The unimaginable has happened.
Close on the heels of finding out that E.L. James, author of Fifty Shades of Grey, has begun writing a “How To” book on writing (which makes me throw up in my mouth a little every time I think of it) came the suggestion from Kobo that I pre-order her next novel. It may or may not be entitled Grey – it was hard to tell through the blur of tears as I read the
devastating news email. What I did get was that the book is, get this, Fifty Shades of Grey AGAIN but through the eyes of Christian Grey instead of Anastasia (aka Mrs.) Grey.
I’ve mourned the loss of the money I
threw away spent when I bought the trilogy enough, I think, to know better than to buy the same thing AGAIN. But fans of the first three books surely will.
Will millions of readers die of boredom? Or worse, will they live to take advice from Ms. James on how to write a novel?
Stay tuned. And don’t worry, I’ll be there to hold your hand when the literary world gets whipped right out of existence.
