Stacy Creamer, the publisher of Simon & Schuster’s Touchstone imprint, will leave the company on November 15th.
In a memo to staff, Scribner Publishing Group president Susan Moldow said she will work as Touchstone publisher “until further notice.” Here’s an excerpt from the memo:
Under Stacy, Touchstone has enjoyed ongoing success with Philippa Gregory, whose star as a first-class purveyor of historical fiction shines brighter than ever; relentlessly pushed Kathleen Grissom’s THE KITCHEN HOUSE, the proverbial little-book-that-could that has gone from an initial print run of 12,000 copies to more than 700,000 copies in combined print/electronic circulation; and extended Bethenny Frankel’s SKINNYGIRL franchise in new directions, including fiction.
