5 Top Publishing News Stories of the Week, 11/26-11/30

Every week we recommend 5 links to publishing news that the young professional should read to feel more informed and connected to what’s going on in the industry. There are only 5, so even if you weren’t able to read a thing all week, these should help keep you in the know.

 

 

Simon & Schuster announced the creation of Archway, their own self-publishing unit–to mixed reviews.

Amazon Publishing will be hopping across the pond–the company announced the launch of a European division.

McGraw Hill Education will be acquired by private equity firm Apollo for approximately $2.5 billion.

Random House, not be to left out, noted their plans to launch three new digital-only imprints.

We all know it’s true, but now the authorities have spoken: Publishers Weekly names E.L James “Publishing Person of the Year.”
