Romance "author" Cassie Edwards takes the cake for Google-aided plagiarism.

I want to make snarky comments about plagiarism, but this is so bizarre it stands on its own: romance "author" Cassie Edwards uses passages of an environmental magazine article as dialog in novel and is outed by the ladies of Smart Bitches, Trashy Books.

Links:
- Cassie Edwards Investigatory Extravaganza at SBTB
- "Move Over, 'Meerkat Manor'" article at Newsweek
