E.L. James gets p0wned

Some bright young marketer apparently thought it would be a good idea to have E. L. James, author of the (in)famous Fifty Shades of Grey, do a live Twitter Q&A.

It did not go well.

Here are my favorites:

How does it feel to have actually written a worse love story than Twilight? That is real skill.

If E.L.James asks for these tweets to stop, does that mean she really wants them to continue?

Sweet mecy, there's so much I want to #AskELJames Most start with "why" and end with the implacable howling of the damned.

See 'em all ===>

Just to be clear, I have no quarrel with her writing BDSM romances. I do however take issue with the fact that her books contain sentences like, "His eyebrows widened in surprise." Srsly? Strunk & White need a safe word with this woman.

That whole thing is sooo funny and it actually makes me feel kind of bad for her LOL. But she should be able to handle it. Her publishers should feel ashamed.

I almost feel sorry for her, but since she's obviously a fan of abuse, maybe she got off on it.

My quarrel is with her total lack of research on BDSM and her hideous writing coupled with this series' incomprehensible popularity. I may have taken more pleasure in this than is strictly appropropriate.

I have a big quarrel with her attempting to write BDSM and failing miserably, falling into writing an abusive relationship and not getting anything right where BDSM is concerned. Safe, sane and consensual is nowhere in her book!

Why do these people make oodles of money for writing crap??? *sigh*

I have a problem with her perpetuating every negative fanfic writer stereotype in such a public fashion
And for crimes against the English language!!!!

Something of interest that I came across last night (pertaining to Fifty Shades of Fail)

Yes, the critic blatantly said Grey was equal to a cult founder/leader since he uses the same techniques on Anastasia.

I apologize for bringing this up.
