Simon & Schuster’s been engaged in a long revamping of its Web presence. After relaunching simonandschuster.com last year, the company announced to also refurbish its trade resource site. Today, that project is completed with the launch of simonandschuster.biz.
The new site utilizes the same clean, organized front end as the relaunched consumer site, featuring a carousel at the top. It also contains the same book detail and author pages as the consumer site. But there are also a ton of useful media resources that could make it so you never have to call an S&S publicist again, including press releases, jacket art, and imprint-specific pages. The site also helps S&S authors partner and link their own promotions to the S&S mother ship.
Our favorite feature, of course, is the ability to request eGalleys of S&S titles, presumably by contacting the publicist on the book detail page of a particular book.
