~Review~ 

I finally finished it! The collection in this book is legit! And Duh. 5/5 stars not only because there is literally something for all tastes but because the proceeds are going toward a very good cause. If you haven’t heard, this book is a limited release anthology (you can get one up until August 26) with proceeds going toward RWA’s advocacy fund and also toward authors impacted by creative obstruction. It all started when one (very greedy IMO) author attempted to trademark the use of the word “cocky” in book titles. Ridiculous right?! I know. There was obvs an uproar in the writing community. The aforementioned author (whose name I refuse to propagate) even attempted to get a temporary restraining order to keep Cocktales from being released. Check out #cockygate for more details if you’re interested. In short, it’s a great book and you’re supporting creative expression and free speech essentially. So yeah, do your part and grab one!


~Blurb~
‘Cocktales’ is a limited-release anthology (available *only* from May 26 – August 26, 2018) of original, never before published material, some of which is raw and unedited. Each story was specifically written for this anthology.

The goal of the Cocktales Anthology is to raise funds to fight against obstruction of creative expression. Specifically, what we believe are obstruction attempts through the trademarking of common (single) words for titular use in books / or as a book series (eBooks, print, and audio).

*ALL* net profits will be donated to:
1) Authors already impacted by creative-obstruction (10%), and
2) Romance Writers of America (RWA) (90%) as a general donation intended for their Advocacy Fund.

Disclaimer: This anthology is not being conducted on behalf of RWA, nor does RWA endorse this anthology or effort. They have, however, graciously agreed to accept the funds.
