We knew Fifty Shades Of Grey author E.L. James was rolling in sexy $$$, but who would EVER fathom the fantastical sexual appetites of the average woman is worth 50 million
smacked asses smackeroos??!!
So here is the business breakdown of the Twilight inspired erotica fan-fiction BEAST that is the Fifty Shades trilogy:
On July 2, the combined US sales of Fifty Shades paperbacks and ebooks hit around 19 million units. Tack on another 12 million sold internationally, and you have yourselves 31 million ladies uniting in self-pleasure all across the globe!
Let’s say E.L. James is getting the standard paperback royalty rate at 7%, with ebooks at 25% - that’s AT LEAST $35 million, plus $5 million for movie rights, PLUS international royalties…
Well… a conservative estimate would place Ms. James in the $50 Million club EASILY.
And all the above in 6 months? Snowqueens Icedragon is set for life!!
