Most of you who have started following my blog found me because of the #CopyPasteCris scandal on Twitter (@CaffeinatedFae). If you follow me on Twitter then you probably have already seen this but Claire gave me permission to post this on my blog, so I’m sharing it with those who do not have twitter or have missed the tweet on it.
The lovely Claire Ryans (
@aetherlev) created a beautiful visual for all of us to see just how much copied text was found in only one of Serruya’s books. Each line of color represents an author & the black is “original” text from Royal Affair. Personally, I would bet that the black is just plagiarism that we haven’t found yet, but that is just my opinion. It’s so jarring to see this. All of those lines are stolen words.
*If you didn’t already know, Claire Ryan (
@aetherlev) is the one who created a fantastic algorithm that has been finding more or the plagiarized texts in the #CopyPasteCris scandal! FYI she’s an author so check out her books here. If you want to learn more about her, her website can be found here.
