GalleyCat has this delightful bit of schadenfreude: HarperCollins is deleting the ReganBooks name and logo and will close the LA office on March 1.
OJ Simpson didn’t kill Judith Regan’s imprint — she did plenty to seal that coffin herself. But his imaginary confession “tell-all” didn’t help.
An interim logo, HC, will appear on Regan books through this summer, after which the list will be reassigned to existing Harper imprints.
“Publishers Marketplace adds that many LA staffers, including Cal Morgan, executive managing editor/senior editor Cassie Jones; marketing director Gregg Sullivan; and senior art director Richard Ljoenes will return to New York and join the Harper staff there. Suzanne Wickham will stay on in LA as publicity director.”
