You may have seen this picture going around lately. Unsure why?
An "author" by the name of Sam Taylor Mullens plagiarized a book. Possibly multiple books. But she didn't just take a book, steal some scenes from it, write the rest, and publish it as her own. She took a book, added a few lines, threw in some erotica, and called it her own.
You can read the story in detail on Rachel Ann Nune's blog HERE. Who is Rachel Ann Nunes? The author Sam stole from.
Go ahead, read the story. It gets crazier and crazier the further down you read.
If you want to read the story from another perspective, you can read David Farland's post HERE.
The good news is people are banding together to support Rachel. This is important because if nothing is done, it is a message to everyone that they can get away with plagiarism. Which isn't cool and should never happen! So, interested in standing with Rachel against plagiarism?
You can check out the GoFundMe Campain to help Rachel stop plagiarism HERE!
On top of the GoFundMe, I am donating a portion of all my book and jewelry sales (now through September 1st) to the campaign.
You can check out my Etsy store HERE.
Even a $1 donation helps!
