Check out Power Play, coming from Riptide publishing soon!


Give me six months, and I'll give you the world.

Brandon McKinney has scraped and sacrificed for what little in life he’s ever had. Though it’s been fifteen years since he escaped his father’s abuse, the damage remains. Trust seems as far out of reach as his dream of becoming an architect, and though he’s come to accept being gay, he can’t deny the shame and confusion he feels at other urges—the deeply-repressed desire to submit.

Jonathan Watkins is a self-made Silicon Valley billionaire whose ex-wife took half his money and even more of his faith. Comfortable as a Dominant but wary of being hurt again, he resorts to anonymous pickups and occasional six-month contracts with subs seeking only a master, not a lover.

When a sizzling back-alley encounter cues Jonathan in to Brandon’s deep-seated submissive side, he makes the man an offer: Give me six months of your life, and I’ll open your eyes to a whole new world. Brandon doesn’t care about that; all he wants is the three million dollars Jonathan’s offering so he can buy the construction company he works for. But he soon learns that six months on his knees is no easy feat, and shame and pride may keep him from all he ever wanted—and all he never dreamed he had any right to have.

What G. A. Hauser has to say...

Reasons To Fight

In the news I heard something good for a change. Prop 8 in California was deemed unconstitutional. Good. That should settle it.
But no- it hasn't.
There are individuals who want to 'fight' this ruling.
Okay...inhale-exhale don't scream. I ask myself daily what are the reasons for their fight. Since I write about same sex love, the absurdity of this crusade against love and marriage has me more than puzzled. It has me furious.
When I look around the world via every media outlet you can imagine, I see so many wrongs that need to be righted. Serious problems that could really use some help. Being an animal advocate I would love to see the venomously rabid anti-gay marriage dipshits, go all out to save endangered species and habitat. Or how about being an activist for human rights in countries where people are being murdered by insane dictators. Or perhaps we should feed hungry children, give money to AIDS and cancer research, wave signs and banners to stop victims of domestic violence or gang violence.
Maybe the cash that continues to flow into the coffers of anti-same sex marriage funds could be better used to rebuild homes of disaster victims, aid the Red Cross or perhaps some of their effort and illogical screaming and stomping would be better served to help clean up the air, water, litter...good Lord, people- I would rather see them on the side of the road with litter bags picking up trash. At least that's productive and helpful.

These anti-marriage activists make the occupy anarchists seem intelligent by comparison. At least the anarchists don't want to restrict civil rights. Human rights. Basic rights.

Really? All that time, money and effort can't be better spent? All the energy and ranting about love and marriage can't be redirected to something that actually will improve the quality of life?

We must have a logical reason to fight. A reason that is not religion bound. Religion based decisions go against basic rights. Don't get me going on the religious extremists in this world. I'll become Lewis Black and my head would explode. But if you need to invent reasons that are purely self-serving in your pseudo-pious mind, invent reasons to give to people who are in need. To fight for animal rights, to clean up a community.
Stop wasting so much of everyone's time, resources and energy to restrict love.
You will not prevent people from loving each other, living together, or sharing their property with each other.
All you will do is show how ignorant and intolerant you are.

Get off the hate bandwagon and stop hiding behind religion for your rationality.
Let everyone have the right to be happy.
Talk about insane? Since when are straight people the role model for marriage? The irony there isn't lost on anyone. And now there's a fight for legalized polygamy?

You want to give me a reason to fight? Keep trying to stop love between two men or two women. That alone gives me reasons to fight.

Be safe out there.

Crossroads novellas by Keta Diablo

Crossroads, Novella 1

Handsome ex-cop Frank McGuire is on a quest to locate his dead partner's missing son and uses his ability to commune with the dead to assist him. Rand Brennan has an identity issue, exacerbated due to the death of his father. Hoping to find himself, Rand drops out of college, takes to the streets, and doesn't realize he's embroiled in duplicity and murder. In order to save Rand, Frank must confront the nefarious killers and, confront his long-suppressed feelings for Rand. Elements of intense sexual activity

"Ms. Diablo carefully orchestrates the scenes to include just the right amount of fear, stimulation and eroticism. The reader is instantly driven to not only see where the characters end up but also to find out the identity of the Black Rail Killer. The reveal is not what you think and that makes it so much more enticing." You Gotta Read – Our Top Rating! 5 Stars

There’s no one who can deliver snark like Frank McQuire, ex-cop turned private investigator. Here he’s finally found Rand (living on the streets) and followed him back to his studio apartment. Frank’s intent is to scare him, but things get carried away once he sees the man who’s always made his heart race.

Frank holstered the gun, grabbed Rand by the hair and shoved him toward the wall, face first. A fine bead of sweat had broken out on Rand’s forehead and his hands were clenched tightly at his sides. “You call me sir when you address me.”

Yes, sir.”

What’s in the box you carried home tonight if not drugs?”

You followed me?” Rand cranked his neck around to look at him.
Frank pushed his face into the wall and kicked his feet out until his legs were spread wide. “Put your hands on the wall, palms flat. You even twitch, I’ll drop you quicker than butter melting in a pan, got that?”

I ain’t got no drugs, man—I mean, sir.”

Such a smart, pretty boy and a quick learner,” Frank said.

Acutely aware of the smooth, tanned skin of his shoulders and back, mere inches from him, and the sinewy muscles of his forearm stretched out to the wall, Frank sucked in a quiet breath. To heighten the tension, Frank put his hand on his back and snapped the elastic band of his briefs. “You know what they do to little boys in prison?”

Rand shivered, whether from the threat of prison or the stranger behind him,
Frank didn’t know. “Sir, if someone told you I had drugs, they lied. I swear I don’t.”

Frank rolled the boxers from his hips and left them hugging his knees. Kick ’em off. Now!”

Four novellas in the BEST-SELLING series CROSSROADS. This passage is from Novella 1.


Crossroads Revisited, Novella 2, Paranormal Gay Fiction

Serial Killer. Suspense. Paranormal. GHOSTS. Frank McGuire is beginning to think the City has become a melting pot for serial killers. Another maniac is stalking the streets, only this time the deviant isn't tracking Goth girls, but gay college students. Rumors surface that put Frank's life in jeopardy, and somehow he must protect Rand from the carnage about to unfold. What he didn't count on was Rand becoming the killer's next victim. Elements: Scenes of intense sexuality

"This book is a must have! If you read Crossroads and loved it as much as I did then you need to get your hands on a copy of Crossroads Revisited now! It’s just as good and even better than the first. Diablo delivers STEAM -- hot, sexy and mysterious male/male erotic romance novel that will have you panting. I simply couldn’t stop reading." Talk About My Favorite Authors – 5 Stars
Crossroads Showdown, Novella 3, Paranormal Gay Fiction

Mystery Suspense. Thriller. PARANORMAL. Tough PI, Frank McGuire, attempts to help the FBI locate three abducted children from a small town in West Virginia. While channeling his inner spirit for assistance, he mistakenly calls forth a ghost. As Frank races against time to locate the missing girls, he receives help from the most unlikely of sources. To complicate matters, Rand has decided it’s time Frank commit to their relationship -- or run the risk of Rand being gone when he returns. Elements of intense sexuality.

"The third book in the trilogy is Crossroads Showdown. Another killer is on the loose and once again Frank pulls out all the stops using his power to communicate with the dead. He channels spirits to help him find the person taking little girls. High powered and breathtaking suspense, this third in the series carries the most drama and action. Crossroads Series: Three dynamic books that carry elements of suspense and romance. Coming from Diablo, this is one killer combination." Book Junkie, 5 Stars

Crossroads Shadowland, Novella 4, Paranormal (ghosts) Gay Fiction

Frank must travel to Louisiana to solve another missing persons' case. This time, Rand insists on accompanying Frank to get a hands-on introduction to the PI business. Evil forces are at work in the bayou. Frank battles a centuries' old ghost and races against time to save two innocent young men from eternal damnation. Rand gets caught in vortex of prejudice when he encounters a sinister duo bent on violence against gays. Sinister machinations converge in a maelstrom of retribution and hate. Frank must pull out all the stops to save the young men and the man who holds his heart.

Keta Diablo's Crossroads: Shadowland was an incredible story. Rand and Frank are so well developed they feel like old friends. The plot leaves you with the chills. You experience true evil and then relief when good intervenes. Hot passion and spine-tingling danger combine with the gratification and sorrow at the end to produce a tale that will continue to haunt you even after you're done reading. We can only urge Keta Diablo to finish Book Five so we can see what happens next." CataNetwork/Sensual Reads, 5 Stars - TOP REVIEWER PICK
