​Book Description  


Penelope's Tragic Tales of Self-Publishing: Fiction based on true stories

International intrigue, fraud, impersonating Americans, bank accounts depleted, threats of violence, shady accounting practices. It sounds like a Hollywood movie, but its taking place in real-life, and in the most unlikely of arenas: self-publishing.
After a lifetime of working hard and saving her money, Penelope wrote her dream novel, and immediately was beset with a series of unscrupulous self-publishers who took her for her life savings. It was then that her friends, a rag-tag team of retirees, take on the international self-publishing world in an effort to right the wrongs and get Penelope’s money back.
