I was very sleepy, but I took minutes. The program after lunch was on putting the garden to bed in the fall.
When I got home, I lay down for an hour or so.
I got an editing job to do, which I will work on tonight and tomorrow.
I did a post about the third episode of Load the Dice on Tumblr. I said that the great majority of m/m romances had white protagonists. It's my impression that if erotica has people of color, they are usually fetishized for their color. It's a nice change for a book to have a love interest who is a man of color, but has his own personality and is not fetishized for his skin color and eye shape. Jamie (not!Blaine) is half-Saudi and half-Vietnamese. PaperMoon likes BDSM romances, and romances with Asian protagonists. I recommended the book to him. I don't remember if I directly e-mailed Biyuti, but she'll likely see my Tumblr posts. I think I owe her an e-mail. I definitely owe TallCR and Dennis Stone e-mails.
I chatted with Riah for a while.
I chatted with WhiteSheepCBD for a while. I looked to see if medievalpoc, who I follow anyway, had anything on Porthos. They did. http://medievalpoc.tumblr.com/search/Porthos It seems like the ideal match to one of their points, that historical fiction based in Europe doesn't have to have all white characters.
I chatted with Codeman a bit, including about representation. I said how Callie would really like asexual representation. I said that in my perception, sci-fi shows tend to have characters who could be read as ace, and sometimes crime dramas, too. Codeman agreed.
I should really get a race tag, but it seems presumptuous.
