Today’s Episode: Why We Love Media Titles
A peculiar turn of events. A book has appeared on Amazon.com. It has a publication date. It even has cover art. What it does not have is an outline approved by the Licensor (an email from the client involved today said the last few kinks were in the process of being worked out). What it also lacks is a contract. That’s right. The publisher has listed a book that is not yet bought. There’s not even an offer on the table. (I’m rather hoping there will be one soon.) This industry is such an odd place to live.
