Regan Books Offices to Close

Jan 18 2007

Effective March 1, HarperCollins is closing its Regan Books office in Los Angeles.
"We feel our authors will be best served by being integrated into HarperCollins," Michael Morrison, president and group publisher Harper/Morrow, said in a statement.

Harper Collins has announced that it will not publish the controversial book about Mickey Mantle, described as "an inventive memoir", that was scheduled for release by the now defunct Regan Books imprint.

Judith Regan, former publisher of Regan Books, the HarperCollins imprint responsible for a number of controversial but highly profitable titles such as three books about Scott Peterson, was dismissed shortly before Christmas following the furor over the planned memoir by O.J. Simpson, If I Did It, which was canceled shortly before release due to public outrage, with all copies destroyed.
