Many of you might have heard, and for those of you who haven't, we've had some upheaval in the Romance community. Where I understand wanting to protect ones work and their brand, I don't think trademarking a commonly used word in the industry, as well as emailing threatening letters to your peers is good business practices. It alienates and draws a line between what is right and what is responsible. There were better ways to go about trying to protect ones work then with those kinds of bullying tactics.
In light of the #FightLikeARomanceReader / #FightLikeARomanceAuthor / #Cockgate controversy, I'm doing a giveaway to support to cause.
What is this all about?
FROM THE COCKTALES ANTHOLOGY WEBSITE:
'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 titicular 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.
I ordered a few copies from Amazon. These books are HUGE! There is over 800 pages, filled with amazing stories by various authors. I love the cause and I wanted to share, so I'm doing a giveaway!!
In the giveaway, I'm offering up to ONE WINNER, a copy of COCKTALES: A Cocky Collective, PLUS a "Fight Like A Romance Reader" mug! Just enter the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win.
