The most important item that any writer or author needs to remember about any type of writing, something that is taught in grade school, and that is to not plagiarize. In the case of any author or aspiring author, don’t break the copyright by copying what another author has done.
Sure, you may believe no one knows, but eventually, it will land you in court. Besides breaking the copyright, don’t purposely choose to write behind another author or authors. This means to mimic their story or stories in your book. Try to come up with a story on your own because in the end, you will fair much better. Besides that, eventually again, people will know the fraud and the author will be called out by the public.
