Q:Do you mind books with similar ideas to other books? Similar concepts, backgrounds, retellings or pulled-to-publish fanfic?

Yes, I do mind. It's one thing to use someone's characters and tell an original story with fanfiction because you're not claiming to own those characters you're just borrowing them for a little while to tell your own story. I don't even mind some retellings, because sometimes there's a really good twist thrown in or an interpretation that you never would have imagined, but still kind of fits. But flat out stealing the idea from another book or only changing a few things is terrible. I hate that. But what I dislike even more than that is publishers who publish those books that are practically a copy of whatever book they copied. It's times like that I feel all they can see is the money it might make them instead of how honest readers will look at them when they see a book that's practically a carbon copy of another book.
