I bet many of you were following along during the #CopyPasteCris fiasco, right? Well, during that time, I stumbled into something. A small group of readers pointed out a mess that many authors only recently discovered-- but these readers had been talking about it *FOR MONTHS*
What was IT?

I've been calling it book regurgitation. And if you're a lover of the Motorcyle Romance subgenre. or you dig 'bad boy romance'.. wow, are those infested. And I do mean infested.

Look at this shit. Nicole Fox & Naomi West on display here. side by side comparison of Built to Kill, Nicole Fox, identical to Bad Boy's Touch by Naomi West.
Now this is *not* plagiarism. These are folks who collectively sell the rights amongst themselves... as demonstrated here by @authorstarling on a site could Dirty Discourse. (they don't like it when you say bad things about them, from what I've heard. Hey, DD.) OR...

BTW... there are a LOT of readers who've commented about being frustrated regarding the #kindleunlimited #scamming issues that have come more into public focus thanks to #CopyPasteCris. It's an ongoing issue...much of my info came from Twitter user Nikki. She has screenshots. Isabella Fawn/Marci Fawn on Dirty Discourse posting about selling her backlist and opening stating it had been previously published.
Many go back for months. #KindleUnlimited #scammers @amazon @AmazonKDP Readers even noticed this problem themselves as far back as 2017, if you look at the #hottakes on my blog. They didn't realize it was a buy/sell thing, maybe, but they saw the copying. shilohwalker.com/website/catego…
Some of the 'defenders' of this shitty practice, like my good friend, Bob, claim this is purely honest and ethical.

FYI, if you haven't Bob...this is Bob.

This comment was at KU. Bob has also defend his crappy crap at La Nora's blog & over @SuzanTisdale's blog. Bob Frost defending crap takes on misleading readers when books are repackaged and resold as new with no disclosure.

I've got another #HotTake on the blog about #KindleUnlimited scammers. I'm posting a short rundown to make a moment, but if you want the full details, visit my blog.

We really do need to 'gate' this. So #ScammerGate.

May I present the newest inductee into the ‘non-author’ Hall of Infamy.

Heather West, & she brought friends, Sophia Gray & Zoey Parker.

#NonAuthorHallOfInfamy See, they don't even get the dubious honor of #authorsbehavingbadly
To be an #authorbehavingbadly, I think we can all agree that you must at least *be* an author.

Buying manuscripts from people & repackaging then as yours, selling as new, all that makes you a book *packager*. Packaging & marketing does not an author make.

It's not complicated.

A heads up to fellow #writers out there, regardless of genre.

You might have heard about #CopyPasteCris. Something that's come to light, or rather been finally spotlighted after some readers & others raised hell that we all need to be aware of AND ACT ON. shilohwalker.com/website/2019/0…
Scammers are buying proliferating on the #KindleUnlimited platform which hurts all authors whether they use @AmazonKDP or not, whether you're traditionally published, with a small press or go the indie route.
These people are literally SELLING & RESELLING manuscripts & copyright only to repackage, recover & release as a brand new book under another author's name (with a shiny, new fake copyright, too). This is deceptive as hell. @AmazonKDP @Amazonhelp has been notified to no avail.

Alright, people...let's play a game.

I'm going to do another #HotTake on the blog in a bit but I'm going to let you see how I collect the info for this. Now bear with me, because some of this requires info gathering which can be slow.

I've laid out a lot of this
beforehand, but once I get down to the nitty gritty, it takes more time.

First... have you checked out the #WTF on Nora Roberts' blog?

fallintothestory.com/whiskey-tango-…

It stems from a comment made by one Mr. Frost.
#hottake
Frost, you see, views books as 'assets'. That's it. Commodities to be bought and sold, and readers aren't really even considered.

Those aren't my words. See? MY words are in red. Frost is quite active on the forums at Kboards.
