I would like to write a how-to guide for fanfic writers trying to publish the next Fifty Shades of Grey
And by “next Fifty Shades of Grey” I mean “acutally good story by a fanfiction writer”. Because good fanfiction writers writing excellent erotica are out there, and at least some of them sound like they’re going to try getting published after realizing what sort of non-quality work is out there.
Except: I’ll be talking about my own experiences getting a publisher, not self-publishing. So far as I can tell, the success ofFifty Shades of Greyis one of the vagaries of word-of-mouth marketing, and if I knew the secret to harnessing that power, I would be laughing down at all of you from atop my throne of cash.
I do not have a throne of cash, and I am not laughing down at you from atop it.
However, I would love to help more quality fanfic writers get their (non-copyright infringing, of course) work published, if they want to. Because there’s no wayFifty Shadesdeserves the success it’s getting and you all don’t.
Does this sound like something anyone would be interested in? Any suggestions, comments, topics I should be sure to cover?
How about finding an agent & writing a good pitch letter?
Martha just happens to be the least favorite Doc Who companion?
Cassie just happens to be the least popular Dean Winchester girlfriend?
And it has nothing to do with racism?
Lets not forget that people CHEERED when Tara died in True Blood, as well as folks calling Alisha a bitch on Misfits, Mercedes being lazy (and apparently, fat black women can never get a white man) on Glee and Uhura being ragged on for kissing Spock in Star Trek.
But it ain’t about racism tho. Despite black women in fandoms getting shit on the most, it ain’t about racism. Nope. It just ALWAYS happens to be the black woman…
“And she shall come, bearing false prophecy.” This creature has the power to take a human’s form, read minds.”
Really? This is so fucking rude I have no words. WILL YOU PEOPLE EVER STOP BLAMING SERA FOR EVERYTHING? SHUT THE FUCK UP ALREADY. WE GET IT.
Y’all should be fucking ashamed. This is not okay, or funny. Just like joking about drugging her drink at Comic Con wasn’t okay or funny. And if you hate the direction she’s taken the show in so damn much, stop watching.
SMH.. yall… Do I have to rep hard for Sera now? Geesh, learn how to turn off the tv instead of showing just how rude & crazy yall are. Just stop watching!
