Davis Lassman took chapters from three of Jane Austenâ€™s books, Northanger Abbey, Pride and Prejudice, and Persuasion, and sent them to 18 different literary agents and publishers. He changed the titles (although he left some hints) and the charactersâ€™ names. Of the 18, one recognized the work (and warned him of plagiarism), one said they were 'a really original read', but the rest either rejected the chapters or never responded. Link -via Reddit
