Second Response From Macmillan’s CEO

Macmillan CEO John Sargent has issued a second communication using Publishers Lunch today to update ‘Authors and Illustrators’ on discussions with Amazon over Macmillan’s new agency model for e-book pricing. It is now six days since buy buttons were removed from the publisher’s listings on Amazon, and while Sargent expresses his respect for the e-tailer, his hopes for a speedy resolution are certainly candid.

I cannot tell you when we will resume business as usual with Amazon, and needless to say I can promise nothing on the buy buttons. You can tell by the tone of this letter though that I feel the time is getting near to hand.”
