One comment on “Penguin USA sues authors for non-delivery of manuscripts

  1. There’s a novel hidden away there amongst the possible back stories. Are Penguin USA desperate for cash? (Going to court is a risky way to try to fix that!) Or are several authors turning in junk because they haven’t motivated themselves to write what they’d promised?
    The trouble is that authors won’t know the true stories, but will hear about the court cases: unforeseen consequences as you suggest.
    Apparently some of Beethoven’s best work was written at, or after, the last minute when he’d run out of contractual time and spent the advance, so who knows what the outcome here may be.
