Anthology Review: Naughty Brits by Sarah MacLean and more

The Faerie Queen’s review I won’t lie… I got this anthology for Sarah MacLean’s story. I also have to be honest and say it’s been a few months since I read the book, so you’re about to get the lasting impressions review. Anthologies can be a hit or miss situation for me. I don’t think they’re (typically) as heavily edited, and some stories are naturally going to work better for me than others. This was certainly the case for Naughty Brits. As a whole, I did enjoy this collection. It did something I particularly love to find: all of the stories were connected in a way. A single event tied everything together, and small moments in one story affected the plot in another. Once I figured out the connection, I looked forward to seeing how each subsequent tale fit into the collective narrative. But let’s break things down, story by story. Sarah […]

Cover Reveal: Cocktales by The Cocky Collective, a #cockygate anthology!

So you may have heard of a bit of a scandal recently in Romancelandia. A certain author thought she had the right to trademark the word “cocky” in romance novel titles, to which I say I will never read her books because wow, what a stuck-up bitch. #sorrynotsorry. It was all in an effort to protect her brand, but I think we can all agree she’s tanked her reputation in the process. Anyway, a lot of fabulous authors have banded together to bring you… Cocktales! Behold the striking cover, and scroll down to see all the amazing authors contributing to the anthology. Plus, you can start preordering now! The cover! About the book 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 […]

Review: Secrets in the Shadows, a Shifter Anthology

The Faerie Queen’s review Anthologies are always a risk for me, especially when published independently. The last one I tried was a disaster, with no proofreading and only half-baked ideas. Writing short stories can often be tougher than writing novels, as you have less time to get the characters, world, and plot together. But I do try to pick up an anthology from time to time, especially when delving into a genre I haven’t read in a while, as it’s a way to almost play catch up with the genre, plus it’s a great way to get to know some new authors. That’s why I gave this one a try. No, I didn’t read all of the stories. I’m a big believer in putting down books you don’t enjoy, and that applies to anthologies. If I wasn’t clicking with the story a couple chapters in, I moved on. In fact, […]
