LOS ANGELES—Tera Patrick is preparing to unveil her autobiography titled "Sinner Takes All: A Memoir of Love, Marriage & Porn" through Gotham/Penguin Books.
In the book, Patrick goes in depth about her experiences as a top model, feature entertainer, entrepreneur, fashion designer and sex symbol. The hardcover version is currently available for pre-orders at amazon.com, barnes&noble.com, borders.com and indiebound.com. The book will be available in retail outlets nationwide on Jan. 5, 2010.
The project came about after Patrick met entertainment journalist/author Carrie Borzillo-Vrenna who asked Tera to be part of her latest book, "Cherry Bomb: The Ultimate Guide to Becoming a Better Flirt, a Tougher Chick, and Hotter Girlfriend and to Living Like a Rock Star" (Simon Spotlight Entertainment, 2008). The two women made a great connection and Patrick asked Borzillo-Vrenna to co-author "Sinner Takes All."
"There was immediate chemistry between us," Patrick said. "When my publicist, April Storm, approached me with the idea of being in Carrie's book I was excited and found we shared a lot of things in common. As a fellow rock wife (she's married to Marilyn Manson's Chris Vrenna) and sex/relationship columnist, I found that she understood my world, my story and my need to share my journey with others."
The result is a tell-all that takes an emotional and revealing look at the struggles Patrick has gone through to find true love, happiness, success and peace in a world that almost broke her. "For the first time, Tera talks about her inner demons, her darkest days, and how she overcame those obstacles," Borzillo-Vrenna said. "I was surprised, inspired, and impressed by how open and honest she was willing to be in this book. It takes a confident and brave woman to share her most private moments."
"Sinner Takes All" also includes "hot sex stories, funny anecdotes, embarrassing moments, an inside look at her marriage to rock star/actor turned porn star Evan Seinfeld, and a deeper peek at her childhood, as well as dozens of sexy photos, diary entries, and answers to her fans' burning questions."
The book features a foreword written by comedian/actress and fellow sexually-empowered, successful Asian businesswoman, Margaret Cho, who writes, "Orgasms, like laughter, can be faked, but it’s better when they’re not. Tera doesn’t fake anything in this revealing and inspiring book."
Larry Flynt, founder of Hustler magazine, remarked, "I can think of no one more fascinating than Tera Patrick: porn star, model, and businesswoman, as readers of this book are certain to agree. It’s all here her passions, triumphs and defeats — in more detail than we have any right to expect.”
Patrick will embark on a book tour this winter with dates and locations to be announced soon.
Meanwhile, the starlet celebrated her birthday this week with a party Thursday night at Tao in Las Vegas. TMZ.com this morning posted a photo of Patrick and Seinfeld partying with actor Cuba Gooding Jr. at the posh nightclub inside the Venetian Hotel & Casino.
