We’re less than 2 months away from the 1st birthday of #BodymindsReimagined. Right now the book has a 4.75 rating on @goodreads & 5 stars on @amazon. I would love to see a few more reviews up in the next month. If you’re read it & loved it, please submit a review!
Ugh if *you’ve* read it. This new phone and me are having issues.

Can I instead write an article about how the concept of guilty pleasures in based in classism, racism, & sexism instead? Because “low brow” often means poor/working class, racialized or feminized things? How bout that article?

Further, half the things people are replying about—sci-fi (my own research), reality TV & gaming—are things people do actual real research on already.
I also feel like this article concept is another way of performing that academics can’t embrace pleasure, that work can not be pleasurable. I say fuck that and read @adriennemaree’s new book Pleasure Activism next month when it drops.

Alright yall, #2019 is the year I speak more things into existence, so I’m just gonna say it: @HugoAwards nominations are open. My book #BodymindsReimagined is eligible for Best Related Work as an academic work on speculative fiction. Praying someone who can nominate sees this.
#BodymindsReimagined is an accessible academic text from @DukePress on (dis)ability, race & gender in black women’s speculative fiction like that of @OctaviaEButler, @nkjemisin & @Nalo_Hopkinson. Twitter, do your thing & bring me a #Hugo nomination for Best Related Work. 🤞🏾🤞🏾🤞🏾
Need more evidence? Here’s an unsolicited @goodreads review in which the person says they got a date after telling someone about my book. So I’m not saying reading & nominating #BodymindsReimagined will get you dates but I’m not saying that’s NOT what will happen either...
