Publishers to Casey Anthony:

HELL NO!!!!

10/25/2011 3:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Casey Anthony Sad
The NBC producer trying to score a book deal for Casey Anthony may be S.O.L. ... because the biggest names in the publishing biz tell TMZ ... they want absolutely NOTHING to do with tot mom.

We broke the story ... an NBC news producer has contacted literary agents and told them Casey has agreed to do a TV interview with the network if he can lock up a book deal.

But according to the three publishing powerhouses -- that ain't happening ... just check out the statements we received regarding a possible Casey Anthony publishing deal:

Simon and Schuster:  “We are 100% not interested.  We are NOT NOT NOT  interested. Simon & Schuster is not publishing, and has never intended to publish, any book by Casey Anthony, her family, or any member of her team.

Harper Collins: “We are planning on publishing the Prosecutor’s book who was involved in the Casey Anthony case, so we have no plans in releasing a Casey Anthony book.  We’re sticking with the prosecutor.”

Penguin Group:  "We have no plans on doing a book deal with Casey Anthony."

Another publisher went so far as to say, "Hell no ... it's blood money."

So, we gotta ask ...

Unlike NBC who seem to support baby killers? These so called powerhouses realize that it is the Public opinion that buys the books they are backing. Without "us" they make NO money.. NBC should heed their advice, and say Hell No, or they will be saying "Uh Oh", when they see and feel the backlash that will bite them on the ass if they back and promote anything from this lying, manipulative "it" Realize NBC what you stand to lose, you're already border line of losing many respectable viewers who have had ENOUGH of this tabloid journalism. A child was found dead, in pieces after being stuffed in a trash bag, and NBC is alright with that? Willing to lie to it's devoted viewers? NBC rethink your position...

What on earth does anyone think this killer is going to reveal in a book. It will just be more lies, nothing new. I don't blame the big publishing houses for saying no. It's just too much of a risk. Remember the O.J. debacle with his book.

How much can a publishing company expect to make on a book that will inevitably end up on the shelves at Dollar Tree and 99 Cents Only stores?

She will get a deal soon or later, someone will publish the book. NBC wants that interview bad, therefore they will convince someone to do the book by flashing a large amount of $$$$ and perhaps offer on the deal as a package a healthy bonus if the book doesn't to well to motivate the publisher to go for it.... Just wait and see...

Grow up and get professtional help, alright?
