Judge denies request for delay in Google case
Publishers Weekly
After eight years of legal wrangling in the Google Books case, Judge Chin now appears eager to move things along. In an order last week, Chin bluntly denied an Authors Guild request to delay upcoming oral arguments on the cross-motions for summary judgment. Arguments remain set for Sept. 23, but the deadline for the final round of reply briefs was extended to Sept. 16. The Authors Guild had asked for a two-week delay.

US judge wants external monitor for Apple in e-books case
Reuters
A U.S. judge weighing remedies to assure that Apple Inc does not fix prices again in the e-books market said she plans to require it to hire an external monitor, something the company considers unnecessary. But U.S. District Judge Denise Cote suggested a final injunction would be narrower than what the U.S. Department of Justice has been seeking, and would not restrict Apple's agreements with suppliers of other types of content such as movies, music and TV shows.

Amazon to begin bundling print and digital books, to the detriment of both
Melville House
Amazon has rolled out a new e-book bundling program, one which will, in true Amazon fashion, burn down the orchard to help them reach a few more apples. Amazon's MatchBook is designed to institutionalize e-book bundling, a retail tactic that, though a fan favorite, almost always undervalues e-books in price and, more importantly, in perceived value.

Retailers discount big-five best-sellers, keeping prices at all-time low
Digital Book World
Despite it being the No. 1 best-seller last week, retailers decided to push the envelope with Penguin Random House's The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty, discounting it to $6.50 from $9.99. The move is part of a pattern emerging this week at retailers of discounting front-list, top-selling e-books from the largest publishers. The increased discounting follows a week when the average price of a best-selling ebook hit an all-time low: $6.33.

Long odds for authors newly published
The New York Times
"The Cuckoo's Calling" became the publishing sensation of the summer when word leaked that its first-time author, Robert Galbraith, was none other than J.K. Rowling, the mega-best-selling creator of Harry Potter. Mystery solved? Maybe not. It's no surprise that "The Cuckoo's Calling," a detective story set in a London populated by supermodels and rock stars, shot to the top of best-seller lists once the identity of the author was revealed. But if the book is as good as critics are now saying it is, why didn’t it sell more copies before?

Picture book templates arrive for Kindle authors
The Book Designer
Although we've been able to wrangle Microsoft Word into producing great-looking print and e-books, authors have faced quite a challenge if they want to produce picture books for the Kindle and other e-readers. Taking all the experience gained this year from producing the 14 book templates available on the site — for fiction, nonfiction and children's books — Tracy R. Atkins has now managed to create a template that will make this possible with a minimum of fuss.
