Twilight author Stephenie Meyer is being accused of ripping off another vampire book, TMZ reports. Jordan Scott claims the series’ fourth installment, Breaking Dawn, bears a “striking and substantial similarity” to her 2006 book The Nocturne, with both including a post-wedding sex scene, a doomed pregnancy, and the death of the main character’s wife. Meyer and her reps deny any knowledge of Scott’s book.
After reading the cease-and-desist letter Scott sent Meyer’s publisher, however, the Cajun Boy is “unconvinced of any wrongdoing,” he blogs for Gawker. “You’d almost think that Scott thinks as though she’s the only writer to ever include a wedding, a death, and a sex scene in a novel, but go ahead and judge for yourself.” Read the letter at the link below.
