A book based on a parody of Fifty Shades of Grey – 50 Shames of Earl Grey is scheduled to come out this summer.
Ugh, this scares me a little. Andrew Shaffer from Evil Reads wrote this in 10 days. On the one hand, I appreciate the entrepreneurial spirit. On the other hand, I really don’t like negative people and negative things. Maybe I have too many negative people around me, but they drag me down.
As for parodies, when done right, they can be funny. I know Fifty Shades of Grey isn’t a literary masterpiece, I can laugh at some of the stuff too. I’m hoping Andrew can find that sweet spot where you can laugh instead of feeling lectured at for having bad taste. Otherwise his book can go the way of poorly written articles where the author doesn’t take the time to check their facts.
