Please Welcome Keta Diablo


Why I wrote Holding on to Heaven . . . 
Hi everyone, and thank you so much for stopping by Dawn’s wonderful site.
Some readers have asked me why I wrote Holding on to Heaven so I thought I’d speak to that here. I’ve always loved history about the Civil War – the battles, the thousands of lives lost and the boundaries that were often crossed when family members choose sides. It wasn’t uncommon to find cousin fighting against cousin or neighbor against neighbor. The Civil War was a deeply personal war for many, and yet in the end, many didn’t know why they were fighting. I can’t think of anything more horrible than to have our country divided over ideals, beliefs or principles to the point we take up arms against our brethren.
Imagine drawing a line across the United States – the top half of the states fight for one side and the bottom for the other. And suppose you had family down in Texas when you live in Wisconsin? I’m sure you can see what the Civil War was one of our darkest times in history.  
Holding on two Heaven is, in essence, about a woman named Lauren McCain who was raised in the deep South and moves to the North just before the war broke out. Her loyalties are divided. She’s fallen in love with a Northerner, carries his child, and yet her father and family hail from North Carolina. Now, toss in the Dakota Sioux uprising in Minnesota at the same time and the entire country is ablaze with fire and terror.
Holding on to Heaven is an emotional story about betrayal, grief, fate and abiding passion. If you like reading about the Civil War, I think you’ll love the story of brothers who love the same woman and yet, love each other too. Oh, yes, and there’s a few twists and turns in the story. There is a happily-for-now ending, but here’s the good news: Dark Night of the Moon, the sequel to Holding on to Heaven was released January 1st! I promise a happily-ever-after for all.
May you all have a blessed Holiday and many intriguing reads find you in the New Year.

Holding on to Heaven

Brothers in love with the same woman -- one the father to her child, the other her husband. An epic historical spanning two generations.

The Civil War has crumbled a Nation, and the Dakota Sioux are on the warpath. While the blazing fires of revolt ravage the countryside, Lauren and Sage McCain are trapped amid the flames of destiny.

Holding on to Heaven is a story of love between two men and a woman, love between siblings, and love that crosses all boundaries and forges all cultures.

  4. Hello ladies, and thanks so much Day Dreaming for hosting me! I love the header on your blog. Makes me want . . . well, never mind.

    Thanks to those who stopped by. I'm late because I just finished the last chapter of DARK NIGHT OF THE MOON. YAY! I sooo enjoyed writing the sequel to Holding On To Heaven. Might be fave so far, but then we're not supposed to pick book faves. Sort of like saying who your favorite child is. A no-no.

    Good luck to everyone in the contest! Who knows, maybe you'll win a FREE book because you were kind enough to stop by on your day of leisure.

    Again, my thanks to Daydrmzzz - you ROCK!

    Namaste, Keta
