Kindling a Romance

As we’re all aware, it’s ridiculously easy to plagiarize information. What I did not realize is how easy it is to plagiarize information and then turn a profit!

Apparently, the Kindle supports a thriving erotica section and one of the most popular authors, Sharazade, in a fit of jealous irritation, decided to investigate the leading contributor:

“I took a sentence from the description and put it in between quotes and dropped it into Google, and Bram Stoker’s Dracula came up.” Shar says. “It was word for word Dracula.”

Her reasons notwithstanding, she seems to have uncovered a nefarious scheme in which authors lift free erotica from websites and then sell it as their own on the Kindle marketplace.

I’m not sure why it would be necessary to plagiarize erotica, but I suppose laziness knows no bounds. I, however, am going to seriously consider breaking into this marketplace. Be on the lookout for my forthcoming title The Lust of the Lobsterman’s Wife.
