NEWS: Avalon Travel Publishing to Merge with Perseus

NEWS

Perseus Books Group is planning to take on our travel guide publisher Avalon Travel Publishing. Here's part of the press release they sent us:

"Perseus and Avalon share a similar history, both being built through a series of acquisitions and having strengths in general fiction and non-fiction, and the wellness category. Avalon is also the largest independent travel publisher based in the U.S., with the Moon and Rick Steves series of travel guides."

Because Jason and I have a contract with Avalon which calls for us to revise our guidebook Moon Pennsylvania Camping for redistribution every three years, we're watching this closely to see what happens.
