Dolan said:PA told me that they do not keep any records that would show any book sales, except for numbers on a piece of paper, just like the royalty statement that they sent me. Well gee, I guess they have the freedom to do that. They also said that I can not have an accountant examine my own records.
But I thought their contract says they keep "accurate" figures? Hmmm, is the peice of paper a dirty napkin by chance? Or is it the the cover page to Atlanta Nights? Maybe it's writen down in the bathroom on the wall next to Meiners home phone number. Cause you know, he would have to write it down somewhere he goes quite a bit or he might forget it. And I know if I had 30 cute little editors running around I might spend a lot of time in said bathroom.
Guess they would be in trouble if the author who wants to examine the books so happens to be an accountant. If you can't have one with you then why do they need the seven days before hands? Maybe they have to dig through the dirty napkins or get Meiners out of the bathroom in order to find out where your info is writen down at.
