Fresh off the release of Dirty Rowdy Thing (Book Two in the Wild Seasons series) Christina Lauren made an exciting announcement about the next book in the Beautiful Bastard Series – We have a cover and a release date for Beautiful Secret (featured below) and we couldn’t be happier! We absolutely ADORE the Beautiful Bastard Series – Max Stella is our #1 Book Boyfriend, after all! We’re also excited to inform you that the author duo is still in talks to turn Beautiful Bastard into feature film, so get ready to tell everyone how much you loved the book before it was a movie!
Speaking of books at the movies – If you’ve already signed up for Alessandra Torre‘s newsletter, you know that she’s in talks to turn The Girl in 6E into a film *squee* plus she announced that the sequel to that book – Do Not Disturb – is expect in April of 2015!
In even more news from the Goddess of Erotic Romance known as Alessandra Torre, she’s living up to her promise from the BEND Anthology – At the end of her short story, Still, she indicated that she would turn Riley and Brett’s story into a full length novel. That time has come – TIGHT is expected January 2nd, 2015 & if you weren’t able to grab a copy of BEND before it became a banned book, don’t worry. Tight is going to stand alone…
Aaaaaand while we’re talking about books being made into movies, I suppose I should mention that the full trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey premiered this week:
So here’s the deal… I did not hate or love the FSoG franchise, but I respect the fuck out of it for introducing people to the Erotic Romance Genre… If it hadn’t been for the E.L. James phenomenon, I probably wouldn’t be doing what I do here at The Smutsonian. I probably wouldn’t have thousands of followers interested in learning about new and exciting books…
You’ve probably noticed that you can’t find reviews of any of the three Fifty Shades books here at The Smutsonian. That decision was deliberate, and I’ll probably never post any. People unfamiliar with the breadth of Erotica available tend to hold FSoG as some sort of touchstone formula for the genre and I won’t perpetuate the opinion that E.L. James represents the definition of the Genre.
That being said, I will absolutely pay money to see the Fifty Shades of Grey movie when it comes out next year. For one very specific reason. If this movie is a box office hit, it’s going to open the floodgates for film deals presented to all authors.
Truthfully, I loathe movies based on books. I have a tendency to yell “Read the Fucking Book!” at the television when trailers come on the screen… But I digress…
A successful FSoG movie will promote the whole Genre to an enormous audience. You don’t have to like it. It’s a fact. Studios will pay more attention to authors – especially Indie Authors – when choosing their next project. Most importantly, it will inspire people to READ more books, which is the whole reason I’m here.
Whatever you read, read it proudly. Don’t apologize. I’m here to take the ‘guilty’ out of ‘guilty pleasure’.
Until next week!
