Jordin Williams - Plagiarizes!!!

In case you missed the big news....

"Author" Jordin Williams was caught plagiarizing Authors Tammara Webber and Jamie McGuire's work!!! Jordin basically copy & pasted large chunks of text from Easy (by Webber) and Beautiful Disaster (by McGuire) ...both books I've read and LOVED...and put it into her own book, Amazingly Broken. 

Much thanks to Dear Author for breaking this story and providing proof of Jordin's misdoings! Check out the original post here!

You can follow some of the discussion that took place earlier today on Twitter between Jordin, Webber & McGuire by visiting GalleyCat.

 All I can say is what nerve!! It is seriously disgusting for anybody to steal another authors work and try to pass it off as their own. And its even more unbelievable that she thought she could get away with it! After coming up with excuse after excuse all social media links for Jordin have been taken down and she's conveniently vanished. Her identity is in question b/c while the Goodreads profile pic is of a woman (some say its a stock photo) the gender clearly says "Male". And apparently she has also gone by the names Jordin Baker or Jordin Bishop. 

Interesting, huh? It doesn't end there! Supposedly (according to Jordin herself) she is a ghostwriter turned author who was tired of not getting credit/recognition for her work and decided to write her own books. Yet when the sh*t hit the fan Jordin denied ever having writing Amazingly Broken and instead claims she hired a ghostwriter who plagiarized without her knowledge. Yeah right. Why does a ghostwriter hire a ghostwriter?? She then goes on to blame 2 different websites for what happend (guru and odesk). And let's not forget that on the Goodreads page for her book it clearly says "I loved writing this book!" Shady much?? 

If you purchased Amazingly Broken by Jordin Williams RETURN IT ASAP!!!

  1. It's disturbing. This has been happening with Lorelei James as well. It's sad how easy it is for someone to steal an amazing author's hard work and pass it off as their own.
