Publish America Threatens to Sue J.K. Rowling

GalleyCat is reporting that, due to comments made by author J.K. Rowling, Publish America is threatening to sue the British writer:

“Publish America attorney Victor Cretella wrote a two page letter to J.K. Rowling‘s legal team, threatening to sue the author for circulating “a false and defamatory statement to the media.”

Earlier this week, Publish America offered to deliver customers’ books to Rowling’s home for $49. The offer has since been removed, but here’s a cached copy of the other from Google (via). The author’s spokesperson told the AP that Rowling would seek “appropriate action.” Cretella responded by attacking the statement, apparently attributing a passage from the AP article to Rowling’s camp.”
