Welcome to the seventh 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.
And to celebrate the release of “The King: The Original Sinners Book 6” we have THE TIFFANY REISZ sharing with us today!!! *squeeeeee!!* I know SO many in our crew LOVE LOVE LOVE her Original Sinners series and you’re going to love her inside scoop! It made me *snort*!!! 😛
The Corrections By Tiffany Reisz
You’ll never believe the weird rumors that get started when you write Catholic erotica. Okay, so Catholic erotica isn’t a thing, but I’m trying to make it a thing. My Original Sinners series combines sex, kink, true love, sadism, humor, and Catholic theology. I’m Catholic. Trust me, it all fits. Anyway, not only am I Catholic and an erotica writer, but I attended seminary for a couple years. Now the seminary I attended was a conservative Methodist seminary in the south where I was getting a dual-Master’s degree in theology and biblical studies. When my writing started to go somewhere I dropped out of school, got a job, and focused on my novels. When my first book, THE SIREN, was coming out, my publisher hired a very nice publicist to help with the book launch. This publicist, not being Catholic, got “seminary” confused with “religious order” and sent out a press release that THE SIREN was authored by a former nun.
I am not a former nun. Or a current nun. A correction was quickly sent out.
A few weeks later an interview I did for Cosmopolitan UK started making the rounds online. A tweet broadcasting the article declared that the author, Tiffany Reisz, was a professional dominatrix. While I have paid good money to Dominatrixes in the pursuit of verisimilitude in my books, I am not a professional dominatrix. I’m just friends with a bunch of them. A correction was quickly issued.
So now I can say I am the only author on earth whose publicist had to send out the following correction:
Tiffany Reisz is neither a former nun nor a professional dominatrix. Please update your records.
