Raincoast Pulls the Plug

Publishing news from the wet, west coast: Raincoast will cease to publish Canadian-written titles. Here's the scoop. I believe this is the second sweep they've had in the past few years. And didn't they just hire children's book editor, Tonya Martin, from the US not that long ago? She must be choked. What a shame. Harry Potter is "safe", not that he needs saving really, but I'm sorry for one less publisher creating books for Canadians by Canadians.

Me too. Do you know who the 20 that lost thier jobs are? I'm trying to track down Tonya, she was the best editor I had yet worked for.
