Blog Tour " Where the rain is made by: keta Diablo

Sep 17, 2010

• Hi friends,
Welcome to the blog tour for Where The Rain Is Made. Keta and I are glad you stopped by.

~JJBC On your website you break your backlist into two categories: "erotic" and "m/m" romances. Which do you prefer to write? Is one genre easier to write than the other?

~KD I’ll say the male/male novellas are quicker because they’re not full-length novels. The erotic romance is almost always full novels. And there’s more research with the historical romance. I enjoy writing both because of the variety and the different lengths, but if you really pinned me down I’d have to say I’m really fond of reading and writing historical romance.

~JJBC What is the best book you've read in 2010? What upcoming 2010 book release are you most looking forward to reading?

~KD I absolutely loved The Spymaster’s Lady by Joanna Bourne and hope to get to the other books in the series soon. I think she’s a wonderful writer with an amazing grasp of plot and character depth. Like many authors, I don’t have a lot of time to read so I have to be very selective in what I choose. I’ll often read the reviews and ask around if I’m on the lookout for a new book. My TBR pile AND TBR list is huge. I still have book sitting on my nightstand that I received last Christmas and haven’t had the time to open them yet. I know, pathetic.

~JJBC Who is your favorite author?

~KD Again, this a hard question to answer. I wouldn’t choose a favorite, but some of the authors I read are Helen Kirkman and Joanna Bourne. I love Bourne’s The Spymaster’s Lady. I also love a few older novels, To Kill A Mockingbird and Windflower, which I read about once a year.

~JJBC Do you hear from your readers and what do they ask?

~KD Thank goodness, yes. I love hearing from readers. Mostly they tell me how much they enjoyed the book. I haven’t had any write to me and complain, but I suppose they wouldn’t. Sometimes they say, “I have this great idea for a story. Can I send it to you?” And I must tell them that I have so many stories in my head now, I won’t live long enough to publish them all.

~JJBC What are you passionate about these days?

~KD Homeless people, women and children who have no medical insurance. You don’t even want to get me going on those issues. Why are we the most power country in the world, yet we have one out of eight children who go to bed hungry in the US? I don’t understand it. And I really can’t tolerate the thought. There’s no excuse for it.

~JJBC What do you do to unwind and relax?
~KD Read, garden and spend far too much time at my local animal shelter trying to figure out a way to bring them all home. I can’t, of course, but I donate items, food and money to them, do what I can to help out. I love animals and think they’re so accepting of humans. My cat, Emma, doesn’t care if I forgot my deodorant this morning. She loves me just as I am.

~JJBC Do you have any suggestions for beginning writers? If so, what are they?

~KD Read everything you can get your hands on and then plop your butt in the chair and write. I don’t care if it’s the worse first draft you’ve ever seen. You can always fix it. There are many times I delete entire paragraphs and think a third grader can write better than me. But you can’t quit, you have to keep on writing and one day it will all come together.


About Where The Rain Is Made:

A decadent savage has captured Francesca DuVall and her brother, Marsh. Now she must spend every waking moment planning an escape. However, she didn’t count on the powerful draw of desire interfering with her scheme in the camp of the brutal Cheyenne dog soldiers.
Ethan Gray is a curator at a national museum . . . most of the time, but when he travels through time to help his beloved People he becomes Meko, leader of the most revered and feared tribe of the plains.

Although their worlds are decades apart Meko can’t resist the dark beauty he kidnapped during a raid. He has many battles to fight but none he wants to win more than the one that will capture Cesca’s heart forever. From the windswept plains of Colorado and the harsh life of a Dog Soldier to the placid life of a curator their love was fueled by passion and kindled by destiny.
