Bloomsbury authors not happy

Harry Potter publisher Bloomsbury has some unhappy authors.

Bloomsbury authors revolt over Harry Potter – Telegraph reports:

‘They treat you with complete disregard and I know of four other writers who are very discontented.'”

Joanna Trollope has moved to Transworld, and the publisher has paid vast sums for celebrity “books” – viz “Gary Barlow, the singer with boy band Take That, received a £1 million advance for his autobiography, while the young boxer, Amir Khan, was said to have received £400,000 for his memoirs.”
