What a Day!

Wow — what a crazy day in publishing. Others have already summed up better than I, but in brief, the day after Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s publisher abruptly quit (and the week after their strange announcement of an acquisitions freeze), GalleyCat reports “a lot” of other firings in house. But that’s not all. Simon & Schuster eliminates over 35 positions, and Random House reorganizes their imprints, with some top names leaving the company.
Shock waves are bouncing around the industry. So let’s try to think about some happy thoughts, shall we? Like this interesting article on avatars, like your Facebook, Twitter, or MySpace profile picture. What does yours say about you? Mine hopefully says I’m a little off-kilter with a sense of humor and a bright personality.
