Penguin Finally Realizes It is Part of the 21st Century

Publisher’s Weekly reported that The Penguin Group, publisher of books by Nora Roberts, Jayne Ann Krentz, JR Ward, Nalini Singh and Meljean Brook, has finally created a digital director position and named someone to (wo)man it. Genevieve Shore is now the global digital director for Penguin worldwide. She reports to CEO John Makinson and is said to “dentify and facilitate new initiatives, partnerships and innovations around the business.”

She’s based out of London, having formerly beeing group sales director for Penguin in the UK. Ms. Shore, I’ve got some ideas for you. Like releasing the first three books to JR Ward’s BlackDagger Brotherhood series instead of the 3d book or releasing the new releases when the releases are still new and not months old like Nora Roberts’ Angel Falls. Let’s hope that Penguin’s digital program, starting with their sadly out of date ebook site, gets a facelift.

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com
