Current Reading Mood: Urban Fantasy
Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Tour: BRINK OF ETERNITY Tour: Guest Post

Guest Post:

I want to thank A GREAT BOOK IS THE CHEAPEST VACATION for having me today.  I thought I’d do something a little different so I created “Ten Things Readers May Not Know About Me”.

But first, I thought I’d tell you a little bit about my paranormal romance work.  I have six books published with St. Martin’s Press for my Guardians of Ascension series as well as one novella, BRINK OF ETERNITY, published in July of 2011.  For my Blood Rose series, which also features vampires in the lead roles, I self-published EMBRACE THE DARK last May.  Both of these novellas are bundled in the release I’ve called:  VAMPIRE COLLECTION.  In entirely different ways, BRINK OF ETERNITY and EMBRACE THE DARK, explore the sexy mystique of the warrior vampire, each over-burdened by the responsibilities of his job and in need of the love of a good woman.

Ten Things Readers May Not Know About Me
by Caris Roane

1.  I spent my childhood in a small community in northern California, surrounded by beautiful redwoods, streams and rivers, and the ocean just a few miles away.

2.  I didn’t aspire to writing until I was well into my twenties.

3.  I compare my writing process to holding a tornado in my arms.

4.  My Guardians of Ascension series, featuring winged vampire warriors, came to life because of my love of science fiction.

5.  I don’t drink, but wish I could. I’m just too useless the next day and can barely drag myself to my computer.

6.  My reading preferences range all over the map.  My latest read was a Stephen King novel.

7.  I would mainline chocolate if I could.

8.  I have two cats who I adore; Gizzy and Sebastien.

9.  I was a tour guide at Disneyland in Anaheim, California many moons ago.

10.  I love writing as a profession and if I had to do it all over again, I would choose writing.

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.

Currently, Caris is working on a new vampire series set to launch in the Fall of 2013:   WARRIORS IN CHAINS with the first novel, BORN IN CHAINS.
