Talk about going SUPER Twi-hard!!!!
Women are ranting and raving about Fifty Shades of Grey, the first book in E.L. James erotic novel trilogy. But, no one knew how the New York Times and Amazon best seller got its start.
Turns out, it was all because of Twilight!
Dear Author founder Jane Litte explains that E.L. James originally posted all three books on ff.net, a fan fiction website.
Bella as a virgin college co-ed? Edward as a sex hungry businessman? Who WOULDN'T love this?!?!
James and her popularity exploded after her books spread through the internet and word of mouth like wildfire. She attended the 2010 ComicCon and a three day conference in DC HELD BY HER FANS!
Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades of Darker are now numero uno and dos on the NYT best seller list.
Looks like no matter what kind of realm they're, ladies LUV Edward and Bella!
