I have created a dream world for authors. It's a social media network similar to Myspace, but targets the literary world. Authors, readers, publishers, reviewers, bloggers, magazines, newspapers, cover models, graphics designs etc etc. Your profiles are equipped to carry as many URL's as you want. Mine has appx 8 of them. Everything about you can be linked directly to your profile page, you can even blog from it. It will launch in appx 6 days with the host, but it is live at the moment. Once it launches, the address will be Ditterverse.com. As of now, it iswww.ditterverse.yuku.com You can go ahead and set up your profile and browse around. Learn it before it launches. Get your links all lined up on your profile. No more sharing all over different links trying to get things seen. It will all be in one place. Also there are forums set up for tech support on how to's and must reads. There is an According to Ditter page that will run two featured authors of the week, every week. A Genre forum is being set up so readers can click the genre they are looking for and authors and links will be in columns and tagged. Enjoy and take your time. There is no hurry to figure it all out today, as it doesn't officially launch until next week. Thank you and I look forward to helping you any way I can. Look me up and friend me.www.ditterthegreat.u.yuku.com.

Sexy Travis Santiago haunts the walls of his family home. Resigned to being alone, he merely exists in a place between the living and the dead until the frustrating little brunette enters his life and his heart. He can give her what she needs, if she would just believe.
The passion he ignites threatens to consume her, heart and soul, but may not be enough to hold back the nightmares. And Melody can’t possibly hope to spend forever with a man who is already dead.
A Romantica® paranormal erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave
As many of you know, Haunting Melody St. Claire releases tomorrow. I just received the first ARC review and couldn't be more thrilled!
Haunting Melody St. Claire got it's first ARC review!!http://wickedlilpixie.com/2013/05/30/sahara-h-arc-review-haunting-melody-st-claire-by-dawn-montgomery-and-ditter-kellen/
I received this ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I wasn’t expecting a whole lot when I requested this novella, I had read the pair’s previous work FoxFire and while that was fun, it didn’t stick with me as much as this novella. Haunting Melody St. Claire seems like it will be your average girl meets ghost novella, but there is an amazing twist that I won’t share because it will ruin the entire thing. The set-up was actually pretty perfect, I thought that a little too much of the novella was spent with Melody dealing with the fact that there was a ghost in the house, but the rest of the novella more than made up for it, and if I am being too ambiguous, it’s because I cannot spoil the tear-jerking, giant twist that these two authors put into their work.

My name is Ditter Kellen...and I'm an Ellora's Cave author. Most of you know me as Ditterthegreat or According to Ditter in my groups. I have been promoting and reviewing books for quite some time, so it was no surprise to run across Jaid Black on Twitter or Facebook. I've tweeted her, laughed with her and had conversations with her...never knowing who she really was.
Ellora's Cave was a dream come true for me. It's common knowledge among the authors I mingle with, EC is top of the line and desired by many. To be published by them is an honor and I'm proud to carry the name on my books. I've known for some time now that Jaid was the owner of Ellora's Cave. What I didn't know was how she'd built it from the ground up...with 200 dollars.
Women like her are a rare breed and I'm in awe of the determination and strength it took for her to do what she did. This beautiful, brave lady, paved the way and built the foundation for me to do what I do.
I was on the phone last night with a friend and fellow author, who told me the amazing story of how Ellora's Cave was born. Why had I never heard this before? I mean seriously, it's huge. We know who invented cars, who wrote Twilight, Starred in Lethal weapon, killed the president...hell, we even know who invented the toilet...but one woman creates the first e-book publishing house, making it possible for erotic romance to finally have a voice...and she's not recognized world wide?
I'm sure a lot of you reading this are aware of how it happened, but I wasn't. She was the first...The original...The beginning of it all. I for one would like to say, thank you, Jaid Black...for having the guts to live your dream....And giving me the chance to live mine.
I snagged this video off YouTube. Please watch it. It's a briefing of her story...It's interesting, informing and humorous. Kudos to her!
