Paul Crichton Promoted to VP, Director of Publicity at S&S Children’s Publishing Division

Today Simon & Schuster named Paul Crichton vice president, director of publicity for the  Children’s Publishing Division.

Crichton joined the division in 2006, handling campaigns for authors ranging from Sarah Ferguson (Duchess of York) to Lynne Cheney. In a memo about the promotion, Children’s Publishing Division publisher Jon Anderson praised Crichton and his team for 179 New York Times bestsellers, seven New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Books, four National Book Award nominees, and a Newbery Medal winner.

Anderson explained: “the week Paul arrived at Simon & Schuster the Children’s Division had no titles on The New York Times bestseller list, a drought that lasted three months until Scott Westerfeld’s Specials landed on the Paperback list. Since then, there has been only one week that we have not been represented (I’m guessing Paul was on vacation).  Coincidence?  I think not.”

Glenn Beck Unveils His Upcoming Novel

0511book.jpgOver the last few years, conservative host Glenn Beck has emerged as a publishing star. This summer, he’ll test the waters with an adult novel published by Threshold Editions–the Simon & Schuster imprint publishing Lynne Cheney and Karl Rove.

Entitled The Overton Window, the novel will be released in June 15. Through pre-orders, the title is already rising up the Amazon rankings.

At an Orlando rally led by Beck, Philly.com gleaned this novel intelligence: “[Beck] described [the novel] as ‘a story of America in a time much like today where the people are confused,’ with a government in crisis and the rise of a citizens’ group called the Founders Keepers, which ‘leads to a battle and a civil war, and life is upside-down planetwide.’” (Via Gawker)

After the jump, watch a clip where Beck explains the Overton Window–the political theory behind his new novel.
