Fox Developing Amazon Title for Series

9781612183954Juliette Lewis is set to co-star with Matt Dillon in a Fox series, Wayward Pines, directed by M. Night Shyamalan, to debut in the fall of 2014. Also in the cast are Melissa Leo, Toby Jones and Carla Guigino.

It is based on  Pines, by Blake Crouch, published under the Amazon mystery imprint, Thomas & Mercer (also in audio by Brilliance). It was a finalist for 2013 Thriller Awards‘ Best Paperback Original Novel. While described in news reports as a “best seller,” it did not appear on any lists we can identify; it may have appeared on Amazon sales rankings. It is not owned by libraries, according to WorldCat [Update: We stand corrected -- see comment below].

Crouch published several titles with imprints of Macmillan, before turning to self-publishing and then signing with Amazon’s Thomas & Mercer.

    I was fortunate to review this for Booklist and gave it a starred review. My library owns it and according to Worldcat, so do 415 other libraries.

    Thanks for the update, Stacy — don’t know how we missed the listings the first time around.
