It's time to #GetLoud about Book Stuffing | #FightLikeaRomanceAuthor - Fangirling @HeatherCLeigh, #SLawrence, @SuzanTisdale, @DakotaWillink, & @BSommerland

So this is the first time I feel confident in talking about a heavy topic. And that topic is book stuffing/page stuffers. I have two videos for you. The first one is the video I actually talk about my thoughts on book stuffing and talk about an author who I had reviewed a book stuffed "novel" for previously when I was not familiar with the term. The second video is one that I had created in April 2018, when I just complain about this author tactic yet hadn't known the correct terms for it at that time.

BUT FIRST this is the NEW RULES that Amazon has in regards to "BONUS CONTENT"

My #BookTube Thank You to The Story | @TheStory_here


Serenity Dawn mentions and talked about my BookTube account in her video! SO .. this is a post showing off that video and giving you a meet-and-greet of Serenity Dawn's BookTube Account.

Cocktales by The Cocky Collective | Spreading the Word #cockygate #fightlikearomancereader

Today I'm showing off The Cocky Collective's "Cocktales" and sharing my on-going (at least until I officially read through it all) reading vlog for this anthology.



My Cocktales - Reading Vlog


If you can't see/watch the above video then click here to watch it.

👉 Even though Jess is doing the reading vlog and rating the individual novellas STAY TUNED for her official book review for the full novel once she completes reading it all. 👈



"Cocktales"
by The Cocky Collective

Author's Book Description :
    '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.

    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.

My #BookTube Thank You to Matilda Gothika | @zlatathekitty


Matilda mentions my BookTube account in her video! SO .. this is a post showing off that video and giving you a meet-and-greet of Matilda's BookTube Account.

Who's Getting Cocky Now? Find out here because there is a Rebellion brewing ... | Fangirling #thisishowyouindie, @kneupperwriter, @selfpubwithdale, @BSommerland, & @MistressofReads

I hope I'm not loosing anyone here because of these posts but I feel obligated to share the knowledgeable information (as much as I can keep on top of) about the CockyGate fiasco. It seems a bit crazy to me that we have to keep talking about it because it is not going away ... at least not easily ... mostly because (as Bianca Sommerland calls her) the Trademark Troll doesn't seem to want to drop the issue (her Cocky trademark). So here is more info for you about what else has been going on so Jess can keep you updated ...

First though I want to show you the GOOD that has happened because of this fiasco and it is called #thisishowyouindie! Below is the live twitter feed for that hashtag. 🙂


Okay NOW for the FIASCO, opps! I meant COCKYGATE updates!

Jess is ALL about the #ThisIsHowYouIndie and #AuthorSupport | Fangirling @AuthorEYork, @jessicabfry, @LMBrownAuthor, @eBookBuilders, & @Jenny_Trout

Over the past few days I've seen a lot of author reactions over on twitter about this CockyGate fiasco ... and it is RIGHTFULLY SO ... this is TERRIBLE and should NOT happen for ANY common words. I feel like everyone in the book world NEEDS to be on top of this to some degree so like many people I was VERY happy when I found out that CockyBot was created. And if you want to stay on top of it I say check out their link OR go here to see their feed on my blog.

But what this blog post is TRULY about is my sharing of some new-to-me authors who have decided to be more open about this fiasco that is happening. Also ... be sure to check out Cassie Sharp's "Open Letter to Faleena Hopkins" here. So ... here we go ... and be sure to check out the end of this post to see the video the Trademark Troll had previously posted on her Facebook page but deleted off ...

We're Getting A Bit "Cockier" on #teamfreethecocky | Fangirling @NASTYGALREVIEWS

While I would LOVE to rant about this whole #CockyGate topic because I feel Ms. Hopkins is a very wishy-washy person in her actions and verbiage, as I was saying earlier today. Especially after all the information we were talking about yesterday I can definitely say she has portrayed herself to be an unreliable source for yourself (which is sad). But her lies just keep coming. THEREFORE, I am so happy I found out about NASTY GAL BOOK REVIEWS as they are staying on top of this situation and report it beautifully!!

We're Getting "Cocky" Over Here ... | Fangirling @MistressofReads @BSommerland @SashaWhite @CasSharpAuthor

I would LOVE to report about this "Cocky" talk on my YouTube/BookTube account. However, I know I am not eloquent enough to get all of the facts straight for this fiasco so I am soo happy that I found some wonderful ladies to do so for me!!

Therefore I am THRILLED when I found these videos from Mistress of Reads, Bianca Sommerland, & Sasha White ... please check them out below.

ALSO as I was putting together this blog post I was notified through twitter about another AMAZING blog post that was posted. And because it is soo good and well-written I am sharing Cassie Sharp's open letter below too.

Some of Jessica's Thoughts First ...

Are Goodreads Reviews REALLY for the authors? | And Jessica's Fangirling Anne R. Allen / @annerallen

This morning I was in a Twitter Discussion about "are Goodreads Reviews REALLY for the authors." My standpoint (which will never change no matter what you say) is that any review (good or bad) about the book it is listed as a review for IS FOR THAT AUTHOR too. It is for readers yes, of course BUT it is supposed to be a book review about the authors novel and I wholeheartedly believe that book reviews are always 50% about the reviewer's thoughts and personal issues .. and 50% about the novel itself. I mean a prefect example of this would be my review for Joan Kilby's "The Secret Son." Also, as an author assistant for the past 2 years, I understand that EVERY review matters .. even those over on Goodreads. Therefore, after this morning's discussion, I went on a google search & I saw a LOT of opposing viewpoints. Yet, I found this one that I seem to agree on ALL this author's points & really liked her tips. So, I am deciding to share ...
