  • 10:00 Yesterday I ended up taking a reading afternoon due to plague. Did I miss anything happening in the publishing world? I’m guessing no. #
  • 10:01 I mean other than the usual Amazon/Macmillan stuff and Sargent’s letter about the oh-so-generous 25% net eBook rate. #
  • 10:02 RT @PublishersWkly: John Sargent’s 2/4/10 Letter to Authors, Agents bit.ly/ch2hkW #
  • 10:03 Oh, and of course Hachette’s plans to transition over to the agency model for eBooks. #
  • 10:11 @KatelynnLacopo I’ve seen USA Today bestselling authors pull that one, apparently on the assumption that everyone should know who they are. #
  • 11:38 RT @PublishersWkly: Hachette Moves to Agency Model bit.ly/d8NVmy #
  • 12:35 @jennybent A PL article on 1/19 said at least one house claimed the net would be calculated pre-commission. That’d better be true. #
  • 12:52 Thanks for the #FollowFriday mentions, @Niyrak @LianaBrooks @CorrinaLawson @ketadiablo @reginaldstjohn #FF #
  • 13:00 RT @GalleyCat New Site Monitors a Book’s Buy Buttons on Amazon – tinyurl.com/y85qak3 #
  • 14:03 RT @scalzi: In today’s episode of When the Clueless Share Jackassed Ideas: bit.ly/citjgR #AmazonFail #
  • 14:20 Wise words about writing advice from @chrisfholm: is.gd/7M8yP #
  • 15:26 Good stuff! RT @tobiasbuckell: Please consider reading my reader and price oriented case for ebook price ranging: tr.im/MZrc #
  • 15:54 @elanaroth #argh is a very good tag for that! #
  • 15:59 @chrisfholm See, but it takes wisdom to know when to say something like that. #
  • 22:57 RT @PublishersWkly: Macmillan Buttons on the Way Back: Amazon starts restoring buy buttons to Macmillan titles. bit.ly/cD6jZw #
  • 22:58 It’s about time Amazon. #
  • 23:25 @markos Plan being proposed by Macmillan has $14.99 as price for some newly released eBooks, but it’ll drop over time to as low as $5.99. #
