Keta (ketadiablo) Hi new friends!

I'm Keta Diablo and I live in the Midwest portion of the US. I'm glad someone started this group -- good idea.

Can everyone introduce themselves and tell us a little about you? Or have you already done that somewhere and I missed it.

I'm a writer of erotica for multi-publishing houses. When I'm not writing, I love to read and garden. I see someone else on here loves animals. I do too and rescued Emma LaPounce from the local shelter last year hours before they were going to put her down. She's very happy in her new home and has been crowned "Queen of the Abode". She loves to lay by my computer mouse while I write. Maybe she takes the word "mouse" literally!

Have a wonderful weekend and I'll be back soon to talk to you. In the meantime, please drop by my web site and enter my contest to win free books. I hold a drawing every month.

Namaste, Keta Diablo

Lauren (djinni) heyhey!

I'm Lauren, and I live in North Jersey. My two loves are my music and my books. And my friends! <3

I love fantasy and scifi, Harry Potter is my favorite. I want to write a really long epic book, but I need a good idea first.

Bookworm Hey, my name is hillary, i live in North Jersey. I'm a book fanatic! I read historical Fiction, Mystery and Fantasy (Faeries and stuff). I'm also a Junior in High School

message 4: by Keta (new)

Keta (ketadiablo) Hi Lauren,

Thanks for your answer. I'm happy to hear you want to write a book. It's a lot of hard work, but alot of fun too.

I write mostly historical, but I did write one fantasy, Dust and Moonlight. I would be happy to answer any of your questions as you begin this journey. Tell me what kind of epic you have in mind.

The best thing to do is read every thing you can about fantasy and sci-fi and see what made the book work. Study it, chapter by chapter and look at how the author constructed her/his characters and plot.

Well, you can get a hold of me if you have any more questions. Nice to talk to you.

Hi Hill,

Nice to meet you. Isn't high school fun? Another New Jersey person. Someone else was just from NJ and posted here.

I look forward to sharing and chatting with all of you in the coming weeks. What's everyone reading now?

Keta Diablo
fantasy and historical author

message 6: by Bookworm (new)

Bookworm I'm reading a historical fiction about Italian Renassance, the main character is Mona lisa or Mondonna Elisabetta, its rly good, its a teen book. To tell you the truth i've had a bad freshman and now Junior year :( (faimly and friends make it that way) but other than that i love it!

message 7: by Bookworm (new)

Bookworm Oh and can you tell me a good book of yours? I'd really like to read one! :)

message 8: by Keta (new)

Keta (ketadiablo) I write erotica, kind of racy, but if you like historical you could look at Decadent Deceptions or Land of Falling Stars, both historical and have had excellent reviews. My fantasy is Dust and Moonlight, a time travel.

Thanks alot for asking. Nice of you. Check them out here:

Decadent Deceptions,

Dust and Moonlight,

Land of Falling Stars, (Once Upon A Time category)

Let me know if you read one so I can get a review from you here on Goodreads.

Best, Keta

Stay safe, Keta

message 11: by Bookworm (new)

Bookworm Haha you too Keta!! ^_^

message 12: by Lauren (new)

Lauren (djinni) Hey keta!

Idk, my favorite books are like Lord of the Rings, Eragon, Harry Potter, stuff that's in another world basically. But it's hard to think of an entire world.

message 13: by Keta (new)

Keta (ketadiablo) I loved Eragon, and the author was so young when he wrote it. I liked the movie too! And loved Vigo in Lord of the Rings! You can do it girl.

message 14: by Lauren (new)

Lauren (djinni) I loved Aragorn too, but my current fav is Faramir. I cry every time I see Return of the King.
Thanks. :)
The Eragon movie though, it changed a lot from the book. Like his palm wasn't even silver.

I write books related to breathing, zen yoga and spirituality.
I also love writing fantasy and have written a number of short stories and am halfway through an epic novel.

I've studied martial arts for nearly 25 years and occasionally perform a Zen Sword Dance.

that's about it for now.

Keta (ketadiablo) Hannah,

Ruby | 62 comments lol yeah mountains are pretty cool, here some of em are covered in snow year round, its soooo pretty in the summer time.

message 30: by Keta (new)

Keta (ketadiablo) Ruby? I thought you were Hannah. Are you friends? Wow this list is really growing and I'm so happy to see that young people are into books. We can thank Stephanie Myers and her Twilight series for that!

You youngsters should go look at my web site and my books when you get a minute. I have a fantasy/time travel out right now that you would love! Called Dust and Moonlight.

Go here to read more about it: And while you're there, girls, enter my contest form to win FREE books. I give them away every month. And sign my guestbook so I know you were there. Thank you KINDLY!

Course I write erotica, so you have to be old enough to read it. (lol)

message 33: by Ruby (new)

Ruby | 62 comments lol Keta, no I've never met Hannah, and yes she brought up the subject of mountains originally. I live in Alaska so mountains aren't exactly new to me.

and sure I'll check out the website. (BTW i read twilight and it was awesome but, I've been reading pretty much since I was born lol)

message 34: by Keta (new)

Keta (ketadiablo) Hi Ruby (love the name)

I'm going to have to use the name "Ruby' as a character in one of my books. Kewl name!

Alaska? That sounds beautiful too. I live in the Midwest and it's been very cold here in the last several months. Now it's starting to warm up. We don't have mountains, but we have thousands of lakes and streams.

SO nice to meet you.
