Romance Writers of America and the Racism Issue; Robert Pattinson Will Do Porn If The Batman Sucks; Ryan Field Books

Romance Writers of America and the Racism Issue

Earlier this week I posted about what’s going on with RWA (Romance Writers of America) and romance author, Courtney Milan, with regard to racism. I’ve been following the story for my own personal reasons because issues like racism often go hand in hand with homophobia, which I’ve been dealing with all my life…especially in book publishing.

With that said, I’m linking to this opinion piece to spread awareness to people who haven’t been following the RWA issues with regard to racism. It’s well written, explains everything clearly, and it’s convincing. They even mention writers who hire sensitivity readers, for obvious reasons.

When Courtney Milan was quietly sanctioned by her industry group for pointing out another writer’s racism, she spoke up. And now everyone can see the problem.

Here’s the link to read the entire piece in full. I highly suggest reading this. We all need to know more about it. 

Robert Pattinson Will Do Porn If The Batman Sucks

You have to love Robert Pattinson for this. And frankly, I don’t think he’ll be doing porn any time soon. I have a feeling he’s going to nail The Batman role. I’m not even part of his huge fandom. I just think he knows how to do things the right way. There are a few actors out there that I really love for these reasons. Another one is Graham Rogers, who’s in Atypical and The Kominsky Method.

Here’s how Pattinson replied to a question about The Batman possibly being a flop (which it won’t be).

So what will he do if his Batman bombs at the box office? “Porn,” he says, grinning. “But art-house porn.”

You can read it all, here. It’s a nice piece that also mentions his new film, The Lighthouse. I have to check that one out.
