The Year 2019 appears to be one of the busiest years for Patricia Cornwell. The prolific author who is famous for her bestselling mystery novels, Dr. Kay Scarpetta, has a long list of activities lined up for 2019. Adding to her list of activities is her recent deal with Amazon Publishing. Amazon is making strong plans to expand their original content in an attempt to boost their subscription rate.
Patricia Cornwell’s upcoming title, ‘Quantum’, which has a release date set for December 3, 2019 will be free for readers who are part of the Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited program.
However, every other interested reader who is not part of the program will have to pay $9.99 (or £7.99 in the UK)—this is the exact cost for subscribing to the Kindle Unlimited program. This is similar to how a TV subscriber can tune in and watch all favorite TV series. Kindle Unlimited program subscribers can read all recent release for free.

Quantum is the first installment in a new series by Patricia for Thomas & Mercer.
A sneak peek according to press release said,
“[Quantum] weaves military action, espionage, and space-age technology into the story of a young NASA test pilot/aerospace engineer, Captain Calli Chase, whose quest to uncover the secrets behind her fighter-pilot twin sister’s murder takes her to the highest echelons of power: from NASA’s Langley Research Center to the White House to Scotland Yard to INTERPOL headquarters in Lyon, France. And beyond.”
Thomas & Mercer is an imprint of Amazon Publishing.
Apart from ‘Quantum’, Thomas & Mercer also signed a deal with the author for an untitled book scheduled for release in 2020.
It is possible that the undisclosed book will be a follow-up to ‘Quantum’.

Cornwell’s agent and the United Talent Agency partner, Jeremy Barber has referred to the growing global presence of Amazon Publishing as ‘a significant shift within the publishing landscape’.
In 2015, Patricia signed a deal with HarperCollins for English rights to two of her books. She also has a publishing history with United States’ Penguin publishers and United Kingdom’s Little, Brown.
