Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.

If you're like me, you love words, unusual words, funny-sounding words and words you've never read or even heard of before.

This week, I chose seven words that are very unusual. I didn't know what any meant when I came across them. Below, I've listed these words. (Definitions are below at the end of this post). Tr

Keta Happy New Year everyone!

Popping in to tell you about my latest release coming to a Kindle & Nook near you in January (this month)! Dark Night of the Moon is a paranormal shifter novel based on Native American lore. If you read my book Where The Rain Is Made (nominated for a Bookie Award) you'll love DNOTM!

About Dark Night of the Moon (sequel to Holding On To Heaven):

Creed Gatlin flees to Arizona intent on eradicating the haunting memories of his brother’s wife. Brand Gatlin, presumed dead, resurfaces after a long absence and with his re-emergence, the destinies of those he loves is altered forever.

In a land rife with war and danger, Sage must travel to the village of her husband’s People. There, she is reunited with Crooked Back, the ancient healer. On the long trek back to Full Circle, devious plots are underfoot and peril lurks around every corner for Sage, Lauren and Peter Pa.

Dark Night of the Moon will take you on an unforgettable journey of war, violence, overwhelming grief, and finally, love.

Keta The wonderful Author Island is hosting a Cyber Launch party today for my historical/paranormal Sojourn With A Stranger. Want to win books? Stop by and say hi, leave your name.

Hope to see you there, Keta

AuthorIsland Super congrats on the release of SOJOURN WITH A STRANGER!!!

Today on , we're celebrating Keta Diablo's latest release, an erotic paranormal historical called SOJOURN WITH A STRANGER.


Penniless when she arrives in Norfolk, her mother and father drowned at sea, Raine Brinsley longs to return home to her grandfather in Maine. When Derek Stafford, owner of a large plantation, offers a solution to her dilemma, she's stunned, if not outraged. She'd prefer to fulfill the contract to have his child and forget about him and his self-serving scheme. If only she could dispel the passion he's awakened in her.

Derek Stafford's only wish is to father an heir to Stafford House, thus securing his future. He didn't count on the Scottish lass with green eyes interfering with his well-laid plan. After one night in her arms, guilt, not to mention the loss of his soul, becomes his penance. He'll do anything to win her back, anything to quench the hunger tormenting his soul.

Learn more at

Keta Tracey wrote: "Did you ever manage to get into Belladonna. So I have to ask, of the books that you have written, which one would you suggest I read first? "

Hi Tracey, hope your New Year has started off great!

I have been reading Belladonna. Was just telling my mom about it last night and trying to explain to her what it is about. It's going better now because I'm making a concerted effort to concentrate (lol). My mom just said she thought my book, The Sin Eater's Prince, was deep, and I said, "If you think my book is deep, you should read Belldonna." Bishop has so many characters going and names for the characters, The Eater of the World, It, Bridges, Landscapers, etc, but I'm working on it as I read.

About my books -- it's hard to recommend without knowing what you like. I write in three categories, erotic romance (male.female and happily ever after), male/male (usually contemporary and sexually GRITTY)and then some paranormal in both above and not as gritty.

Decadent Deceptions is a male/female erotic romance and finaled in the prestigious 2008 Molly Contest. The best thing to do if you have the time is go to my web site and click on the snippets of the reviews and read the blurbs. I think you would be able to pick out which one would suit you that way. I have received many five star reviews for both Decadent Deceptions and Land of Falling Stars, but then my male/male are best-sellers at Phaze and All Romance E-books. You have to like male/male though. I write what the publishers ask for, and that's sexually graphic and explicit for the male/male. Not for everyone.

Here is my main web site:

And thank you so much for taking the time to post a note and ask me. I so appreciate it and care very much what readers think of my books.

Hugs, Keta
