Sourcebooks Buys Cumberland House, Lays Off 14

Publishers Weekly reported earlier today that Sourcebooks has acquired 90 titles (or so) from Nashville-based Cumberland House, which will become a Sourcebooks imprint.

It will no longer be Nashville-based, though, and the seventeen-person office there will be closed. Three Cumberland employees are joining Sourcebooks -- founder Ron Pitkin, sales director Chris Bauerle, and editor Paul Mikros. The other employees aren't mentioned, which presumably means Pitkin, or Sourcebooks, is letting them go.
