Do I have a case worth pursuing against my publisher? In 2008 I signed a contract for a novel I'd written with a publisher, indicating quarterly payments for sales, as well as royalty statements. It's been 2 years, and I have yet to receive a payment or statement. I contacted them last year and my contact (Kim) said they'd be issuing the statement by January 30th (2010). It never happened, and then in June I contacted her again and she said I "just reached payout" and they'd be doing the checks between August 1th and the 15th. Still nothing. Now I don't think I sold that many books because their advertising was poor (maybe 50 copies), but could I take them to law, and if so, what for? Breach of Contract? Something bigger?
