I just posted this idea on E.L. James page and the "official" 50 Shades of Grey page as well ... but I want credit when it happens.  ;-)

With all of the talk about 50 Shades of Grey and the movie version - the internet is awash with discussion of who should star as Christian and Ana.

"Later's Baby: Casting 50 Shades of Grey" ... a new reality show for fall sweeps!

Let known stars AND unknowns "compete" for the right to be cast as Christian and Ana!!

Think of the ratings!! 

This would blow "The Bachelor" right out of the water!!

How do I copyright an idea? Hmm ... ;-)

In fact - as much as ABC likes to "cross-promote" with The Bachelor and Dancing With The Stars ... etc. ... this is a NATURAL FIT for them. "You might not have been cast as Christian Grey - but we'd like for you to be the next Bachelor." Or the "couple" that had the most chemistry while auditioning for the roles could be selected for Dancing With The Stars!!

Anyway - I have also put together a Facebook page to help "expose" erotica to a wider audience.  Please come check it out.

Readers - come find books recommended by your fellow readers.

Authors - come feel free to post and exposure yourself (pun intended) to a wider audience.

Defending The Sinking Ship?

Ugh. I used to like Jodi Picoult. I just lost a ton of respect for her. 

From her interview:

What advice would you give to an aspiring author?

Take a workshop course. You need to learn to give and get criticism and to write on demand. And DO NOT SELF PUBLISH.

/Rant on:

Yet another traditionally published author who has drunk the koolaid of the publishing industry and their need to hold onto the crumbling paradigms that used to work for them.

Self-publishing was the best decision I have ever made. It has allowed me to reach readers, gain feedback, and do what I love on my schedule. Instead of waiting for some drone in a over worked publishing house to "bless" my book or not - I am already published and gaining critical experience.

100 Amazon reviews with a 4.7 out of 5 Star average for my True Romance / Erotica series. Why exactly should I have not self-published again?

/Rant off

Number FIVE!!

Moving on up!!  Volume one is now NUMBER FIVE in the Amazon store - for highest rated (by average customer review) erotica books!!
