Author Terry McMillan Leaves Longtime Publisher

Originally posted on Black America Web:

NEW YORK (AP) — Terry McMillan is ending a long-term relationship — with her publisher.

The author of such best-sellers as Waiting to Exhale and Disappearing Acts has left Viking after 25 years and signed with Crown Publishers for her next novel.

Crown announced Monday that McMillan’s next book will be called “I Almost Forgot About You,” the story of a woman “who shakes things up in her life.”

Viking issued a statement Monday saying that it had been unable to come to terms with the author and wishing her “every success” in the future.

McMillan isn’t leaving home entirely. Both Crown and Viking are part of Penguin Random House, although imprints within the company sometimes compete for authors.

Earlier this year, Viking lost another longtime star, T. Coraghessan Boyle, who joined Ecco.

Today is the day that we celebrate the man who changed history forever. Martin Luther King, Jr. saw injustice in the world and decided that he would not stay silent. He stood up for his people, his country, and for his God. He gave up his comfortability and convenience for the challenge of leading others. He understood that a better future could be achieved and made it his goal to see it happen. He did not let fear stop him because he knew that “God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control” (2 Timothy 1:7). He was a man of honor, courage, and faith.

“I come to say to you this afternoon, however difficult the moment, however frustrating the hour, it will not be long… How long? Not long, because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” - MLK’s ‘Our…
