Review: C*cky Author

C*cky Author C*cky Author by Fettucine Holliday
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In case you do not know, there is this thing called #cockgate because the author of a book series with titles likeCocky Rockstar: Gabriel Cocker copyrighted the word cocky because her readers where getting confused (supposedly. I have my doubts about this). Anywhoo, she copyrighted the word cocky (so apparently I'm going to get served for using it) and started sending out emails to authors telling them to stop using cocky in the title or else face a lawsuit.

Needless to say, she is an indie and is targetting other indies.

This book is, hopefully, not buy her because it is a parody of the whole thing. And friggin funny. Honesty, the author's bio cracked me up. Fettucine Holliday (without the cheese sauce) mocks all those really bad romance books as well as *cocky and it is quite fun how many times she/he/it/they works in the words including the c-o-c-k.

Look, I don't read much romance. In fact, usually I aim for bad romance because the misspellings make me feel superior. But I know plently of other readers who do and plently writers who write. Both groups have my respect, even if the genre is not one my favorites. This copyrighting of a word that is commonly used in romance is dumb and insulting. I picked this up because it seemed a way to help those authors being targeted by the bad one. And it does, procceds will go to a defense fund if needed, and the book is a hoot. I mean, it's 2.99 and you can read it in like 20 minutes or less, but man, 2.99 is cheap when you keep laughing as much as you do.

Just don't be drinking something when reading. It will go out your nose. Just saying.
