Barnes & Noble.com Realigns

Important article for those who sell their books on Barnes & Noble.  Will be interesting to see what sort of changes this brings about.  Personally, I'd love them to set up a program similar to Amazon's Advantage program to make it much easier for small press/self-publishers to sell through B&N.com.

A spokesperson for Barnes & Noble confirmed a number of reports that there were some changes last week at Barnes & Noble.com, although she couldn’t provide many details. “We did have some organizational changes [last] week that were part of a realignment at BN.com,” spokeperson Mary Ellen Keating said in an e-mail. “We did eliminate a handful of jobs, while adding more in other areas.....in fact the organization is growing. The action was really more about making sure we have the right skills and talent in place for an ambitious year ahead.”
