| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Scott Turow is putting out a sequel to his million-selling Presumed Innocent and leaving his longtime publisher, Farrar, Straus & Giroux.

Turow's next book, Innocent, will be released in May 2010 by Grand Central Publishing, a division of the Hachette Book Group (USA).

The author had spent the past two decades publishing hardcovers with Farrar, Straus & Giroux and paperbacks with Grand Central (formerly Warner Books).

Turow is the second major author within the past year and a half to leave FS&G for Hachette, the rare thriving publisher thanks in part to Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series.

In early 2008, Tom Wolfe ended a 40-year run at Farrar and announced he would publish his next novel, Back to Blood, with the Hachette division Little, Brown and Co.

As with Wolfe, sales had dropped for Turow's recent books, notably Ordinary Heroes.
