[publishing] A bit more on Amazon and Macmillan, and a temporary hiatus on my part

A new letter from Macmillan USA CEO John Sargent — Ebooks, royalties, and Amazon. Some very interesting reading between the lines there.

Hachette Book Group to Transition to Agency Model — Another leap into the fray. From Galleycat.

I'm back into chemotherapy in the morning, through Sunday afternoon, so I'll be silent on Amazon and Macmillan until Monday. My brain is very strange on chemo, and I'd prefer to wait until I can trust my thinking again before entering into this complex, difficult topic.

So for now, talk amongst yourselves.
