Janet Tracy Landman commented on the blog post 'I Got Out of Writing Shape! My Plan To Kick My Own Butt.'
"How is it that She Writes so often reads my mind?! I got derailed in June, when my publisher backed out of the contract (3 months before the publication date) out of fears that my nonfiction book might draw lawsuits from someone mentioned (not…"

Hi Janet, did you post your message one the wall in History & Biography Writers? If not, try that. I'm so sorry to hear you're going through this. I would probably seek legal advice from someone who specializes in publishing issues. Perhaps you can post a general question about your situation on the Help Forum at http://www.shewrites.com/forum/topics/help-forum-1.Good luck!
