Another shoe is dropping in the industry this morning. Following last week’s earnings report, Publishers Lunch (subscription) is reporting that HarperCollins is closing the Collins division that had grown quickly under publisher Steve Ross, and folding the imprints into Morrow and HarperCollins. This also means, of course, layoffs.
Ugh. Really, really to sorry everyone over there who is affected.
UPDATE: Children’s imprint Bowen Press is closing as well. Ugh.
