I know it works since the update/ECO. I've since done a Realm of Magic playthrough and one of my sims was a writer, published a bunch of books. It worked fine.

 

I agree, try it without mods and see if it works.  If it works without mods, you'll have to go through them to try and figure out which one.

@crinrict  I am not sure if it's related, but I found I cannot publish by selling to publisher. I can only "self publish" from the mailbox with one of my sim writers. Another sim writer can ask the publisher. (action from mailbox) Maybe in certain neighborhoods you can only self publish?

@IrisuChan That would be weird. Which hood do you have issues with ? Does it appear if you move houses for testing ?

Do you have mods/cc ?

Apologies if I’m asking the obvious, but what level writing skill are your Sims at? Self-publishing is level 2 and sell to publisher is level 5.

I have just the same problem, and so do others, so I don't think it's a mod; definitely a bug of some kind.
