Plagiarized Love

It seems that the latest prolific plagiarist to be uncovered is Cristiane "Cris" Serruya (#CopyPasteCris).  

Courtney Milan has posted a thorough explanation.  Other authors have now found their work in Serruya's books including Courtney Milan, Victoria Alexander, Bella Andre, Christa Caldwell, Loretta Chase, Kresley Cole, Tessa Dare, Lynne Graham, Abby Green, Lisa Kleypas, Karen Marie Moning, Trish Morey, Alys Murray, and Nora Roberts.

Ethics aside, in a digitally connected world this shit won't work for very long, so why even bother?

Cris is claiming "Fiverr ghostwriters running amok" as her defense.  To a largely skeptical response because, well shit, who wouldn't copyscape or otherwise check ghostwritten work these days? (And if this is true she submitted ghostwritten work to the RITAs.)
