Publishers’ Weekly Gives More Pink Slips

In sad news, Publishers Weekly is laying of 7% of the work force, keeping staff salary freezes in place and eyeing furlough days (unpaid forced leaves of absence). Part of the individuals cut include the managing editor of the PW website as well as the tech writer/web main and senior editor and contributor to the magazine.   Given that the print side of newspaper/magazine publishing isn’t doing so well, it’s curious that PW would choose to slash the web staff.

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

    I noticed that Barbara Vey hasn’t posted on her blog at PW all week – I hope this didn’t include her!
