The Book Nook and DonnaInk Publications (sole proprietorship) has release Manuela Davidovic of Serbia and Italy from representation for irreconcilable differences.
By: The Book Nook / DonnaInk Publications
Ms. Quesinberry stated, 'Even after expressing to Ms. Davidovic that The Book Nook and DonnaInk Publications pre-LLC is filing Chapter Bankruptcy - she insists on continuing to remit threatening and harassing email. A sixty (60) to ninety (90) day Right to Cure was promoted; however, the Author's titles remain well under the two hundred and seventy (270) to three hundred and sixty-five (365) business day calendar of production from manuscript submission date. Her initial title, The Cornfield, was only one hundred and thirty-one (131) business days post-submission and presented in preliminary format for review for her to remit front matter and back matter (when production calendar could have been stayed until front and back matter were submitted as a submission is incomplete until all matter is remitted); also, to perform an initial review prior to higher-end editorial and proofreading to move toward a Galley pre-print production copy."
The Author failed to remit front and back matter and instead threatened defamation of character, slander, and potential bodily harm. The Book Nook / DonnaInk Publications as a sole proprietorship and start-up Publisher, requested attorney contact information to remit to the Bankruptcy Court but Ms. Davidovic refuses, "I don't want to tell you who my attorney is." And, then threatens to move against her Confidentiality Waiver and Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) to "Contact all businesses in Orlando and the United States to ruin you and your company."
Of course, under Bankruptcy law - Ms. Davidovic needs to provide attorney information to the court as a potential creditor; however, no money has exchanged hands and as a debut Author The Book Nook and/or DonnaInk Publications sole proprietorship provided a marketing platform and brand/image management thus far, which gained "some" recognition for the Author and her pre-release. No sales have taken place and the title and all other titles shared with the Publisher by the Author in hopes of representation were also provided marketing platform recognition. All titles were incompletely submitted and remained well under the production calendar that begins when all elements of production are submitted and no sooner. In an attempt to cure, the Author's response was, "I have to approve editorials and I will not because I want to sue." Therefore, a contract breach resulted along with other inherent Publisher policies, which went unfulfilled and the Publisher determined to terminate the author.
The Book Nook and/or DonnaInk Publications as a sole proprietorship formerly extended an Author agreement, which was written by an Author for Authors; then a secondary agreement featuring common publisher presentation. Both resulted in over promissory and little to no return-on-investment for the Publishing House. A Chapter Bankruptcy filing is forthcoming.
The Limited Liability Corporation developed afterward features three (3) to five (5) titles at the present time and will not be affected by the Bankruptcy proceeding.
