This irks me to no end! Self-publishing is HARD. This indie author trademarked the word “cocky” and is threatening to sue and collect ALL revenue authors have received with titles including “cocky” if they do not rename and change the covers of their books. “Cocky” is a popular keyword/sub genre of romance. She does not own this word and she is not the first to use it. She published in June 2016. This word has been used in romance titles for DECADES. She is playing the victim when in fact she is the bully and I’m not here for it. #indieauthorsunite#indieauthor#cockygate I’ve never even heard of this author or her titles before this. It’s tragic that she is seeking this negative attention and ruining the careers of countless indie romance authors.

Proof that I'm actually a ragamuffin! In this shot we'd spent the day zip-lining across the jungle canyons past chattering white-faced monkeys.
Our group stopped at mid day to swim in the pool of a waterfall... A much needed refresher! 💧
Then we continued to zigzag our way closer to the ocean. At one point the cable across the river was so long they had to throw me off the platform as hard as they could. Even then, I didn't get to the next platform and had to be "rescued" by the guide. My husband had to rescue himself! LOL 😂
I love adventure and add this stuff into my stories, because it's life... It's taking that chance and living to tell about it!
Had a great time connecting with Independent Book Publishers Association Director of Marketing and Programming, Lee Wind. I’ve been a proud member for 3 years consecutively, and I’m looking forward to mixing magic. #IBPA#IndieAuthorsUnite
