Deadly Ever After

An Evening With Tiffany Reisz

Today’s Brew:  Marylou’s Creamy Chocolate Coconut.

Before you get too excited– no, we were not at the 8th Circle (although this would be a much more interesting blog post if we were).  Tiffany came to area for the New England Chapter Romance Writers of America conference.  The night before the conference started, she did a book signing and reading at River Run Bookstore in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.  A chance to hear about my favorite new series from the person who wrote it and check out and support an independent bookstore?  Sold. Julie and hit the road.

I first discovered Tiffany’s books through my agent.  Of course she has fabulous taste in books!  If you’re a fan of erotica, check The Original Sinners series. If you’re a writer and you haven’t discovered these yet, read them.  Tiffany’s created a complete world with characters so believable, you forget you aren’t reading about real people.  Tiffany does all of her own research, and she’s not afraid to show the good, the bad, and the ugly in BDSM.  Because she’s very open about what she writes and the authenticity of her subject matter, she feels that it would be dishonest to write under a pen name.  You can ask Tiffany anything.  In fact, she encourages it.

Kristen and Tiffany

The first Sinner Tiffany created was Zach.  This shocked me.  I would have bet money that Nora was the character who inspired this series. Tiffany is proud that even though Nora is a proud connoisseur of men, women, and any sort of sex you can come up with, no one thinks of her as a slut.  I think that is a testament to the strength of Nora’s character.  Her sexuality is so much a part of who she is, you don’t question it.  Many of her characters are based on people that’s she’s met in her life.  Wesley is real.  Michael is real.  Even Soren is inspired by people in her past.  (Julie thinks Tiffany’s next project after The Sinners is complete should be an autobiography).  It should probably come as no surprise to readers of the series that Tiffany’s favorite Sinner besides Nora is Soren.

Julie, Tiffany, and Kristen….the smut queen in an undead duo sandwich.

As this was a reader event, (we even got a sneak peak reading from The Mistress), Tiffany didn’t share any writing advice.  You’ll have to stay tuned for my post about the NECRWA conference for that.

  1. It was so great to meet you! Thank you for coming to the signing. You all at that signing are the only people other than beta readers to have read any of that special scene with Grace and Søren.

  2. A great blog and a fantastic group shot of the three of you girls!
    How great it must be to have wonderful authors come to your local independent book store for a guest book-reading and signing session.
    Where i live, we don’t even have the luxury of an independent book store. We only have the usual “famous name” chain book store.

  3. Thank you! We don’t have any of the famous name book stores closer than a 45 minute drive, and this one was actually over 2 hours away. But we do what we must to hang with the greats.
