Copycat Submissions

How many “copycat” submissions do you see? Have you ever seen a compelling “copycat” submission?

Do you mean plagiarized? Or simply an idea that’s hot?

I’ve never gotten a plagiarized manuscript.

I’ve gotten Harry Potter-esque submissions and Twilight-ish submissions. Sometimes they’ve been good, but not right for my company.

Generally, if a book has hit it big, the trend is over by the time the copycats start showing up.
