HarperCollins UK Signs Deal With Amazon
No one is willing to cop to the specifics, but The Bookseller reported this morning that the UK sub for NewsCorp's book publishing arm has inked a new contract with Amazon:
HarperCollins UK has concluded what its chief executive Charlie Redmayne described as “tough negotiations” with Amazon over new terms. ...
Redmayne would not be drawn on the nature of the deal, or if it was a return to full agency. He said: “I am confident that we secured the best deal that we could possibly have got: we negotiated hard and long to make sure that was the case. It’s the best deal we could have done.”
