Oprah to Feature Showdown Between Goldman and Brown Families Over If...

The Goldman’s were granted the rights to the OJ hypothetical confession and shopped it to Beaufort Books, a sometimes vanity press where authors contribute monetarily to the publication of their books. The Brown family is not happy about the publication of the book. Oprah has booked the two camps for a high charged Springer like episode. Fred and Kim Goldman will face criticism from Denise Brown on September 13, 2007.

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    My opinion may change as I learn more about the situation, but right now, I’m on the side of the Brown family. But I don’t think it’s so wise of them to go on Oprah, since I expect this showdown will only lead to higher sales of the book.
