Black Tuesday

DD-logo.gifIt’s Black Tuesday at Doubleday, a gloomy reminder of the tough times ahead.

The news broke today that there will be 16 layoffs throughout Random House’s Doubleday division–cuts ranging from publicity to editorial.

In his article, Leon Neyfakh called 2008 a “painful year” for the publisher of Dan Brown’s uber-bestseller, Da Vinci Code. The NY Observer confirmed four of the cuts this afternoon.

Earlier this year, GalleyCat covered Doubleday’s launch party for the Spiegel & Grau house, capturing memories of a happier time for everyone in the industry.
