I just checked with http://www.plagiarismchecker.com/ and found one of my stories there.

I'm inclined to believe this is yet another plagiarism enabling site, but I'm not 100% sure of my analysis.

My novel, The Society, is available now in the Kindle Store: http://www.amazon.com/The-Society-ebook/dp/B00BPF9U2I

I'll take a wild guess.

A place where someone who's stole your work goes to, makes ebooks out of the stories, claims them as their own, and banks any money they make?

I just heard back from them, and they took down the plagiarized copy of my story at my request. Maybe they're not so bad.

I've heard good things about Wattpad, they're supposed to be a very rapidly growing site, aimed mainly at younger readers...

Your plagiarism checker link ain't working for me btw...I was wondering what that was about...


You know you want it, you know you need it bad...get it now on Amazon.com...

My sister has wattpad on her iPhone. It's geared mainly toward teens, though I found the app frustrating. I do like it's side-page scroll for reading stories.

However, I have noticed that there are a lot of stories that are similar sounding. I'm a member on two different erotica sites (this being one) and have contacted the mods at wattpad with the news of identical stories on it. It's a good site, but we just have to be careful.

I know a lot of authors that publish there though I haven't spent a lot of time reading anything myself. Many thing are stolen and published there as well as anywhere else, it seems. I have a place I check here and there for stolen stuff and it amazes me how many people sell other's work!!
