Throw the book at her

First fake writers, now fake publishers.
...As part of her guilty plea, Ivery admitted she defrauded clients from 1995 through 2002, either through her publishing company in Catskill or by posing as a literary agent named "Kelly O'Donnell."

When Ivery failed to follow through on promises to publish books, she told writers there were problems with illustrations, or computers, or, in one case, that the manuscript had been aboard one of the planes hijacked in the Sept. 11 attacks, prosecutors said.
