In the age of modern fiction you have authors like Stephanie Meyer, JK Rowling, Stephen King and so many more all dominating the shelves thanks to their pedigrees and ability to target a certain demographic, or audience, with their works. In this crowded field of talented authors, though some would argue against Meyers inclusion, there stands one that does not belong yet puts them all to shame from a financial stand point: E. L. James. James is the author of the self published-turned global sensation, Fifty Shades of Grey. You might think you know all there is to know about the erotic novel and movie, but just wait. Listed below are ten shocking, jaw dropping facts about Fifty Shades of Grey.
Ana rehashes a phrase over 52 times in just the first book.
E.L. James was not a professional writer when she put Fifty Shades of Grey up for download on the internet, and that is something we’ll get more into later. So it shouldn’t surprise us to hear that the author had her own linguistic crutches — one of which made the main character Ana almost unreadable. During the first book Ana spoke about her ‘inner goddess’ fifty two times. If you did a set of push ups every time she spoke that phrase during the book then you would have the hot new weight loss program on hand and she would have been the reason for your loss weight.
