Publishers to Casey Anthony:

HELL NO!!!!

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 ...

for the publishing companies to say that is bullcrap. wasn't there a book out on Amazon about a handbook for pedophiles. there are books out there for cannibals, how to make bombs...they aren't going to promote a baby killer??? when did publishing companies get a moral compass? they are in the business to make money, not to decide if something goes against their grain of thinking. i for one would like to see this girl's thought process...it's obviously flawed. if they would publish the book but then proceeds go to some children's charity, i think it would be good.

It's very amusing that publishers suddenly have morals... Sadly I would actually read this book as apposed to several of the other pieces of crap that get published... I personally don't care if she profits from a book. She will face her judgement and has to live every day of her life in fear.

Have people forgotten she was found not guilty?

As far as the book deal goes, all the time publishers publish books about death, murder, war, drug use, prison, rape, robbery..etc. And people buy them. So why are publishers suddenly having a case of morality? I wonder if those same publishers are going to axe the tell-all book that Lindsay Lohan's mother said she was going to write.

I doubt it.

If I were a publisher I would welcome a book about Casey Anthony. It would fly out the door and I would make a ton of money.

This woman killed her child and didn't have a care in the world afterwards. She's fortunate she's not on death row where she belongs. A book from a liar and murderer? Not interested and will boycott anyone who publishes her trash.

I'm really quite shocked at the people who believe in the justice system - when especially in the US, it has failed repeatedly... "innocent until proven guilty" - uh sure, just because you cant track down proper evidence doesn't mean she's innocent, but there are still people who maintain this as fact. Here's a tip, she lied... she defamed an innocent person by blaming her guilt on a non-existent "nanny". Ok i'll humour you though... say the child did drown in the pool, you don't go out partying, lying to everyone about your kid's whereabouts and have as much fun as possible. innocent people show remorse. period. she had no remorse, and the first time this disreputable trash even shed a tear over her daughter's death was via a photo of the kid's skull shown in court!

innocent my lily white ass!

what really happened?    

I am certain no publisher would have the kahoonas to sign her to a book deal. NO WAY. We need to remember what happened when OJ wrote his book. They pulled the book IMMEDIATELY due to outrage and boycotting. She i*****ed for the crime we all know she committed against an innocent child. She is a sociopath and needs to suffer as this poor baby did. So any publisher that decides to publish a book will soon learn the consequences of such a poor decision. Casey Anthony is a DONE DEAL not a book deal!

She may have been found innocent, but she claimed she knew the child drowned, poor little girl wound up rotting in the woods and Casey went out and partied. No respectable business or publisher wants to be a part of that.

I would like to know what NBC thinks Casey has to say.are they hopeing for a confession .Then what..would that be the jist of the Interview.The only thing the people want to hear about Casey Is reading her obituary In the Orlando Sentinel..she Is white trash that came from a trashey family.she's a common crimminal ..a thief a liar and a murderer..guess NBC hasn't had enough of the skank..the public has ..go on to something else ..

Though I am not in favor of her profiting from this madness I believe it is inevitable that a deal be made somehow. Don't think it will be for the major bucks though and the publisher is going to be taking a real risk if money is paid upfront and it bombs. If is it a profit share based on books sold then the eventual payout will be low as there will be disinterest as well as a bias against her since she never told the truth in the past, there will be no value to the reader. OJ's book never made anything but the prosecutors and defense in that case made out. I'll bet the prosecution and Baez et al make more than she ever sees.
