Author has written 2 stories for Twilight.

Plagiarism - it's an ugly word and it's an ugly act. Though really, it's almost too nice of a word for what it is. Too complicated. What plagiarism really is, is theft, plain and simple. And when it happens to an author, when someone steals our work and claims it as their own, it hurts just as much as if someone came into our house and stole our most precious possession.

I was recently alerted by one of my readers that Golden Moon had been plagiarized. I went to read the story she referred me to and, sure enough, the author took word-for-word chunks of Golden Moon chapters 23, 25, 26 and 27 to create "her own" date for Jasper and Bella. That was upsetting and disappointing. Her reaction to my PM letting her know I knew of the infringement and asking her to take down and re-write the chapters was even more so. Although she ostensibly re-wrote the chapters, she still left large chunks of my text in, including the "Caleb" character from chapter 25 (whom she re-named, as if that made a difference). And when I PM'd her with a long list of passages that were copied directly, word for word, from my story, she replied that she might be willing to change some of her dialogue and dialogue only, if it didn't interfere with the gist of "her story." She then had the nerve to put up an AN saying that I plagarized an article her cousin wrote years ago. Really? What then is the explanation for the direct copy of the dialogue between characters that has absolutely nothing to do with sightseeing? I was dumbstruck by the audacity and nerve. Then again, hard to expect much else from someone who had no compunction about stealing in the first place.

I will report both the author and the story to fan fiction and I hope that they will help take the offending chapters off the site. Frankly, given how many changes I have given this person to voluntarily correct her "mistake," I feel a harsher punishment is required, but that's not my call. If, however, does not help me resolve this, then I guess I will have little choice but to remove GM from the site so that this kind of thing does not happen again. I have been very sad when I have seen other authors do this, though even then I thought I understood how they must feel. Sad to say, I really understand it now.

I know that most of this community is made up of honest people, and it is a shame that a few bad apples can spoil it for the rest of us. Needless to say, since the situation is still unresolved it leaves a very bitter taste in my mouth. But I really want to say thank you to the reader who alerted me to the problem, as well as to other readers who mentioned Golden Moon in their reviews of the other story, telling the author they knew she was copying my story. I'm not going to say what the other story is and I'm not encouraging people to look for it and flame the author. the fanfiction.net authorities will either help me resolve this or not. But I did want you all to know what's going on. And while it had always been my intent to come back and write the sequels to Golden Moon, after this whole affair I'm not really sure if I want to post any more of my work here for free so that other people can steal it without compunction or apology. Hopefully after this is all over I will be able to get some distance and perspective and cool off, but right now, well, I'm not a happy writer.

Again, thanks to those readers who know what I'm talking about and who have supported me through this. I appreciate it!


Just a little about myself. I'm 37 and married.

My DH and I are total DINKS (dual income no kids) so we can indulge in more personal obsessions than most adults with other responsibilities. My current obsession is Twilight and Twilight fan-fiction. I adore Jasper in almost any characterization, hence my story is a Jasper/Bella story. I appreciate all feedback, so if you're reading Golden Moon, please leave a review! Thanks!

At some point, I will be posting certain Golden Moon chapters from Jasper's point of view. The winners in the reader poll were: Chapter 37 (My kind of Rain), Chapter 40 (Just Like Heaven), and Chapter 54 (It All Revolves Around You).

SEQUEL AND OUTTAKE UPDATE (10-13-10):

So first I promised a sequel by September 2009, then February 2010. Here it is, October 2010 and no sequel in sight. And, unfortunately, this time I do not even have an ETA, because I found that I cannot estimate the time to complete my other writing project with any sort of reliability. Basically, it turned out to be a lot longer and more time consuming than I ever thought possible. And short of cloning me, there's really nothing anyone can do to speed up the process. All I can say at this point is that the hiatus is going to be a lot longer. The two sequels are outlined and I do plan to write them some day - I simply cannot say, at this point, when. I really apologize for the delay.
