Hi y’all,

Every now and again I come across a post, somewhere on the web, that stops me in my tracks and takes my breath away.

This is one of those times, so, if you have a coffee break, pull up a pew and take a look at this:

http://www.strictlywriting.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/thetime-hunters-authour-carl-ashmore.html

Essentially it’s a tale about an author who has discovered a HUGE publisher has a book out that’s very similar to his, and one of the publishing staff had previously praised his book on a writing site.

At the time of writing, the jury is still out. But have a look, see what you think, and please consider sharing it around. If the Net has one strength it is people power.

Thanks guys,

Derek

    This happens to me all the time. I write a bestseller, then tell a few friends who write something nearly the same. They earn the Big Bucks and I’m left destitute. Is this fair? I hate plagiarism like the plague. Thanks for letting me rant.
