50 Shades of Grey Parody

Posted: September 18, 2013 in Erotica, Review, Smut

It really never occurred to me until yesterday to check the internet to see if there are other 50 Shades of Grey parodies before I wrote mine. Yes, for those few who might be wondering and weren’t able to figure it out, THAT is the story I’m spoofing in my 15 Layers Trilogy.  I know, it was so HARD to figure out.

Of course I knew about the 50 Sheds of Grey, but that isn’t the same thing as I what I did.  I wanted to make a romance with similar characters in sort of similar situations and make them incredibly stupid.  Because that is how I see the original trilogy. It’s stupid. At least in my trilogy, they’re honest about it.

Since I’m not advertising my story at all, I hope a little word of mouth helps get a bit of interest going about it.  After all, it only costs $1.98 total to read my little spoof, while there are people out there forking out $45 to read 50 Shades trilogy in hardback.  Dang, it must be nice to have so much disposable cash.  I must say I am quite proud that not a dime of my money has helped increase EL James’ coffers.  Yes, I will eventually watch the train wreck the movie will be, but I’ll rent it for a buck at Redbox, so she still won’t get a penny. At least I don’t think Redbox has to share that dollar with the author, since they will pay outright for the DVD they will eventually rent to me any other rubberneckers who choose to rent it.

Not that I have any ill will toward EL James.  Other than her being allowed to take a fanfiction, change the names and publish it, since that is supposed to be against the rules.  But oh well, more power to her.
No, the people I hold ill will toward are the stupid suckers who made EL James rich.  I tortured myself on the first installment, and I suffered through Jenny Trout’s recaps so I could be more informed for my spoof, so I know how messed up these books are.  And for all those millions out there buying and loving the 50 Shades trilogy?  You are messed up in the head. If it were just a few thousand of you, I could easily live with that, since there will always be unbalanced people, but when there are literally millions of them out there, living beside us?  THAT SCARES THE SHIT OUT ME.

Writing my parody was cathartic.  I laughed and snickered and almost felt better about all this mess while I wrote it.  It made me feel good to make fun of it.  That is the only way I can manage to get my head around its popularity.

So there you have it. That is why I wrote it.  Feel free to read it and let me know what you think.  It will be available all over the web soon, including Amazon, though they won’t offer the first installment free.  If you only shop there, let them know where it’s free elsewhere, and maybe they will price match.
