#CockyGate – All the CockyLinks

If you’ve been following along with #Cockygate, where an author has decided to trademark a common word “Cocky” (Excellent posts here: by Pajiba and a more legal view at Legal Inspiration) You’ll be aware that Romance Readers, Bloggers and Authors are in uproar. When Romancelandia gets a bee in their bonnet, they come out swinging…

Jamila Jasper has preemptively taken down her book “Cocky Cowboy” until all of this is resolved. If you want to support her in the interim, check out her book listings here: https://amzn.to/2HRjaXI
EDITED TO ADD Jamila has now released her Book “The Cockiest Cowboy To Have Ever Cocked” (in KU) So Cock away dear cockers!!

EDITED TO ADD: Attorney and Indie-Author Kevin Kneupper filed a Petition to Cancel the COCKY Trademark with the TCO this morning.

You can view the legal petition here >> http://bit.ly/2KGjPca
Let’s support Kevin’s pro bono fight by purchasing one of his novels here https://amzn.to/2HZiEHn

 

I thought I’d collate a list of books with “Cocky” in the title so we can spread some love to these authors. A lot of them are in Kindle Unlimited, so you can borrow & read a lot of them in a short amount of time.

These first two authors have already been through the financial cost of changing their book titles, so show them extra love.
Disclaimer: I’ve only read two of the ones listed below so far. However my oneclick finger will get a work out when I’m back from Infinity War tonight.
