000 Caris Roane - Author Photo 2About

Hi, Everyone! Caris Roane here! I’m a NY Times Bestselling Author and I write super-sexy paranormal romance books designed to be as much an adventure as a soul-satisfying experience.  With every book I write, I try to give a taste of real life, despite the fact that I’m conjuring up hunky vampire warriors.  You’ll come away engrossed in the lives of my tortured heroes as they wage war, as they make love, and as they answer the tough questions of life in terms of purpose, eternity, and how to raise a family! I began my career with Kensington Publishing writing Regency Romance as Valerie King. In 2005, Romantic Times Magazine honored me with a career achievement award in Regency Romance. I’ve published thirty-seven paranormal romances to-date, some self-published and some for St. Martin’s Press! I’ve also branched out into Contemporary Romance with A SEDUCTIVE PROPOSITION!

More from Caris:  On a Personal Note

I was ten when I first watched an old movie version of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE and loved it! Movies led to books, which led to writing and after a good long while, publishing.  I wrote sweet Regency romance for Kensington for 19 years and recently fell in love with paranormal, although I’ve always had a thing for vampires. I currently write paranormal romance for St. Martin’s Press but I self-publish as well. Building an online platform has been an enormous but rewarding challenge. I think all the changes in publishing will alter how authors approach the business going forward and I for one am thrilled to have so many options.

I’ve enjoyed vampire lore for a very long time and years ago, under the pseudonym Valerie King, I wrote a Regency vampire novella for Kensington that prompted a fan to tell me she hoped it would be made into a movie! How’s that for an accolade?!? But that was long before there was such a thing as a ‘Paranormal’ market…and for all that time vampires have been in my blood! Yes…pun intended, or…don’t I wish!

Some of my favorite writers include Gena Showalter, Lara Adrian, Sherrilyn Kenyon, and JR Ward. If you’ve read and loved these authors as I have, then you can guess that my Guardians of Ascension series is centered around powerful warrior vampires and an ongoing battle between good-and-evil.

In addition to these authors, other favorites are: Laurell K. Hamilton who created probably my all-time favorite vampire in Jean-Claude, non? I also love Patricia Brigg’s paranormal work and I’m hoping one day she’ll develop vampire Stefan who has a wonderfully dark aura and who seems as captivated with Mercy as her werewolves are. Kresley Cole wrote one of my favorite vampires in Sebastien.

And now, have a wonderful day and an even better night! For more information about my books, keep scrolling! Live the fang!

  1. Whens the release date for book seven, Luken’s Story, in the series Guardian Of Ascension?

    Also, frankly, I find your books compelling. I know to read it on my free days, due to the fact I will sit for hours until I finish it. I have the need to complete it in one day, I just love the series. I hope you write for every warrior or even Endelles love past would be very alluring. YOu’re a great writer and I hope you expand this series. 🙂

  2. Caris,

    It was lovely meeting you at the Indie Convention. I am going to be contacting all the authors I met. One, Simon wants to share photos with the authors so we will include the links once he gets those loaded.

    You may not have known, but BTS Book Reviews is covering the convention in our November issue and that is why Simon took so many photos. We have a great one of you and H.D.

    Two, I want to follow up with the authors and make sure they know about all the different promotional opportunities we offer, including free ones.

    Finally, I will be looking through the books I collected to find authors that we may feature in a future issue. So drop me a note so that I have your email.

    PS: I hope you had a great time in Nashville and hopefully you made it to Gaylord!!

    Myra Nour

    • Lovely, meeting you as well, Myra! And I had a wonderful time in Nashville. HD Thomson and I toured around the area on Sunday and ‘got lost’ a few times, which turned out to be the best of everything, because we saw back-country and met the locals! Awesome! We never did make it to the Gaylord, but we did drive by The Hermitage and got a video of a few deer and turkeys facing off – Priceless!

      Looking forward to getting to know you better!

      Hugs,
      Caris

  3. I just finished Born In Chains. I LOVED IT!!!!!. Can’t wait until Lucian’s story, I’m going to tell all my friends about your new series. Keep up the good work.

  4. One more question. Will embrace the magic be released in mmpb. I have in my book collection embrace the darkness. So I truly want the second and so forth book released in my collection. If the series is to be continued in electronic form in I will donate the book to the library and call it kills. I so do not want to that, however I only read paper written books. Thanks again. Tf.

    • Teresa,
      All my Indie work, like the Blood Rose series, will eventually be in paperback form but strictly print-on-demand. This only means that they won’t show up in bookstores or libraries but can be purchased from an online retailer like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. So, the answer to your question is yes, EMBRACE THE MAGIC will one day be in paperback. The problem is that it may take some time…

  5. Hello! I’m LOVING the Guardian’s of Ascension series!! I’m almost done reading the series now, and I was wondering if you were still on track to be releasing Duncan’s book in August 2014? If not, when should we expect the next full book in the series? Also, since you opened the door for 6 different dimensions (at least), can we expect that even once you wrap up the story arcs on second earth (many many books from now, I hope), that you will go on to write books about the third-sixth earths?? I love series that keep on going and going, and it seems like you, of all the authors I’ve read in the paranormal world, have opened the door in such a way that it would be very possible to do that with this series!! Thanks much, keep on writing them please!!=)

    • Amanda,
      You’re a woman after my own heart! Yes, I did create the Guardians of Ascension world so that it could keep going for a long time. My hope is to turn my attention back to the Warriors of the Blood and the Militia Warriors in the fall of 2014!!! Duncan’s book probably won’t be ready by August, but I am working on it! Just keep thinking good thoughts and I’ll loop back around to the series as soon as I can!

      Hugs,
      Caris

  6. I’ve been reading through your Warriors of Ascension books looking for matches to very ancient myths and tales of love, some more than seven to eight thousand years old, like Innana and Dimuzi from ancient Sumer and Isis and Osiris from ancient Egypt.

    First of all I’ve been impressed by the tremendous amount of research behind the Ascension series and how well thought out the stories were from the very beginning.

    Next I have found a match to Cupid and Psyche with Gates of Rapture, the part where Grace goes looking for help for Leto mirrors the part of the Cupid myth where Psyche is sent on errands for Cupid’s Mother. Of course Grace’s journey is much more empowering that Psyche’s! As it should be.

    I haven’t finished reading through these books so it’s possible I will find other stories that match my research. Anyway you are, at this point, part of my data base. Thanks for writing these stories.

    Doris Gomez

  7. Dear caris,
    I just wanted to thank you for the signed copy of Born in Chains! As well as the book marks ,note pads , and envelopes with note cards. You are beyond awesome!!!!!!!! I can’t wait to read it!

  8. Please Don’t forget the books of Ascension I really would like to know Luken’s, Zach’s and Santiago’s history plus I want to see them happy and paired.
    I know these books won’t be publish with the same house, but where can I look for an up date on it.

  9. Love,love the blood rose series..can’t wait for no. 7..also the blood rose tales..going to start on men in chains…oooo can’t wait to get started…I’m a vam junkie.. Thanks for such good stories..

  10. Embrace The Night by Caris Roane. 5 stars
    Don’t know when I have enjoyed a book more. This is not your typical Vampire story. We have a wedding along with the opening of a very much wanted bakery. One of the owners is a human. We do like to through curve balles into a good game. Things just keep on getting more interesting as you keep reading. You ll love this book and will be more than happy to tell others, but don’t give too much away

  11. I have been reading your Blood Rose series, and I just love them. Would love to see these made into a movie or a
    HBO series like Game of Thrones. I love the different realms, the different species, and especially the master
    Vampires. Finally, vampires that have compassion for other
    People. I have all of the rose series and I read them over
    And over.

  12. Hello Ms. Roane,
    I am a writer but when I went and got my book published it was with a self publishing company. They did not listen to what I wanted for the cover and when I went back and read it I found a lot of editing errors. I wish to get it re-published would you recommend going to Amazon for this or another? And I was wondering if you do all your own editing or do you have someone who does this after you tweak your novels to your satisfaction? Sincerely, A Fan, Shelley A..Danelek

    • Hi, Shelley,
      I hear your frustration, especially when you turn your book over to a publisher. I do all my own self-publishing at this point. I’m even doing my own covers. I’m not sure what you mean, however, by a self-publishing company. Is this an e-publisher with whom you’ve signed a contract? Or was this a company that you paid money to in order to get a formatted book with a cover? I think I’d need more details to be of help. You can contact me at carisroane@gmail.com and I’d be happy to offer what guidance I can.

      All best and big hugs,
      Caris
