Define "in bed with".
Amazon is the 800lb gorilla of book retailing. If Amazon contacts a publisher and says "We want to do an ebook version for the Kindle", it can be a bit hard for the publisher to say no. And Amazon has been very
aggressive about adding content, so you'll see stuff available from Amazon that isn't available elsewhere.
Is the fact that Sanderson's second Mistborn book turned up in Amazon first evidence that they are "in bed with Amazon"? I don't think so. If it were only
available on Amazon, you might make a case, but you can
get it elsewhere.
