Lovely Bits and Pieces

Photo of Caris Roane Paranormal Romance AuthorHi, Everyone! Hope you’re having a wonderful day. I’ve called my blog, Lovely Bits and Pieces, because it aptly describes the tail end of my editing experience with every book.

As many of you know, I’m deep into the editing part of the novel-creating process for REVEALED, the third book of the Rapture’s Edge Series (part of my Guardians of Ascension series.) This book will bring Warrior Duncan and his gifted woman, Rachel, to a long-awaited and hard-won Happily Ever After.

Cover for REVEALEDThough editing is a rigorous process, it’s also where some of the magic happens. In choosing the right words, and reordering sentences and sometimes paragraphs, in deleting entire scenes meant only for me as the author, in embellishing a flat description, the images and therefore the scenes begin to come alive. These are lovely bits and pieces of the process and in many ways can make or break a book.

Without this careful combing through of every sentence, the reading of a book becomes jarring in ways hard for the reader to tolerate. Frustration mounts. The book is cast aside.

Writing takes years of practice and learning never ends. Bringing something new into the world is never a simple or easy process. But it is always magical.

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

  1. I already subscribe to your letter and wa3s just wondering if I needed to do anything so that I stay with you. I enjoy so much looking at all the pictures of your garden and what other viewers send in. Plus, I enter every contest in hopes of winning a piece of your beautiful jewelry. I am just beginning to learn to make jewelry and I’m a long way from the beauty of yours, mine sometimes look like my 2 1/2 yr old grandson made them. lol. Anyway, is the blog separate and something that needs to be signed up for one it’s own or is it part of the newsletter? I’d like to be connected to both. I rarely get out because I care for my husband who turned 86 yesterday and isn’t in the best of health. There is 22 years in our age but we have been happily married for 34 years this Dec 13 and I selfishly would like 34 more. Who knows, stranger things happen. Please let me know if I need to sign up separately. Thanks for reading.

  2. Thank you for the free book on your blog and I cannot wait to read your books! There are several on there I want..mostly all of them lol
