Jul 22 2014

The group of writers who signed an open letter earlier this month regarding the Amazon/Hachette dispute are now "developing a long-term strategy" under the banner Authors United, the Bookseller reported. The group includes Paul Auster, David Baldacci, Tracy Chevalier, Lee Child, Jeffery Deaver, Mark Haddon, Sophie Hannah, Stephen King, Barbara Kingsolver, James Patterson, Philip Pullman and Donna Tartt.

"This struggle with Amazon may go on for a while," Preston wrote. "Our group, which we call Authors United, is developing a long-term strategy in case our effort here is not effective. I will be in touch with you about that.
