Tuesday so far

I turned the computer off at 10:30 p.m.  I tried going to bed at 11:30 p.m., but once I was down I was wide awake.  I got up around midnight and read for an hour, rereading one of B.A. Tortuga's Dreamspinner Press books.  Her Dreamspinner books have plot.  I don't think it took me long to get to sleep once I went to bed at 1:00 a.m. or so.  I had taken Benedryl at 11:00 p.m., but I guess it takes a while to kick in.  It had worn off enough that I woke at 7:00 a.m., but I went back to bed and slept until 10:30 a.m.

S.M. had written me with her additions to the October minutes.  I knew if I e-mailed the minutes, garden club members would get back to me with additions.  I don't mind too much from S.M., because I knew she'd have additions, but I think J.G. will mind.

I corresponded a little with R.A. Steffan about the Horse Mistress series.  It's got unusual menage and gender dynamics.  It has a warrior who's a dominant character, an eunuch who is submissive, and a character assigned female at birth who more often feels like a man and has been presenting as male for the last few years.  Like I noted in my review, I liked that the characters had jobs, and spent a good part of the book doing their jobs.  You don't get that that much in a romance, or at least not the kinds I read.

I texted a bit with WhiteSheepCBD.

Later: I finished The Articles of Release.  There was an update to "50 Shades of Purple" and one to the latest fic in the Sweetest Thing series, and I read those chapters.

I looked on Goodreads to see which books were in the Roughstock series.  I had a lot of the m/m ones.  Several were out of print.  I looked on ARe and B.A. Tortuga's website to try to figure it all out.  Along the way, I saw that apparently B.A. has a lot of books published by Resplendence Publishing.  Also Totally Bound has split off their GLBT books into Pride Publishing imprint.  It looks like the Roughstock books are being republished there.  Sean Michael has a series there, too, the Beer & Clay series.  I had read the first one.  Sean Michael has really diversified.  He (they?) wrote so much for Torquere.  Now it's all different publishers.

Later still: I read Almost by Sean Michael, and a couple of short stories by B.A. Tortuga.  I read a novella she'd co-written with Julia Talbot.  Kent became Kurt a couple of times.  I most likely would have caught that.  It was still a very good story.  All three of them have similar writing styles, but I enjoy the stories.  They're not high literature, but they're fun and entertaining.
