on The Blood Red Pencil:
As Maryann Miller detailed in her March post, recently a hack named Cristiane Serruya came up with what she thought was a clever scheme.
She trimmed paragraphs from multiple books, quilted them together, then published them as her own work.
She changed the titles, character names, and a word here or there.
The results were a bit like Frankenstein’s monster, but she got away with it, for a while.
