New book contract


Life is strange. A week ago, as happy as the small publisher who accepted my latest book, I fell down Glastonbury Tor. Three days later, the publisher cancelled the contract without explanation and a refusal to engage.

This sudden 180 degree turn-about irritated well connected friends, who suspected plagiarism. A top lawyer friend advised me to log to incident, which I did with the police, withholding names to protect those involved, until and if they act illegally. To my surprise, I was handed on to the Fraud Squad who took the incident seriously, but I held back, other than sending a warning letter, also logged, to the publisher.

Out of the blue, the next day the book was contracted by a major publisher, who has already registered the manuscript and given it several ISNB numbers to protect it.

What a roller coaster!
