Breaking Dawn = copycat?

Just read an interesting article via http://www.thebookseller.com about Stephanie Meyers and Breaking Dawn.

Meyer’s 4th book of the Twilight series, Breaking Dawn, apparently has some striking similarities to Jordon Scott’s novel, The Nocturne. The Nocturne was

“released one chapter at a time on the author/singer/actresses’ Web site and available through some online booksellers, but which was never distributed widely to traditional bookstores.”

Reading the rest of the article, you’d think that Jordon Scott is the one plagiarizing Stephanie Meyers. Quite an interesting development. Jordon Scott began working on The Nocturne when she was just 15 years old, posting chapters online. It seems that the book was eventually published in 2006 by Griffon Publishing.
