Karthika VK Set To Launch A New Division For Amazon-Owned Westland Publishers


By Somak Ghoshal

Karthika VK, who stepped down as Publisher and Chief Editor at HarperCollins Publishers India (HCI) last October, is set to start a new publishing division for Westland Publishers, now wholly owned by Amazon, according to sources. The name of the division is not known yet, but it is likely to start publishing titles from the third-quarter of this year.

Amazon.com Inc. acquired the publishing business of Westland, a Trent Limited subsidiary and one of India’s major publishing houses, last October as well, after initially having bought 26% stakes in it.

Westland, which includes imprints like Tranquebar and EastWest, published best-selling authors like Amish Tripathi, Ashwin Sanghi, Rashmi Bansal, Rujuta Diwekar, Preeti Shenoy, Devdutt Pattanaik, Anuja Chauhan, Ravi Subramanian and BKS Iyengar. Read more
