Again the same

Some people just don't learn*. You will be found out* if you plagiarize!

This one had used the same excuse.

Is it unwell of me to be wondering if plagiarizing a fanfiction # novel# is actually wrong?

It seems to me I'd receive more money and prestige completely making things up.

Don't forget to finish up all of your Aston West fanfic to post on my blog next week...

After that freebie period, I'm getting use of Lucas' lawyers in a barter deal...

I KNEW Aston was Han's brother's cousin's former roommate!

But will it sell on Amazon?

Probably more copies than PA...'s entire catalogue.

Very interesting. I was going to say funny, if it wasn't a bit depressing.

When the publicity rolled on Viswanathan's novel I was rather jealo-,er,um suspicious that someone so young could write so well. Could happen though.

Then the story yesterday about the plagiarism. Her quoted excuse sounded very much like something suggested by a lawyer. I guess that will be the new excuse to blatantly rip off other's work.

And the depressing part is the likelyhood that this book, like Million Little Pieces, will sell just fine thank you.

That's so sad. Next you're going to tell me William Shatner's hair isn't real.

As long as it sells more than the PA tome someone did for their first piece of AW fanfic...

I get reply notification.

So I opened jamie's comment/email and the accompanying google ads were for wigs.

Aston, you sold PA your fanfic? Oh you poor thing!

Nah, someone wrote a piece of AW fanfic and sold it to PA...I think you've already read it...

OOOH. Absolute Write, not Aston West.

Boy, that cluebat was painful. *rub*

Are you smoking something that you thought was corn (but isn't) up there in corn country?

Hero is the piece of AW (Aston West) fanfic I was referring to...

*sigh*

;-P

I stand corrected. Viswanathan's novel was pulled from the shelves, out of people's hands at bus stops, and left by the curb at libraries. Next stop, oblivion.

There is justice. I feel like Robert Duvall in 'Apocolypse Now'. "I love the smell of [pulped paper] in the morning...It smells like-victory."

Aston
It was in a pipe, they said suck.

I think I remember signing a contract after that...

Todd
I wonder if it will be become a collector's item?


Hmm, there's an idea. The complete set of plagiarists projects. eBay here I come!
