I’ve been following Violet since early on in my Twitter days, I’m surprised it’s taken me so long to interview her.
What is your name? Violet
Where are you from? Originally? Well I am from California but now live in Texas by way of GA and FL. Moved half way across the US to FL to move half way back to Texas so says my mom. 🙂
How did you come to read Fifty Shades of Grey?
A friend of mine, Rose Arcadia told me about this book that use to be a fanfic. She said that I should check out. So I said okay. At the time I was a starving student so I asked her for the fanfic copy to read before putting out money on a print copy.
Did you read an actual book or an ebook?
I have all three books in old school print. I am also lucky my copy is personally signed by Mrs. James. SO lucky thanks to my friend.
Which is your favorite book in the series?
My favorite book in the series would have to be Fifty Shades Darker. I love the angst and then the reuniting of CG and Anna. My life in some form was the same way, no my now hubby wasn’t a dom yet I know what it feels like to be separated when you are dating due to things out of your control. I also know the feeling of reuniting as well.
What is your favorite scene in the series?
Okay yes I love the elevator scene, “Fuck the paperwork.” The moment that all his raw feelings for her take over and Christian for goes all control and kisses her in such a passionate way… Wow, I do not know any women or man who wouldn’t want to be desired and wanted in that way so much.
How many times have you read the series?
I have read the series twice. I am the type of person who can memorize what she reads and then visualize the scene when it is talked about. Have been tempted to read again since all the madness began yet decided not to for I already love the image I have in my mind and cannot wait to see the film’s images.
Outside of Fifty Shades of Grey, what is your favorite book, series or author?
I do like the Twilight series. I also have had the privilege to read a lot of amazing fanfic stories by Livie liv, Liv Morris, SL Scott and many others.
If you were to meet E L James today, what 2 questions would you ask her?
How have you and your family held up against the strain of Fame??
This is not a question instead I would like to thank her for opening the door for conversation about something that remains taboo yet has been seen as not just a topic of sex however as a conversation of how women have the right to feel sexy and even sensual without feeling ashamed for it.
Have you had any unique experiences because of your love of Fifty Shades of Grey?
I am not sure if this is considered unique however I have been blessed by all the people I have met on Twitter who share in the same interest I have about the Fifty Shades movie. The conversations that have been spoken due to the “controversial content” of the 3 books has been educational as well as eye opening. It is nice to be apart of such a liberating movement where it is okay for women to feel something other than shame or prudeness (not sure if it is a word) as the norm when it comes to what they feel about sex and their own sexuality.
What scene are you most looking forward to in Fifty Shades of Grey The Movie?
The elevator scene yet I think I am most looking forward to when Christian realizes how much he needs Anna so he flies to GA to see her.
