3/28 “Veiled” Is Here!!!

000 Caris Roane - Author Photo 2Hi, Everyone! VEILED is finally here, the sequel to AWAKENING and here are the details!

Veiled is part of my Guardians of Ascension series and continues the journey of Rachel and Duncan and the black ops team of Second Earth. In many ways, each episode is a standalone story, but reading the series in order is highly recommended.

2/4 Writing Rocks!!!

000 Caris Roane - Author Photo 2Hi, Everyone! Writing for me is a totally magical process.  I’ve been working on VEILED today and at the same time wrestling with the muse over the main goal of the story. I went left, then right, and finally figured out exactly what I wanted to do.  Oddly, I’d been saving ‘that bit’ for the next story, but nope, it belonged in this one! Bottom line, I really needed to strengthen the central story drive and finally hit on it today. Before that, I think the overall structure was a bit too character driven. When I did land on the right BIG SCENE, I had that lovely rush of adrenaline that often accompanies the writing process.  Very moving! Writing ROCKS!!!

00000 CR 8-17 Veiled_mediumVEILED is the second episode of the RAPTURE’S EDGE saga and I hope to release it by mid-February. This story will continue Rachel and Duncan’s journey as they continue to build the black ops team and work through their troubled relationship.  Lots of surprises coming up in VEILED. 

1/1 Happy 2015!!!

000 Caris Roane - Author Photo 2Hi, Everyone! Over the last several days, I’ve posted my New Year’s pics on Facebook, TSU, Google-Plus, Twitter and Pinterest!  I decided it would be awesome to have them all in one place to ring in the New Year!  Yay, 2015 is here!!!

And in case you’re wondering, here are my resolutions: to keep loving my writing process, to exercise more consistently, to hunt for healthy low-carb recipes, and to gradually work at least one hobby back into my life.  I still haven’t decided between gardening and homemaking, two of my favorite things!

12/31 Bye, Bye, 2014

000 Caris Roane - Author Photo 2Hi, Everyone! Can you believe this is the last day of 2014!  This year was a real up-and-down journey for me! Wow!  I released a total of TEN Books and participated in two box sets.  Here is each by name:

2014 individual releases:  TRAPPED, HUNGER, SEDUCED, EMBRACE THE PASSION, EMBRACE THE NIGHT, EMBRACE THE WILD, SAVAGE CHAINS, CHAINS OF DARKNESS, UNCHAINED, and RAPTURE’S EDGE 1 AWAKENING!  Whew!!!

12/30 To Resolve or Not to Resolve!

000 Caris Roane - Author Photo 2Hi, Everyone! We’re counting down to the New Year and I’ve been pondering whether or not to embrace the concept of ‘Resolutions’.  Normally, I shun them unless they go something like: I vow to eat more chocolate or to create a new martini this year named after me, lol!

2-1 shutterstock_103672223Joking aside, there are things I’d like to change. I would like to be more consistent with my exercising and do better with my low-carb meals, making them healthier.  So, maybe I’ll head that direction.  I’ll let you know!

12/16 New Release – RAPTURE’S EDGE 1 AWAKENING

000 Caris Roane - Author Photo 2Hi, Everyone! The next installment of the Guardians of Ascension saga is finally here:  RAPTURE’S EDGE 1 AWAKENING!  Can you believe it? I’ve carried this part of the ASCENSION story in my heart for a long time now. But I’ve been waiting for the right moment to launch the next stage of the journey for my beloved Warriors of the Blood and the Thunder God Warriors.

AWAKENING brings Duncan and Rachel back onto the stage. You have met them in BRINK OF ETERNITY and Duncan in THE DARKENING. At the opening, he’s caught in a trance because we have a new villainess, Yolanthe of Third Earth!  Yes, you heard it right – THIRD EARTH!
