I’ve hesitated to put this on my personal blog for about a week now due to the constant updates. But the news is well and truly out there so I doubt there will be any additional updates.
Plagiarism. It suckz azz. 😦
Recently, a book named Amazingly Broken started climbing the sales charts. Written by self-published author Jordin Williams, the book reportedly made close to $10,000 in sales in about 6 days – bolstered by the close resemblance to the best-selling New Adult books Easy by Tammara Webber and Beautiful Disaster bu Jamie McGuire.
As the book Amazingly Broken prepared to really start to take off, the well know book blog Dear Author published shocking information: Amazingly Broken was not just similar to the novels Easy and Beautiful Disaster, the book plagiarized whole chunks of the two popular books.

What follows below is my “real time” Goodreads updates of the situation. Some links maybe dead due to caching. All links to author profiles on Goodreads are still good – but the plagiarist tried their best to cover their tracks by gutting/deleting all profiles that were discovered to be attached to this thievery. The “books” that the sockpuppets “wrote” are still attached to these gutted profiles – so please make sure you aren’t buying these “books!”
