School, told NPR.
