Executives at publishing powerhouse SIMON AND SCHUSTER are dismayed over Hillary Clinton's failure to turn in a completed manuscript for her book, due out in August, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
The senator of the Empire State has already received a $2.85 million cash advance on her memoirs, from a total deal valued at more than $8 million.
"We must be off to the printer next month, but the manuscript isn't in yet!" said one SIMON AND SCHUSTER source last week. "Advance sales are lagging. And there is no title. Without a title it's been difficult to market."
One top source says the situation has not reached a legal concern, rather it is being described as an "annoyance."
The former first lady signed the deal before the 9/11 terror attacks.
One Clinton intimate explains: "In all fairness, she has been preoccupied with serving New York during these challenging times... the writing is wonderful, touching, and will lift Hillary to a new level of respect."
