I read some articles on this, about the author and some of the reviews, and at the time I heard about this on the news and a copyright lawyer didn't think she had a very solid case because it would have to be legitimate copying of the scenes in the books. And Jordan Scott did say that Stephanie may have read the book (The Nocturne), as a model for her scenes in Breaking Dawn. (which I seriously doubt). So I definitely see why it wasn't true where Stephanie was concerned.
Also, the book (The Nocturne) is a totally different story and while it has vampires in the book, and also wolves, it is nothing like Breaking Dawn; The Nocturne is set in medieval France, while Stephanie's books are set in Forks, Washington. The books do have the love story, though the Nocturne is nothing like Stephanie's books. I read some of the reviews for the book on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, and those who had read the book say that the story was all over the place, and the storyline often gets lost, and a lot of the people also said that it wasn't edited at all. And some don't even know how it was able to be published; and it wasn't formally published by a publishing house like Stephanie's books were, so I think she will have a book that she wrote at 15 be lost in the shuffle, also from one of the articles I read at the time, she said she was currently writing the screenplay for the book.
I cannot believe this!!!! What utter garbage, so one reads a book when younger and a bunch of years later finds the heart to write a book later and then is sued because of "some simularitys!". Well remind me never to write a book, I've read thousands and now if I write or print one any or all of them could be used in this manor! Has anyone ever heard that history is supposed to repeat itself, well, so do "occurances". I've never heard weaker drivel in my life. Weak minded thiefs are in every walk of live, it's just a pure shame that people try to get rich off of someone elses work...maybe they should go read a book instead of wasting everyone's time and Ms.Meyers money sueing for "the hell of it"!!! Please! TELL THAT LAWYER TO GO GET A LIFE!!!
I don't believe so either
