Breaking news: Crown parts knocked down, moved around, and put back up

It is a study in corporate intrigue, full of egos, strivers, and just plain desperation, to see what happens when these big corporate publishers "restructure." Breaking news is Crown Publishing Group's restructure.

Here's the breakdown - try to follow it, if you can!! It's all smoke and mirrors, it seems.

As usual, we here at SotB just hope that our colleagues in the company manage to hold onto their jobs or get good packages, if they are forced to look elsewhere for work. (The only folks leaving as mentioned here are Diane Salvatore, former VP and publisher for Broadway, and Broadway Senior Editor Lorraine Glennon.)

I can't imagine what authors published by this complex monster must feel.
