248: Embracing the Delete Key to Unlock Your Story – Interview with Tiffany Reisz

Hey there word nerds!

Today I am delighted to have Tiffany Reisz on the show!

Tiffany is the USA Today bestselling author of the Romance Writers of America’s RITA®-winning Original Sinners series from Harlequin’s Mira Books. She has also received a Lambda Award in Gay Fiction for her novel The King and two Romantic Times Editor’s Choice Awards for Best Erotic Romance and Best Series Romance.

Her erotic fantasy The Red—self-published under the banner 8th Circle Press—was named an NPR Best Book of the Year, a Goodreads Best Romance of the Month, and received a coveted starred review from Library Journal. Her latest book, which is set in the world of The Red, is the erotic fantasy The Rose.

Tiffany lives in Lexington, Kentucky with her husband, Andrew Shaffer (who I’ve had the pleasure of chatting with previously on the show), the New York Times Bestselling author of Hope Never Dies. She has two cats. The cats are not writers.

So listen in as Tiffany and I chat about her amazing new novel, The Rose, and why embracing the delete key, no matter how many words you must trash, can be the thing that takes your book from good to great.

In this episode Tiffany and I discuss:

  • Using a framing device to craft an erotic romance.
  • Elements to consider when writing a sex scene.
  • How to discover your own erotic vocabulary.
  • Finding the key that opens up your story and lets the words flow.
  • How to know when you need to trash your existing draft and start over.

Plus, Tiffany’s #1 tip for writers.
