Threading #DOJvPRH tweets!

“A vast amount of this information isn’t public knowledge?”

Hill: “Yes, but the winner is always known!”
The one thing that’s clear is analysis of edit minutes cannot show the runner up. OK.
And neither big publisher has good data about the runners up. They may use “different language” as Hill says — but no one has enough data, basically.
“Let’s talk about imprint competition” YES PLS

Glusman says merger would be bad for midlist authors.
Why would someone go with Norton at a lower advance?
"Because we're fabulous!" says Glusman, who adds that he's "being quite facetious" about this. #DOJvPRH
"And a result of Norton's reputation in the industry. . . Nortons ometimes wins as the underbidder even when bidding against Big Five publishers?"

"Correct." #DOJvPRH

Judge Pan stops Walsh in her tracks by clarifying that hoping for bestsellers and expecting bestsellers are different, and the questions here are about expectations, NOT hopes. #DOJvPRH
Walsh says, in discussing the work publishers put into each book, says it’s not as if some authors get paper plates and others get fine China. #DOJvPRH
BUT THEN she tells us that different authors have different needs. Some authors, e.g., need first-class air travel

Do those flights use paper plates?

Eating my tuna sammie and wondering where Jennifer Rudolph Walsh is having lunch. . . Sushi Taro takeout? Limo to BLT Steak? #DOJvPRH
Just spoke with my lovely editor and I am definitely gathering the right stuff to file, even if not to tweet! I promise to BRING IT tomorrow through Monday, when PRH’s Madeline McIntosh takes the stand (and I will still be on the case!). #DOJvPRH
And we’re back! Jennifer Rudolph Walsh begins by talking about some of her big sales. . . Sue Monk Kidd, Jeannette Walls, “and all of Brené Brown.” #dojvprh

NB my grades in undergrad micro and macro were quite low. #DOJvPRH
