Author Interview The River Leith


I’m hosting an interview today for the book tour for gay romance “The River Leith”. Enjoy the interview.

1) What’s the hardest part of being an author?

Carving out the time to get the work done is definitely one of the hardest aspects of being an author. I’m a full-time employee, a wife, and a mother, so making time to write is always difficult. Writing requires a lot of alone time and getting that space isn’t easy with so many additional responsibilities on my shoulders.
2) Can you give us a short synopsis of The River Leith?
The River Leith is an exploration of the always fun and romantic amnesia trope. I wanted to explore the staying power of love. Can it exist outside of actual knowledge of another person and outside of any mental story line about who that person is and what your history together might be?
3) Is this part of a series, or stand-alone?
A stand-alone book.
4) How many hours per day do you spend writing?
Some days I spent twelve hours writing and other days zero hours. It depends on how I can fit it in with the rest of my life.
5) What is your favorite book in the same genre as yours?
I’m a huge fan of Ginn Hale’s Rifter Series. (Ravishan! I love you!!) But I’m not sure it counts as being in my genre since it is a fantasy novel and I generally don’t write that sort of thing.
6) What are you working on now?
I’m working on a book titled Smoky Mountain Dreams. It’s a contemporary m/m romance about a failed country music musician who is now working at a country music theme park inspired by Dollywood and how he finds his way to a new definition of success, a new idea of what love looks like, and a new family. I hope to have a first draft completed very soon.

The River Leith

The-River-Leith-web-copyTitle: The River Leith

Author: Leta Blake

Genre: Gay Romance

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After an injury in the ring, amateur boxer Leith Wenz wakes to discover his most recent memories are three years out of date.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.
