Penny Marshall has book deal with Amazon.com

Filmmaker-actress Penny Marshall has a book deal with a fresh twist: The publisher is Amazon.com.

The online retailer has been steadily expanding its publishing operations. Marshall's agent, Dan Strone, announced Tuesday that Amazon will release Marshall's memoir "My Mother Was Nuts" in Fall 2012. Marshall starred in the 1970s sitcom "Laverne and Shirley" and went on to direct such hits as "Big" and "A League of Their Own." According to Strone, Marshall will also write about her marriage to Rob Reiner, her friendship with John Belushi and her fight against lung and brain cancer in 2009.

Amazon recently signed a deal with best-selling self-help author Timothy Ferris. Rival booksellers, worried about helping a competitor, have expressed strong reservations about selling books released by Amazon.
