FIFTY SHADES OF GREY: An Awkward Exchange

Earlier this month, one of my (Liz's) publishers published a book that had already become an internet and self-publishing sensation, the first part in an erotic trilogy called Fifty Shades of Grey.  You may have seen the book on the cover of Entertainment Weekly.  It's also perched at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list.  Oh yeah, and it was conceived as erotic Twilight fan fiction.  I'm sure if you read this blog semi-regularly, you can guess how we feel about Twilight.  If you're doing a keyword search, you might have better luck using "fucking Twilight."  Now, it turns out, irony smacked me upside the head, as all I've done for the last few weeks is sell the porny version of Twilight.  Never one to miss an opportunity, though, I sent a copy of Fifty Shades of Grey to Gianna.  What follows is the actual text conversation we had regarding this book. (Gianna's in gray, I'm in blue.)

Now that's a burrito.


  1. Your text conversations are more interesting than the book. I only made it through the first book in the series- Anastasia talks too much.

  2. I just laughed so much I cried. At work. Behind the counter.

  3. You are so funny! Girl, there is no shame in wrapping your mouth around a large burrito while reading Fifty Shades of Grey.
    ha ha!
