in Fun Author Tidbits

Welcome to the eighth installment of “You’ll Never Believe…”

For those that don’t know what these new featurettes will be about, here is the scoop! “You’ll Never Believe…” will feature the weirdest questions or encounters that authors have been asked/had. Might be about their books or random things, like meetings in a bathroom where someone asked what brand of toilet paper they normally use. Fun stuff and inside scoops that an author would not normally share.

This one made me *snort*!!! Piercing or no piercing? ;)

You’ll Never Believe…with Randi Cooley Wilson

I actually love this story and hope my husband, and his friend, don’t mind me sharing this. Truthfully, as a debut author, I’m still wrapping my head around the fact that I’ve released three books within The Revelation Series this past year.

One thing I had never expected was the strange looks and responses that people I actually know would have about the story. Let’s face it we’re all guilty of fangirling over our favorite authors and books. I’m looking at you Kylie Scott and the Stage Dive Series. I never in a million years though, expected this kind of incredible response to my characters or stories.

That’s why it always makes me giggle when close family members, who know me well, will ask if the characters are based off people I know, or if the events in RevelationRestraint or Redemption are written from actually events. I think, girlie, you’ve known me all my life, have I once mentioned hanging out in London, with a sexy clan of tattooed and pierced gargoyles? Nope.

Recently, the hubby and I attended our standing, monthly dinner with dear friends. At the table, my girlfriend, who is married to a longtime friend of my husband’s, told me how much she loved the books. I was so excited, and secretly relieved, because if she didn’t that would make our dinner party very awkward.

Anyway, she then went on to tell me that my husband’s friend started to read them as well. He was standing across from my guy at the time, and proceeded to turn beat red. My hubby being the amazing man he is said, “That’s cool, I’ve read them too”. His friend suddenly got quiet and I didn’t miss the quick drop of his eyes to my husband’s crotch area and then back up to his eyes. I thought, wow, that’s strange. Only to have my girlfriend lean in and say, he’s been asking me all week if I think your husband is pierced like Asher St. Michael (Insert face palm here). Needless to say we all had a good laugh about it, and no, I will not be telling you one way or the other. If you meet my hubby, you’ll just have to simply stare at his crotch and wonder. He loves it!
