The Friday Project

It seems as though The Friday Project — a new­ish, small pub­lish­er bent on pub­lish­ing blog- and web-related con­tent — has been picked up by HarperCollins, end­ing some (yes, fever­ish) spec­u­la­tion.

HC [HarperCollins] bought TFP’s web­site, name and author con­tracts for an undis­closed sum from admin­is­trat­or Panos Eliades, Franklin and Company. TFP will be housed in the Press Books wing of HC, with pub­lish­ing dir­ect­or Clare Christian, pub­lish­er Scott Pack and man­aging edit­or Heather Smith report­ing to Press Books m.d. John Bond.

A few months back, Scott Pack expressed an interest in pick­ing up Deja Vu. It didn’t come to much — best all round, I think — but TFP seems like a genu­ine out­fit. I hope the man­age­ment finds suc­cess under the HarperCollins aus­pice.

  1. It looks as if they’ve got a sweet deal: a sort of skunk works, away from the main HC office, a degree of autonomy, but with Murdoch cash to cush­ion them.

    There must be a catch.
