Plagiarism Abounds

The cheek of some would be authors is astounding. Apparently a writer named Christine Phoenix decided to lift not just a paragraph but pretty much a whole passage, if not more, from author J.L. Langley's novel "With Love".

Here is the whole story. Thank you TeddyPig and Vacuous Minx and for making this public so communities of writers could pass it on.

This is not something to be taken lightly. We writers work hard and the last thing anyone should do is rip off our work and call it their own. Sure similarities can happen and it does, but blatant, word for word stealing is a disgrace to the craft. Shame on you Miss Phoenix.

Happy Easter and no more rotten eggs!!
