  • 10:29 <sarcasm>Very nicely done, Amazon. You have clearly trounced those knaves at Macmillan.</sarcasm> #
  • 10:29 RT @scalzi: One last Amazon/Macmillan post to pimp: All The Many Ways Amazon So Very Failed the Weekend: bit.ly/bUN03H #
  • 10:41 It’d be nice if Amazon actually added back those buy buttons, rather than whining about Macmillan’s "monopoly." #
  • 11:16 RT @arcaedia: Blog post on the Amazon / Macmillan weekend theatre bit.ly/a6HkHc #
  • 11:20 @LucienneDiver Agreed! I find myself hoping at least some of those customers never go back to Amazon. #
  • 11:25 RT @RachelleGardner: I posted on the Publishing Smackdown today. Stop by and leave your thoughts! is.gd/7skPe #
  • 11:58 Reading comments re: eBooks on blogs makes me realize just how little people really understand about how publishing works. #
  • 12:02 Not having to pay a printer does not suddenly make it cost next to nothing to produce a book! #
  • 14:00 It’s mid-afternoon and Macmillan books are apparently still missing from Amazon. #
  • 14:07 Also missing is any statement from Amazon that might have been written by actual professionals. #
  • 14:08 Of course, the entire Amazon PR department might have resigned en masse when they showed up and saw how the weekend went. #
  • 14:41 RT @sarahw: John Sargent is meeting with Amazon this afternoon, and Macmillan is "optimistic" links return by Tues AM: is.gd/7uFWc #
  • 15:24 @RachelleGardner You say outdated tradition, I say tomato. #
  • 16:02 A new PW article with more on the current status of the Google Books Settlement: is.gd/7vev8 #gbs #
  • 16:03 Seriously. RT @kate_mckean: Do not beg me to read your work. #unprofessional #pubtip #nomeansno #
  • 16:06 RT @dianagill: Most people aren’t meant to be successful writers. It takes time, effort, talent, luck, and many intangibles. #harshbuttrue #
  • 16:50 RT @arcaedia: On my agent blog – some more author perspective – Mercedes Lackey comments on my Amazon/Macmillan post bit.ly/a6HkHc #
  • 19:57 @RachelleGardner That’s…umm….wow. #
  • 20:24 RT @booksquare: Agency, Pricing and the Seven Things Publishers Need to Remember from @kobo ow.ly/12MCy #
