* I am sad to say that one of the books that was recently promoted on my blog, was a fraud. "AMAZINGLY BROKEN" by JORDIN WILLIAMS. Of course, at the time of the blog tour...no one knew this. I personally have not read this book...and now I never will. But, I did however do a spotlight on the book as well as an author interview.
At the time of this post, the book has been taken down from Amazon.com ... hopefully other online retailers have taken the same action. If you were one of the MANY people who purchased this book, you can get a refund. I feel so bad that I even had this book on my blog and recommended it to all you awesome readers. For real, you all are beyond fabulous and you are what keeps me blogging. Each time I see a comment from one of you, I get all giddy! Haha, it's true! I just get so excited that people out there are reading what I write. You guys are also what allowed me to be brave enough to start writing my own book. And I think you all with love it. =)
Anyway..."Amazingly Broken" by Jordin Williams blatantly plagiarized "Easy" by Tammara Webber and "Beautiful Disaster" by Jamie McGuire. And no...it wasn't just the basic idea of these books. We do see this happen a lot (and no that doesn't make it okay). But if you check out this website right here, this blogger shows you some line by line examples of the author's copying. It's truly insane, and I really think you all should take a look at it. Even if you don't read through the whole thing...you'll see all the highlights. All those highlights are some examples of the plagiarizing she did.
So again...I'm sorry that this book and author were even on my blog to begin with. If you did purchase it, go get your money back. Instead, use the money to buy "Easy" by Tammara Webber and Jamie McGuire's "Beautiful Disaster."
