And with the rise of self-publishing, giving the competition for content from authors a new dimension, publishers have intensified their efforts to woo new authors and retain old ones.

Amazon Publishing, the relatively new house owned and operated by the world's largest bookseller of the same name, is taking that last point to a whole new level.
