Leta Blake Leta Blake's blog:
For the record, no ARCs have been sent out and no one but a reliable and very small group of people has seen the Training Season sequel. Thus any ratings at this point are either a mistake of an inadvertent click or based on nothing but trollery. *shrug* But I suppose trolls are entitled to antic... Read more of this blog post »

Zahav restaurant hummus


I didn’t believe them when they told me, but when I was in Washington, D.C. a few months back, when having dinner with my friends Carol and Joe, they swore that if I stopped at Zahav in Philadelphia on the way back, that I’d have a life-changing experience. While I wish that at least several t...

I was tagged on Facebook to list 15 small things that make me happy.


1. In-jokes with friends, the stupider the better as it gives you warm fuzzes about your shared history.

2. Sticking my face in the cat's warm belly on a cold day.

3. Hearing the Tigers' theme song at the end of a victorious game.

Judging by the soft, blue/gray glow behind the blinds, it was just after dawn when the goddamn cat decided to walk around our bathroom and howl for no goddamn reason.

It sounds like the title of either a SF or maybe a romantic suspense book, Two Words Collide, but it’s actually been my office for the last year or so as I shift my focus of work from pure urban fantasy where the characters are witches, vampires, and Weres, to something a little more mainstream....

I think that Reeve always had a little thing for her, but it never really developed into morebecause 99% of the time they got on each other’s nerves and also, he knew Alex had real feelings for her. So he put her put of his mind and didn’t let himself go there.
