7:20pm EST UPDATE: SOME of the blog posts in question have been deleted, the blog still exists & no apology has been given.
9:14pm EST UPDATE: Half hearted apology posted on her blog. I am assuming since I am rude I will not be getting an apology. Also, she wasn’t away for 48 hours, I have screen shost of her Goodreads that says otherwise. Explain to me how she was “notified” of plagiarism. YOU DID IT HOW DID YOU NOT KNOW?!
I got a DM on Twitter this morning from a blogger friend of mine. Apparently she saw that one of my reviews had been partially used in another bloggers review. Not cool people.
I left comments on the post in question & was met with “Held until blog owner approves it”. I called her out on Twitter & again, ignored. But then I was met with a few different bloggers saying she’d done the same thing to them. Now here in lies my big issue. This blogger is “well known” she moderates TWO author message boards, BIG authors at that. She knows she’s done wrong, because the blogger who DM’d me had given her two days to take all the posts down & she was ignored as well. Nevermind her bullshit Tweet after an AUTHOR called her out. If it was just me, I would have kept it between us but since she can’t be bothered, neither can I.
I have other examples of her pieced together reviews thanks to another reviewer:
It’s totally not cool to steal from people who take their time writing reviews, who aren’t lazy & enjoy what they do. You picked the wrong blogger to steal a sentence or two from. I’ve already contacted the people who need to know since you couldn’t be bothered to respond to anyone. Thanks for playing. Game Over.
