NEW YORK (AP) - Amazon.com is adding another high-profile name to its publishing roster.

The literary agent for spiritual doctor Deepak Chopra and his physician brother Sanjiv (Sun-JEEV) Chopra says Amazon will be the publisher for their memoir, “Brotherhood: A Tale of Faith, Big Dreams, and the Power of Persistence.”

Trident Media Group announced the deal Sunday.

Amazon has been steadily expanding its publishing operations. Last month, filmmaker-actress Penny Marshall signed a deal for her memoir. Amazon also has a deal with best-selling, self-help author Timothy Ferris and has started an imprint for science fiction, fantasy and horror.

Amazon won’t be Deepak Chopra’s only publisher. According to Random House Inc. spokesman Stuart Applebaum, Chopra is still under contract for several books. He also has his own imprint at Random House.
