The new hire in San Francisco is former Simon & Schuster editor Jennifer Heddle. She previously worked with media tie-ins (among other things) at Pocket/Gallery Books. From the Suvudu annoucement:
“I vividly remember buying Heir to the Empire as soon as it was released and to now be a part of that tradition is both an exciting adventure and a serious responsibility,” says Heddle. “And since I’m also a lifelong comic book fan, I’m really getting to explore the best of both worlds.”
Heddle’s main duty will be overseeing the adult fiction program, which works with Del Rey and Dark Horse. These were previously the duties of Executive Editor Sue Rostoni, who retired earlier this year.
By the way… Heddle is on Twitter.

Now I just need to find a message board to pester Ms. Heddle with questions about the publishing calendar. =)
I wonder if she’ll join the Del Rey boys on the Facebook page.
I wonder if she likes smugglers.
I wonder if she likes Waru.
I wonder if she is prepared for the insanity.
I love the comments around here.
Good luck, Jennifer!
Personally I’m hoping she joins the EUC. Not just because it’s my port of call :D .
Great opportunity here for a new Club Jade series of questions entitled ‘I Wonder’
