Publishers Marketplace reports that Crown has decided to cancel their plans to publish Melissa Dumas‘ LIVE TO TELL: My Life as Madonna’s Nanny, which had been pre-empted by Lindsey Moore in a major deal. The house simply says “it will not be publishing the memoir to be authored by Madonna’s former nanny, Melissa Dumas. The rights to the book have been released to the author, who is represented by Martin Literary Management.” Which, of course, leaves us to wonder why a) Crown keeps making book deals they have to cancel b) what really happened. A Crown spokeswoman had not as yet returned contact attempts.
