I came across this interesting article by Arthur Klebanoff concerning Linda's books and details about their publishing. Here is the link:

I figured they would be in the list of people.

You would THINK so... however, that has not always been the case

Didn't her children regain the publishing rights? If so, they should be able to block this or be paid.

Wow, I'm going to read this article in detail later! Awesome!!!
I remember ordering "Love Signs" as a kid from the "Current" book catalog. LOL!!!
And it's really TOO BAD her finances/estate, etc. were such a MESS.
Both of my parents had VERY clear wills, a fact for which I am eternally grateful!
It's got to be hard on her heirs.

Hey Randall!
Reading this about Linda playing one publisher against another (and the same with people) for money which is unethical to say the least makes me TOTALLY wonder--ought I to be taking financial advice from her?!
LOL!!!
OR, maybe her $$$ difficulties make her uniquely qualified to advise!
(I still have trouble separating people's work from who they really are.)
Oh, well, I know giving is a good idea, regardless!

Having publishers bid for you is just good business. She spent her fortune on trying to find her daughter.

I realize there is a LOT of "glamorizing" of LL that goes on here, but what she spent the $$$ on is no excuse!!!
At least MOST of her creditors were paid back.
She was human, as we all are.

She gave away a lot of her money.

Thanks, Randall!
I, myself, am still learning to master $$$. (I have the feast & famine thing, probably because I'm self-employed.)
It'll be very interesting to see how LG's estate plays out. I did not experience this with my parents, but I think that if the will/estate is messed up, it somehow makes it all worse, for the heirs. It's got to make the grief...worse.
And LG had SO MUCH loss--"Thunderbolt Path," indeed! I'm mature enough now to know we all have our difficulties.
LG did so MUCH good, for so MANY people...including me! It's a paradox if she couldn't find much peace for herself.

Although she helped millions, it is always hardest to help yourself.

O.M.G. Randall, you are SO right!!!
(And how irritating is THAT?! LOL!!!)
That is SO true for me, too.
They always taught us in college to NOT want to meet our favorite authors, because they are NEVER how you hope they'll be, and it's ALWAYS disappointing. LOL.
I am a HUGE Elizabeth Taylor/Richard Burton fan (she's my fave icon) and this reminds me of something his daughter, the actress Kate Burton, said about him. "He gave a lot of pleasure to a lot of people, but couldn't find any for himself."
Thanks for the perspective, Randall!
