Hey, WONDERFUL Fans! It’s All DARK FLAME’s Fault!!!

000 Caris Roane - Author Photo 2Hi, Everyone! I’ve gotten several emails about when both AMBER FLAME and EMBRACE THE POWER will be ready, so I knew I had to write this post to let you guys know.

Here’s the deal: IT’S ALL DARK FLAME’S FAULT!!! Here’s what happened!

Bella Media ManagementOctober saw the last of my contract and for the first time in three years, I’m legally allowed to write longer books on my own. So, DARK FLAME was the first one that was significantly longer than anything I’d written as a self-published author. But it took a full 7 weeks to accomplish, which put me behind my hoped-for schedule. I started writing AMBER FLAME, thinking I would have to make it short to keep my timing tight, BUT THEN, YOU GUYS voted with your reviews and “longer” won the day. DARK FLAME has the best overall reviews I’ve received yet. I took it as strong indicator that when you, as the reader, sink into a story, you like to stay there.

Here’s the cost: LONGER BOOKS TAKE LONGER TO WRITE AND WAY LONGER TO EDIT. MUCH LONGER!!!! (Did I mention, longer!!!)

Bella Media ManagementPlease know, that I think of you often, I think of you while I’m writing, and I don’t want to let anyone down. But I also know because I’ve set release dates that I’m frustrating the hell out of some of you! For that, I humbly apologize. But also know that I’m working HARD to make these two books the best they can possibly be. I want you to love Fergus in AMBER FLAME and to fall in love with Stone even more, once EMBRACE THE POWER is done.

So be patient, my beautiful ones. I’m writing everyday for you.  Writing is like air for me and I love it. It’s something I MUST DO. And dammit, if I could churn these out faster, believe me, I would! I don’t think a day goes by that I don’t think: how can I do this faster!

I’ve written 83 books to-date.  Maybe when I reach 100, something will magically coalesce in my psyche that will allow me to visualize a story, start writing and, voila, a week later 100,000 perfect words. There’s my Christmas wish!

Love to you all!

Caris

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

  1. I know that it may be strange, but I am a 61 year old man who loves your books. The only thing that I am not happy about is that once I start reading one I can’t stop until I’m done. So a book only lasts less than a day. So please don’t writing. ..

  2. Dear Ms. Roane,

    huge fan and love your books! they’re incredibly addicting and possess an incredible imagination that is beyond compare! I’m, as well as your other readers are I’m sure, spectacularly happy to know the books you are writing are longer!! I know I am definitely b/c like Charles stated, once I pick one up I can’t put it down!! The only thing I’m longing for is Madame End’s story and sincerely hoping you haven’t moved on from the ascension series completely; the last book sort of left me hanging out there wondering and hoping for another! ; ) of course your other tales, esp. blood rose, is incredible, but my heart is with those delicious angels and the ascenders’ passion; passion in books is rare and finding a fascinating plot in addition to passionate romance is hard to find! I either find one or the other. The only other author I’ve found that also includes romance, sensuality, incredible plots, and addictive books is Donna Grant… unfortunately it takes so long for her books to be released that I’ve had to move on–lucky enough I found your books 🙂 you possess an incredible imagination and as an admirer and fan of your work I am so happy to hear you are no longer tethered to contract deadlines! I’d rather have an intricate and engrossing book to read and lose myself in than other books in which the authors are so forced to push out their books that they don’t have the opportunity to delve into what we readers know what is meant to be there but is cut short bc of deadlines! screw the deadlines and give us your all! we love it! good fortune to you on your endeavors and I hope you will not give up on the ascension series especially bc of the couples’ children and of course madame end!! hint hint! <3

    • Heather, thanks so much for the encouragement. I have NOT forgotten Endelle; she lives in my heart. I’ll be finishing up AMBER FLAME, writing the last book of the blood rose series, EMBRACE THE POWER, then finishing up Rachel and Duncan’s story, which will feature Endelle. I am slowly working my way back to Luken and Endelle and now that I can write longer books, I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to really picking up the series and, as you said, ‘giving my all’. Hugs, Caris
