Random House Disputes Wylie Amazon eBook Deal


Random House is not happy about the Wylie Agency’s exclusive eBook deal with Amazon that was announced this morning.

The publisher released the following statement from spokesman Stuart Applebaum: “We are disappointed by Mr. Wylie’s actions, which we dispute. Last night, we sent a letter to Amazon disputing their rights to legally sell these titles, which are subject to active Random House publishing agreements. Upon assessing our business options, we will be taking appropriate action.”

Under the terms of Wylie’s agreement with Amazon, Amazon will have the exclusive 20 eBooks through the literary agency’s brand new Odyssey Editions imprint.
