Scam Description

I paid $3595 for Penguin Bookwriter to publish a book entitled ‘Arthur, Merlyn, and the Bat Scientists at the Round Table.’ The manuscript and half payment was submitted Dec. 29, 2022 and I recently paid the balance March 15, 2023; however, 50% of the work is yet to be completed.
I have emailed and called and get very little reaction or revisions regarding updating the manuscript to final publishing format. I have an agreement in writing detailing the specifications of the book, but there is NO end date and I am stressed out by their unprofessional manner regarding the material I expect to be included in the content of the book.
