"50 Shades of Louisa May"
This is truly too entertaining not to share:
As listed in Publisher's Marketplace:
Louisa May Anonymous's 50 SHADES OF LOUISA MAY, imagining the secret sex life of an iconic 19th-century American novelist and the Transcendentalists (Thoreau, Hawthorne, Melville) after whom she lusted, to John Oakes at OR Books, by Dan Conaway at Writers House (NA).
Information shared from this wonderful blog, "It's All in the Details."
What on earth did E.L.James do to publishing? It's like everyone has gone BERserk and lost his/her mind.
Unfortunately, the book might sell many copies. But then again it also might just be a desperate attempt to copy something that worked well without considering the fact that lightening rarely strikes twice...pardon the bad cliche. When you really think about it, it's kind of hard to imagine the women who are reading FSoG right now talking about Louisa May's sex life. I'm not sure I see that happening.
