“Leta Blake has given us a compelling love story” Geoffrey Segebarth’s review of Training Season #mmromance #gay

“Leta Blake has given us a compelling love story that carries the reader through both rural Montana and New York City. (I had to remind myself that I was really here in St. Petersburg.) It is beautifully written and it portrays the harsh demands of top level figure skating. Another great feature of the novel was the absence of any villainous or homophobic characters. Training Season is a fairly long novel and this reader shed tears on a number of occasions. It you’re interested in a love story that enwraps you in the worlds of both Matty and Rob this is a sure bet.”

“I rarely rate a book as highly as this one.” Ron Caron’s Review of The River Leith #mmromance #gay

“Leith and Zach are flawed, but are easy to love. And you find yourself pulling for them at every step of this page turner. I rarely rate a book as highly as this one.”

via Goodreads | Ron Caron Springvale, ME’s review of The River Leith.

Memory is everything. After an injury in the ring, amateur boxer Leith Wenz wakes to discover his most recent memories are three years out of date. Unmoored and struggling to face his new reality, Leith must cope anew with painful revelations about his family. His brother is there to support him, but it’s the unfamiliar face of Zach, a man introduced as his best friend, that provides the calm he craves. Until Zach’s presence begins to stir up feelings Leith can’t explain. For Zach, being forgotten by his lover is excruciating. He carefully hides the truth from Leith to protect them both from additional pain. His bottled-up turmoil finds release through vlogging, where he confesses his fears and grief to the faceless Internet. But after Leith begins to open up to him, Zach's choices may come back to haunt him. Ultimately, Leith must ask his heart the questions memory can no longer answer.

The River Leith Is A Night Owl Reviews Top Pick Read! #mmromance #gay

“This is a fantastically emotional tale that gives a wonderful portrait of a love story that has to flower once again after it is virtually destroyed. The intriguing insights provided by the video entries that Zach has made and the gradual revelation of pieces of Leith’s past makes this a compelling read and the yummy sensual scenes are nicely balanced by the intensely emotional interactions. This is the first story I have read by this author but I will definitely be looking for others.”

Not The Boss of Me #history #slang

I love research. Seriously, it is one of my favorite things about being a writer. Because I wanted to make sure that this phrase was used during the time period I was working on, I stumbled on this, and it just thrilled me to know this slang has gone back so far!

Though the phrase “you’re not the boss of me” may owe some of its current popularity to the TMBG song, this bit of rebellious kid-speak has been kicking around since the late 19th century.

When I checked up on this a few years ago for the American Dialect Society mailing list, I was able to trace “you’re not the boss of me” back to 1953 using then-available digitized newspaper databases. Now, thanks to the wonders of Google Book Search, it’s easy to take it back another 70 years:

His sister was going to put her arms around him, but he whirled, and facing her with a very angry face, snapped — “Let me alone; you are not the boss of me now, I tell you, and I’m going to do as I please.”
—”As by Fire,” The Church, New Series Vol. III, 1883, p. 70
