• Random House sued ME; not the other way around.
  • Random House filed suit to silence the facts I was posting on the web.
  • There has been NO trial on the facts, only the Random House effort to prevent a trial.
  • The only sworn statements made under penalty of perjury are affidavits from me and my experts, nothing from RH.
  • The judge refused to consider any expert analysis.
  • Despite suing me first, Random House & Sony UNsuccessfully demanded that I pay the $310,000 in legal fees they spent to sue me.
  • Contrary to the Random House spin, I am not alleging plagiarism of general issues, but of several hundred very specific ones.
  • This is not about money. Anything I win goes to charity.

Booksellers Believe

I spent a wonderful Saturday at the Northern California Independent Booksellers Association (NCIBA) annual convention, talking, listening and signing books.

Almost everywhere I turned, booksellers came up to me and expressed their opinions that The Da Vinci Code had taken my material. Sure, some of those are private conversations, but this continued during the book signing when there were witnesses from both my publisher and NCIBA who overheard the same thing and made comment to me about that.

Yes, we're talking witnesses and we're talking "LAY READERS."

Now, if only we get a level of justice that allows the truth to be heard in court -- something Random House has spent more than $300,000 to prevent. That's a LOT of money to keep the facts from coming to light.

Once again, one can only wonder what it is that Random House is so afraid of having come out in court.

And why Dan Brown won't testify under oath that he did NOT plagiarize my work.

They filed suit against me and have spent an awful lot of money to keep those secrets.
