Authors Marisa Oldham and Angie Martin discuss #cockygate 2018. The scandal is where one indie romance author, Faleena Hopkins, trademarked the word COCKY for use in romance titles and series. She is going after any author with the word Cocky in their titles, demanding they change the title or she will sue them. The debate is whether or not this is acceptable behavior as an author. Special guest Author Elizabeth York will be joining us.
