I do have the same Poblem, BUT I think I found a workaround.
My Sim still can't delete WIP books or end books started over the freelance menu, but he just now finished a book (I tried him to write) over the normal writing menu. He could finish the book AND it got accepted by his customer (aka I finished the freelance job quest with it).
Just thought this might help all of us wo are struggling with this and the programmers to pinpoint the problem
Edit: Oh and for me the task to delete or continue an unfinished book just stays in the queue and the Sim does nothing. So the task blocks the entire queue until I kick it out manually
I have this issue too but first noticed it only after the Freelancer career patch. I have tried with and without mods to no avail and so far the workaround is not working for me - my sim will not scrap any books started or even sit at the computer, just stands around until another command is given or autonomy kicks in. When trying to scrap or resume books, the action queues but remains inactive and never 'drops', being then superseded by any autonomous actions and lingering until the sim is reset or the stuck action (resume or scrap) is manually cancelled. Other computer actions work fine. I have all packs installed to date.
Oh, seems my workaround sounded ambiguous...
I couldn't finish a WIP book. I startet a new one over the normal writing menu and that one my Sim finished (when he wrote it without pause). hope that clarifies the workaround?!
In my case, I found that my sim, (spellcaster) will not resume writing the book while their familiar is summoned. This is an odd bug
OMG!! That's it! That fixed my bug. Had him try to continue to write or scrap the book with familiar out and he just stood there for a long time and refused to move. Desummoned the familiar and tried to continue again and he went right to it. THANK YOU!
