The New 50 Shades of Grey Book – aka Mummy Porn

You either love or hate E.L. James trilogy 50 Shades of Grey.  I am a lover and I’m not alone, the trilogy has sold more than 125 million copies worldwide!  As a lover of the books I was very excited when I heard about a new book entitled Grey is being released on the 18th of June, the story being told from Christian’s point of view.  (Kind of made me think of the Twilight books and the fact that there was going to be a version Midnight Sun told from Edward’s point of view, sadly that hasn’t happened beyond chapter one that was released in 2006 yet but apparently it’s being worked on, or so her update from 2008 states.)  Anyway, back to Grey…

Above is a photo of the cover, it basically covers what we already know – that he meets Ana, that he is drawn to Ana, his dark side yadda yadda yadda.  We know the story, but only from Anastacia’s point of view. What was Christian thinking?  We will find out soon…  perhaps sooner than we think, as there have been news reports of the story being stolen as reported by The Independent and CNN.  There are whispers that the book hasn’t actually been stolen, but we are being led to believe it has been as part of a publicity stunt.  Well if it is the latter, it has worked because it’s all over the news and it is drumming up a truckload of hype.  Hype is what got us the new book in the first place, James has stated that she wrote the story because fans have begged her to do so and because…

“Christian is a complex character and readers have always been fascinated by his desires and motivations, and his troubled past. Also, as anyone who has ever been in a relationship knows, there are two sides to every story,” James said.

She’s obviously a smart business woman to comply, as it is going to sell like hot cakes and make her even richer than she has become.  Not bad for a person who decided to post some Twilight Fan Fiction on a blog because she’d always been interested in writing.
