Simon & Schuster and Barnes & Noble Mend Fences

Simon and Schuster Announces Truce with Barnes and Noble_peoplewhowrite

Eight months after Barnes and Noble reduced orders of Simon and Schuster titles because the bookseller felt the publisher was not supporting their bookstores, a truce has been called. In an email sent August 19th to Simon and Schuster authors and their agents, CEO Carolyn Reidy announced that the two entities “have resolved their outstanding business issues.”

She added, “While my greatest preference would be that the events of recent months had not happened, we are all pleased that once again we can focus entirely on…bringing your books to readers everywhere.”
