Had already ordered the book, but my order got cancelled due to a plagiarism claim.

As a writer I have experienced similar issues, either as being plagiarised or writing a piece of original fiction and then after reviewing it after a couple of days, noticing I have channelled one of my fave authors. I erase that stuff as soon as I discover it, so no harm done.
But what that girl did, it is claimed she copied over 45 passages from five different books unintentionally ... nope, not buying it. If she has eidetic memory, she should have picked up on these passages. If I can do it, she could do it too ... and using her inexperience at 19 ... sorry even with 19 she should have experience enough to know plagiarism doesn't get you further, it only gets you book deals that explode into your face and will discredit you for the rest of your life. Imagine, if she goes into research, all her papers will be scrutinised beyond all recognition because she was caught ones. With 19 she should have thought about that. But obviously she could only see the money, the fame and the glory ...

Ah yeah well, the perks and glories of being a publishing author. :snicker:

Yozora no mukou ni wa mou asu ga matteiru

yozora no mukou no hoshi ni natta
nurashita hoho wa itsuka kawaite
