Back in July of last year, an anonymous source asked me what was up with the scheduled collaboration between Janet Evanovich and Stephen J. Cannell. Anonymous loved the sample chapter, and then, it disappeared. Later sources emailed me to confirm that the partnership was off, as the book had been canceled.
Today’s New York Post reveals that not only is there “no possibility of Stephen Canell [sic] and Janet Evanovich ever collaborating on a series of adventure novels,” but that the “fallout may have caused a rupture in the relationship between Evanovich and her longtime agent Robert Gottlieb at Trident Media.” Yeouch.
Publisher’s Lunch Deluxe confirms the report, stating that “creative differences” were the cause of the cancellation of the novel.
