He’s Handsome, He’s Ace, He’ll Punch You in the Face: Ezra Toth, EZRA TOTH!

The title of today’s post is based off a line from one of my favorite movies, A Knight’s Tale, I couldn’t find that scene as a gif so here’s another scene that made me chuckle.

It has been brought to my attention that I have done little to call attention to one of the more unique aspects of my book. That aspect being that there’s no romance. Not for the Main Character at least. Not a single iota of love interest for Ezra. Quite the opposite, there is a complete and total absence of romantic feeling exhibited by Ezra Toth anywhere in the book. Why, you ask?

Because he is Ace. An abbreviated form of the official designation of Asexual as it is called within the LGBTQ+ community, this is the category in which people with little to no interest in relationships go. Now, just like anything else in this world, an Asexual doesn’t fall into a neat little box. There is a spectrum upon which people who identify this way fall.

However, I am in no way equipped to educate you on this subject as I am not ace but here are some lovely references if you would like to educate yourself on the subject. It is, after all, Pride Month, so why not learn about someone else with a different point of view?

  1. One of the reasons that I enjoyed your book so much is that it was not consumed by Romance. So many times I start reading a book with a good premise and great promise. Then Romance seems to take over, and the book is no longer driven by events and plot development seems to be displaced by angst. It takes a very deft hand to successfully merge Romance and SF or Fantasy.
