Update on the previous entry

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett

More on the writer who was called out on plagiarism.

Victoria Strauss has weighed in over at Writer Beware. It looks like the author sent Christopher Hill quite a bit of money to ghostwrite the book, and then the story gets bizarre. I'll let you read it over there.

I really feel sad that someone in her situation was taken in so many different ways. It also appears she could have handled this situation a little better. Perhaps she panicked, which is understandable, but it seems to me she's going to have a tough time given the statements she's made during the day. (I'm not a lawyer, yadda, yadda...)

She says she has a lawyer, and I hope she's got someone who is familiar with intellectual property law. If not, I hope her attorney refers her to someone who is well-versed in the area. I've a feeling she's going to need all the help she can get.
