I have an appointment. I have that editing job to finish up. I have read through it. I want to check the spelling again, because there were a lot of "alien" names. I want to write up what I thought of the first chapter of "Load the Dice." LMX sent me a chapter in the "Understanding" series. I told her(?) I'd read through that. That's about the priority I will work on things today.
Later (after WhiteSheep's comment): I made it to the appointment. I finished the line editing job. I read through "Load the Dice" again. I looked up Riah's video for the Interlude Press Launch Party: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ft3ZehzwYJg
I am going to do a long quote. Eric, a Dom, and his friend Andy go to a scene party. The host, Ian, says, "I invite only the finest subs. Only one newcomer here tonight, and I invited him special."
The following paragraph is: Ian points over to a dark man about their age, black hair in thick waves, wearing a tight ribbed sweater. He's got the best ass Eric's ever seen -- high, tight, just a little round, as if it was made to fill out pants just right and then spill just a little bit out, while peeling out of them -- but that's about all he can see, the way the guy's facing.
As I said in another entry, I was glad Riah kept that aspect of the source material.
Riah said in her video that Jamie was multi-racial. The video had an echo effect at that point, but I think she said Arab and Vietnamese in the video, that Jamie had a disapproving Muslim father on one side and an Asian grandmother on the other side. She told me Saudi and Vietnamese. She described Jamie as having "sharply tilted" eyes and "darkly tanned skin." I said I was glad that she'd put in some diversity, that few m/m romances had diverse characters. Riah said that diversity was important to her.
I talked to Jen the Proofreading Goddess a little bit. I'm hoping to talk with A., but we'll see what his schedule is like.
Much later: I talked with WhiteSheepCBD for a while. A. later e-mailed to say he'd had to work. That worked out okay, though. Maybe A. and I can talk Sunday. No more episodes of "The Musketeers" for a while, so we can talk earlier than a 10:30 p.m. start.
