Plagiarism for Profit

Plagiarizers have struck again – this time on ficlit78, and this time FOR PROFIT:

To my dearest virtual friends…

I’m so angry right now that I can barely write. Two weeks ago, a reader informed me that an author over in Vampire Diaries had lifted some of my work from Pretty Kitty and rewritten it into their own (horrible) story. I messaged and confronted them, and the work was promptly taken down.

It got me thinking…how often is my work plagiarized? So I Googled a few lines of my stuff, just to see what would come up… and I found something that made me sick.

Someone named Alexandra Anthony is SELLING my work in her own books called The Vampire Destiny series. You can buy them on Amazon and B&N, for fuck’s sake. I’ve written to the author directly through Facebook and told her to delete my work from her stuff before I contact Amazon and B&N, but honestly, the stuff is already out…

  1. Buttercup: I’d say first and foremost spread the word (reblog this, post on social media, etc), and second, not only don’t buy the book/s, but advise other not to as well. Feel free to post your support on ficlit’s site, too – I can only imagine how sick at heart she must be about all this. ❤
