First Of All....... What The H!
Thanks to TMZ for letting us know about a new case against Stephenie Meyer in which she’s accused of ripping off some unknown vampire novel for the fourth installment of the series ‘Breaking Dawn’ by an equally unknown writer. According to TMZ:
Turns out Stephenie Meyer, the woman behind the Twilight series, isn’t the onlyperson to write about sexy vampires — ’cause she’s being accused of ripping off thestoryline for her fourth ultra-successful book by a less famous, less rich author.
A woman named Jordan Scott fired off a cease and desist letter to the publisher of“Breaking Dawn” — the fourth book in the series — claiming the Twilight talecontains a “striking and substantial similarity” to Scott’s book, “The Nocturne.”
In her extremely detailed letter , Scottclaims her book was published in 2006 — two years before “Breaking Dawn” — andit’s no coincidence that many of the scenes are almost identical. Such as…
– Both books contain a post-wedding sex scene– Both books contain a scene about a woman who’s sick because she’s carrying achild with “evil powers”– Both books contain a scene with the death of the main character’s wife
And according to Scott, the dialogue in all of these scenes — and more — isextremely similar.
But Meyer’s rep is calling BS — telling TMZ, “The claim that ‘Breaking Dawn’ byStephenie Meyer somehow infringes on an alleged book by someone named Jordan Scottis completely without merit. Neither Stephenie Meyer nor her representatives had anyknowledge of this writer or her supposed book prior to this claim.”
You know you’ve made it when some loser tries to accuse you of stealing their unknown work. It happened to J.K. Rowling and Stephen King!
