Author Wants To Be In Google Print, But Publisher Says No

Book author to her publishing company: your lawsuit is not helping me or my book post, where an author is upset that publisher Simon & Schuster refuses to put her book into Google Print. She wants the greater exposure and has even sent Google a letter of support. It highlights two key things for authors. First, that you may want the right to put your book into any print search engine as part of the deal. Second, as I wrote last year, that you receive some of the ad revenues if your publisher decides to put your book into Google Print or some other distribution mechanism.
