Crazy Book Author Plagiarism

I am a keen observer of the Book Industry, and the rise of Indy Authors who publish their works directly without using a publisher. The amount of changes in the book industry is amazing. The positive is many more authors can now write full time, where before it was not possible. They are selling their books as eBooks, and getting a higher amount of the price of a book. The current Amazon vs Hachette is all about allocating money. The part that gets forgotten in the feud is the authors. Tip for 99% of authors - Publishers are not looking out for your best interest (yes, Baen is an exception).

Back to topic. In this example, it seems a person took another Author's Christian Book,  and added some sex scenes, and claimed it as her own. When the original author, Rachel Ann Nunes, found out, the plagiarist then attempted using fake screen names to cyber bully the other person with strange claims and negative reviews on their book. Rachel Ann Nunes then set up a gofundme to fund the needed legal costs to protect her books.

 It's a soap opera, that needs to e read to be believed.

And the person who is accused of plagiarism is a school teacher in Utah!
