Special Contests

000 Caris Roane - Author Photo 2Special Contests

Hi, Everyone, and welcome to my Special Contests page. You’ve probably found your way here through my newsletter so I want to take this opportunity to thank you again for supporting my work as a writer. I love creating my paranormal worlds and I hope you enjoy living in them as much as I do.  I also made a decision at the beginning of 2016 to give more good stuff away to my fans, mostly because it’s fun!

I’m a sucker for a tender yet passionate romance in which warrior vampires and shifter wolves have their lives completely overturned by worthy women!  And of course, my stories always end with a Happily Ever After! Of course! 

My November 2017 Release!

EMERALD FLAME, A Paranormal Romance

Book #6 of The Flame Series

An alpha wolf sizzling with storm power. An invisible witch. An evil wizard who wants them both dead.

  1. Hi Caris,
    I have been an avid reader of erotic romance in any form since 13 and this July I will mark 43 years of reading & collecting my life long passion. As you can imagine, I have amassed quite a collection from various authors (including you) and I just wanted to say what a pleasure it is for me to read your stories.
    There is a select list of today’s current authors that I will purchase every release because these writers have the talent and ability to entertain, fascinate, tantalize, and draw me into the world they have created and emotionally connect with their characters. IMO Ms. Roane, you are one of those authors blessed with this rare gift!
    Thank you for the many hours you have allowed me to escape this mortal world if only for a brief moment and experience an amazing adventure!!

    Sheri Cordell
    P.S. I love looking at your jewelry pieces…maybe one day, I might win one! 🙂

    • Sheri, thank you so much for the kind, encouraging words! I LOVE telling my stories, but while writing I’m often worried I won’t rise to the task. I’m always thinking about how to do better, how to make sure I hit all the right notes, and how to leave the reader satisfied. Hearing your appreciation, means the world. Again, thanks for your encouragement!

      Hugs, Caris

    • So glad to hear you’re enjoying my stories! And yes, Arizona has a special quality. We live just outside of Phoenix, away from the lights, and it’s a small piece of heaven; quiet, beautiful, lots of stars!

      Hugs,
      Caris

  2. Really enjoying the the attraction between Fergus and Mary, the dreamscape adds a whole new dynamic to this story, I guess anything is possible in a dream. Keep up the great work Caris.

    • Hi, Renee! I think this is the reason I LOVE writing paranormal romance: the imagination is the only limit and mine is kinda out there, to say the least!!! The dreamglide has been lots of fun. I have Dead-talkers in this series as well that we’ll be meeting soon, but I haven’t yet chatted with any of them enough to know what special powers they get up to. That WILL be fun! And congrats again on winning the FB prize!

      Hugs,
      Caris

  3. Hi there, Caris,

    I have been enjoying your ‘blood rose’ series. At the moment, I am reading book 5 – Jude and Hannah – and, like the previous books, they are all steamy and full of romance and sensuality. Your writing is superb and, as always, the continuity is there. Thankyou, also, for the chance at the Valentines giveaway…….:)

    • Angela, thanks so much for the kind words! I really, really appreciate it! I write with my fans in mind; it keeps me super motivated! And your timing is excellent because I’m currently writing the last book of the series as we speak. This is book 9, entitled: EMBRACE THE POWER. It already has me weeping, which is a good sign. I get so moved by these characters. I hope you do, too! Oh, and good luck on the giveaway! It was fun to put together. I may have to do this more often, lol!

      Hugs,
      Caris

  4. This is a wonderful giveaway. So thoughtful. What’s better then a gread read and sweet goodies. 🙂 Thank you Caris.
    Carol L

    • Carol, I got carried away at my local craft store one night and thought, ‘Okay, I’ll have two giveaways!’ Yes, I can be a bit impulsive! Good luck!

      Hugs,
      Caris

    • Suann, hi back, from sunny HOT Arizona! We’ve been in the 80s all week, which is a bit warm in February even for the Sonoran Desert of the USA. But I’ll bet it’s super hot where you are! Stay cool! And I’m so glad to know that you’re enjoying my books!

      Hugs,
      Caris

  5. Congrats to lucky Karen. The domino pendant is another beauty Caris. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to win. Love your stories . Good luck everyone.
    Carol L

  6. I will say I really enjoy your books. Since there is only one winner for your jewelry is it possible to purchase any of the jewelry?

    • Anne, I keep thinking about the process of offering my book-related jewelry for sale, but it’s not something I want to do at this time. HOWEVER, I’m not hearing back from some of the winners, so I might set a deadline and then offer those pieces that go unclaimed for sale. If I do this, it will be first-come, first-serve and in such a way that I’ll plow the income back into more beads and charms. That might work. I’m still debating what to do about the winners not responding.

      Anyway, if you have some input, that would be awesome!

      Hugs,
      Caris

  7. I would love to enter the contest, but I don’t know how. I try hitting the little chopper thing, but nothing happens. Help!

  8. Thank you for this opportunity. You have awesome giveaway on I am new on here I want to say Thank you.
    Elizabeth

    • Elizabeth, thank you so much! I wanted to have some fun this year and creating the jewelry based on the Flame Series and soon the Blood Rose Series, has been very satisfying for me! I have wonderful fans and wanted to return the love!

      Hugs,
      Caris

  9. Dear Caris,
    I love your jewelry! Being hand made to coordinate with your books makes truly special. I am really excited about this current contest. Amethyst is my birthstone. I’ll be crossing my fingers for luck and I am anxious to read this next book! Thank you for these wonderful opportunities.
    Truly Sincerely,
    Jennifer Lawrence

    • Good luck, Jennifer! I’ll be making more of the purple ones for the special contests, so stay-tuned! And I just bought a bunch more charms…yes, I’m having fun!

      Big hugs,
      Caris

  10. Hello Caris,
    I like this new bracelet and it just so happens that purple is my favorite color. I loved reading Amethyst Flame and gave a review on Amazon. Please keep up the good work and your yard is coming along.

    • Thanks, Renee! Green is my favorite color but purple is a close second, that and a dusty rose! I’m glad you enjoyed AMETHYST FLAME. It was such a fun book to write!

      Hugs,
      Caris

  11. Caris, your jelery is so unique and beautiful. I also loved the newsletter pics of your growing garden and all the others. Tanks for the wonderful giveaway chances.

  12. Caris, I love the way you create these pieces and the way you utilize the colorsd. Thanks for the giveaway opportunities.
    Carol L

    • Thanks, Carol. I didn’t know how much I would enjoy the process until now. I work most of the day on my books, but in the evenings, usually with the TV running something in the background, I get to play with shapes and colors and ply my pliers. And each time, I ask: What can I do differently? It was really fun to decide to run the charms down the chain this time instead of grouping them at the top. Now I wonder how all this will evolve by the end of the year. For instance, I was scrolling through a charm site on Etsy and found all these wonderful charms relating to Christmas and the holidays. Now you can see where I’m headed, lol! Lot’s of fun! Good luck!

  13. Caris, thanks for another great giveaway. It’s wonderful hearing about your husbands diagnosis. 🙂
    Carol L
    Lucky4750 (at) aol (dot) com

    • Thanks, Carol! And his energy improves daily! It’s been a wonderful thing to watch. And you’re welcome about another giveaway! Oh, and I just finished a charm bracelet based on DARK FLAME, for next week’s contest. It’s so pretty. I used black and teal beads and just for fun a few very pale green small beads. I think it turned out great!

      Hugs,
      Caris

  14. OMG ! Scorpions, smart thinking with the plunger. Please, check your shoes before putting them on now that the scorpions have come to visit. 🙂 I love your pics of the garden. It’s coming along beautifully. Thanks for sharing. And thank you for another gorgeous giveaway piece.
    Carol L

    • Hi, Carol! Years ago, when I read Westerns, I remember our hero would always shake out his boots before he put them on in case a scorpion or two had taken shelter in them. Never thought I’d have to worry about these critters. So, yes, I check my shoes! And I might start carrying the plunger around with me, lol!

      Hugs,
      Caris

    • Thanks, so much, Sharyn! I really enjoy making them, then working to create something new for the next contest!
      Hugs,
      Caris

  15. I love the pictures every week. Your garden will reward all your hard work when all is done. You’re definitely getting a workout on your arms. That was one big rock you wiggled loose. 🙂 Love the colors.
    Carol L

  16. I love the colors on this latest piece. Very talented. But that shows in how far your garden has come. I can’t for the life of me grow anything in the best of circumstances and here you’ve created such beauty and technique in a dessert 🙂
    Carol L

  17. Your FIL is in my prayers also Caris. My Dad passed 6 years ago and making sure their wishes are met and making decisions for ones parent is such an act of love and strength. It’s one of the toughest and emotional journeys we can make. God Bless !

      Hugs,
      Caris

      Caris

  21. Caris, You should be so very proud of how creative and talented you are. Not just with your awesome books, but the garden is jusdt amazing. The colors are beutiful. Thanks for sharing your garden with us.
    Carol Luciano

  22. I have read so many of your books that I’ve lost count and I haven’t been let down by even one of them. I enjoy your writing tremendously. So thanks for what you have done and I’ll be looking for what comes in the future. I loved your comment today about the cat and you fighting for the warm keyboard! They are such freethinking critters .

  23. Hope you start feeling better Caris. I had a bad cold 2 weeks ago that just wiped me out for 10 days. The garden is gorgeous and the pictures show the love and caring attention you’ve given it.
    Carol L

  38. I enjoyed the great reads that you produce. I hope you keep them coming. I think my favorites are always about Highlanders! But I do enjoy them all,

    • whoops! I push the button to post before I was finished. The last sentence should have been I enjoy vampires just as much and I tend to alternate between the two types of heroes like those in the Flame Series.

  39. I look forward to your newsletter, Caris, and often share it with friends and family. So many interesting and pretty subjects that you include just make my day. As the lucky owner of one of your bracelets, I cannot stop admiring each new one you show us. You are so creative. I don’t know how you do it all, but I am so delighted that you do! Thank you, Caris!

  40. Thank you for the pictures of the hydrangeas….my mother loved them, she loved all flowers but some were better than others. She use to tell us bring me flowers when I’m alive and can enjoy them not after I’ve died and can’t….so we did. And since I can kill plastic flowers I leave it to my sister to keep any flowers that my mom had growing…She’s been gone since 1999 and my sister still has a couple of her plants/flowers.
    So Thanks,
    Rebecca

  41. Love the pictures of the hydrangeas. I can’t have any in my yard because I get too much direct sunlight, but I try to compensate myself loving my lantana, hardy hibiscus, and rose of sharon in pink and white!

  42. Love your photos of the hydrangeas (then again, love all your photos)! I’m jealous. 😉 Love your bracelets too – so unique.

  43. Your garden has come such a long way in a relatively short time. Thank you so much for sharing those. And so many different beautiful Hydrangeas, and the Sweet Peas. Wish we had more flowers here. Thank you again for sharing so many beautiful pics.

  44. I love your bracelets and would love to know where you purchase the charms from. I have no such luck winning contests and would love to purchase and try to make them (someday). Although, my crafting space is shrinking due to future projects! LOL!
