I haven't done as much editing today -- or yesterday -- as I had hoped. I drove to my parents' house yesterday, and for various reasons, that took longer than expected. Then, this morning and this afternoon, I worked on my next At the Back Fence segment for All About Romance. This time, I'm writing about beta heroes (often referred to as the kind, gentler heroes), but I'm trying to use different attacks on the question of beta heroes. I will also be writing a segment on gamma heroes, who some readers refer to as "cuddly alphas." Other readers don't think gamma heroes exist -- they think it's a term readers invented because they were embarrassed to admit that they like alpha heroes, who after all, are often not considered "PC."

By the way, I think alpha heroes get a lot of undeserved flak. One thing I realized while writing an earlier ATBF (the one called Vikings & Knights & Indians, Oh My!) is that it's often not the alpha hero who is the problem, it's the fact that he is so often linked with a wimpy heroine. The best stories throw alpha heroes together with strong heroines. I guess you could say that both Gorok and Wulf are both alphas, even if Gorok submits to Wulf in the bedroom -- that's part of what Wulf likes about him, and I think that makes their relationship something different. (Well besides little things like Gorok being a gay barbarian on an island of gay mages...)
