It has come to my attention that a woman named Marlene Daniels of Soapconscious has been copying and pasting my writing from this blog and my e-books and re-selling them under her name.
I figure about 80% of her lipsticks e-book is based on my blog, and it looks like she is using my comparison charts about oils in just about any e-book in which she mentions them.
Upon further review, it looks like most of her e-books are copied and pasted from someone else's work, like Perry Romanowski of Chemists' Corner. She has some recipes that are clearly mine, and she is selling recipe books like "504 body care recipes" and calling them compilations.
Please don't buy e-books from this person. She is using materials from other people to teach classes and write e-books and this isn't okay. She is making money from the kindness of those who offer information on-line, and she is claiming our hard work as her own. She is taking money from my youth programs by cutting and pasting from the e-books I have written to raise money for them.
If you have purchased an e-book from her, and you see something you think may be mine, could you send me a screen cap image of the writing" I'd be so grateful to you for this. (Please don't send me the e-book aa I previously requested. I'd hate to be accused of breaching copyright for what she might have written. An image is allowed.)
And I guess I have to say this here - it isn't okay to use my writing without my permission to make money for yourself. Please don't use my charts, blog posts, or e-books without permission in your e-books, e-zines, classes, podcasts, and so on without asking if this is okay. Please don't copy my work or link directly to a chart. I don't make money from this blog, and I don't think it's fair that someone else thinks they can.
Please spread this information far and wide. If you have ever written anything on line, written a blog or an e-book, or shared a recipe, check out the tables ...
