fictional book writing and involving government
Question: If you involve government corruption in your book that's fictional can that get you in trouble. for example writing some novel on a scandal that is just made up, but uses the president and government. Names are different though.Answer:
No, there are many fictional stories about government corruption, and many stories with fictional Presidents as well. Some writers will even take an actual scandal and change a few details to make it into fiction, or create a fictional version of real events. For instance, the recent film Argo
tells the story of the Iranian hostage crisis, but changes the story to make it look like the CIA conducted the rescue operation, rather than the Canadian Ambassador.
