Once again the trusting readers and writers on Booksie
have a serial plagiarist in their midst.


Currently posted on Booksie by Boyer, under his alias Darren Oberhaus, is The Cruelest Lie of All.  It is a patchwork plagiarized from several authors.

Boyer Back on Booksie- Hunting for Prey or Praise?


David Boyer returned to Booksie as his alias Darren Oberhaus.
 
Is he looking for trusting authors to plagiarize or is he looking for the adulation he appears to crave?


Previously on Booksie Boyer posted stories plagiarized from Lisa Morton and Ferrel "Rick" Moore.

Easy as 1, 2, 3...See David Boyer Steal a Story! (Email Evidence)

I'd like to thank Ferrel "Rick" Moore for sending me the emails from his recent blog post:
http://thewriterandthewhitecat.blogspot.com/2012/04/feeding-ground.html



First step, find good hunting ground for poaching. 
 Join a writer's group, especially ones that critiques stories.



Second step, bait your trap.
Send out stories for review.


Third step, wait for the unsuspecting prey to arrive.
Other writers of the group send their stories to you.


It's just that easy!


Below is the rest of the email exchange:






What happened next?
  
Boyer deleted Ferrel "Rick" Moore's name and attached his own to the story.  He then published Moore's story as his own in various magazines, on various websites, and in over 9 books he personally published.


Boyer could have gotten away with it if it wasn't for the fact Ferrel "Rick" Moore published his story in the anthology Beyond the Porch Light and Other Tales in 2002.

Serial Plagiarist David Boyer Writes A Screenplay


The screenplay is not plagiarized, but that's not necessarily a good thing.   For example, the characters are flat, and the dialogue is implausible.

See the below excerpt from his screenplay where Brian Davis speaks with attorney Chris Tapley.

I took a week off of blogging...conducted some research.

So, next week look for news posts, for updates on old posts, and for a little comedy relief.
