These terror loglines are from a publicist at a major NY house, who notes:

- The author who insisted his local bookstores were jealous of his success and hated him, and were booking him in at the time they expected the least traffic.
- The sports celebrity who was still in bed when I came by to pick him up for his noontime booksigning.
- The nervous and insecure Hollywood-type author who made us hire a pricey PR firm even though we had already booked all the national media and done all the work in-house.
