This is a project I’m very excited to be a part of. It’s my first published non fiction work, and it’s about possibly the most popular work of fiction in 2012. Lori Perkins has put together a fab book of essays on Fifty Shades of Grey, from writers, BDSM experts, agents and many others. My essay is written from the UK perspective, i.e. how the book has affected the erotica and erotic romance industry over here.
Here’s the official blurb and list of contributors. As you can see, I’m in very good company!
Can’t get enough of Fifty Shades of Grey?
Fifty Shades of Grey has gone from underground e-book sensation to runaway mainstream bestseller—it’s the book everyone is talking about.
Now, Fifty Writers on Fifty Shades of Grey extends the conversation women (and men!) are having across the country. The perfect panel of insiders—from the editor who first “discovered” Fifty Shades of Grey, to BDSM experts, to erotic fiction authors, romance authors, and a whole lot more—takes you deeper into the trilogy that has captured the imaginations of so many.
From the books’ sexual politics and its fanfiction origins to what sets it apart from other erotic fiction and romance (and what doesn’t), everything you ever wanted to know about Fifty Shades of Grey is right here.
Whether you loved Fifty Shades of Grey, or just want to know why everyone else does, Fifty Writers on Fifty Shades of Grey is the book for you!
