This is the notice and summary of my own #Cockygate nightmare. I have been posting this on social media sites--hoping for positive change.
No one should be sued, stalked and harassed over a WORD in their book title. Please help support authors who are victims of malicious and frivolous lawsuits like me. Also, please support the Authors Guild. I am a proud member of the Authors Guild. They fight very hard for the rights of fellow artists/authors.
Please share my message (feel free to click and copy the jpeg above) with everyone you can. United we stand against vexatious litigants--serial lawsuit filers. The felon who sued had over 300 defendants! Including his own MOTHER!
He even claimed to have collaborated on my novel and movie--total lies. He had ZERO to do with my projects. He was a critique partner in a group I belonged to and nothing more. He was kicked out of that group for rude behavior--go figure. Believe me--I don't need a convicted pedophile being associated with any of my middle grade or YA projects. He crazily believes that the title, The Forlorned, belongs to him and sued for trademark infringement--even though I already OWNED the trademark because it was the name of my corporation.
How crazy is that?
Even crazier is that because this felon is on welfare--he gets to file his phony lawsuits for free--paid by hard earned tax dollars--while the rest of us have to pay dearly--just to defend ourselves.
Please join my fight for justice!
