Pornographic Twilight Fan Fiction is Now a Bestseller

I'll just assume the author is film and former porn star Sasha Grey.

I’ve been trying to ignore this story for days, but it just won’t go away. E.L. James, a West London TV executive and mother of two, wrote Fifty Shades of Grey as Twilight Fan Fiction on the site The book “reimagined the Bella and Edward love affair set in contemporary Seattle, Washington with Bella as the young college graduate virgin and Edward as the masterful billionaire with secret sexual predilections.”

Fifty Shades of Grey is currently #1 on the New York Times e-book fiction bestseller list, and #2 on Amazon’s Kindle Store. The New York Times has also dubbed the book “mommy porn”. So we’ll look forward to hearing that in the future. Entertainment Weekly gave the book a B+. However, it’s most likely poorly written. As evidenced in this excerpt from Jezebel:

“Argh!” I cry as I feel a weird pinching sensation deep inside me as he rips through my virginity.

Who knew taking a pirate’s virginity could be so painful?

I’m sure we’ll see more racy fare rise up the charts as e-book reading lets you read BDSM Twilight porn on the bus without all the stares I usually get.

p.s. The reviews on Amazon are priceless. “…my arthritis flared up just reading about Ana’s sexual gymnastics”.

Power to the people, I guess. Here’s the question: If Stephen King [or other popular author] hadn’t received countless rejection letters from publishers, and had instead been able to publish his work online immediately, would he have improved to be the writer he is today? Who knows what kind of crap he writing to begin with. It’s a double edged sword, I tell ya…
