Fan fiction has been in my vocabulary for all of two days. Basically fan fiction is where a die-hard fan takes a literary work from their favorite author, remix it and market it as if it’s their own. They have created websites and blogs for this! One fan fiction in particular has caught everyone’s attention this week. 50 Shades of Grey is in high demand to the point that no one can find it. A few years ago a novel called Master of the Universe was published. The agent and publisher for 50 Shades of Grey argued the two are nowhere alike however the stories were administered through a plagiarism site and the result was that 89% of 50 Shades of Grey is dead on with the Master of the Universe novel. Yet the author gets a 7-figure deal.
What trips me out though is how now erotica is becoming hot all of a sudden because of this book, as if it didn’t exist until now. First off erotica has been around a long time. I coin Zane as the erotica Queen! She, along with a few other erotic authors, (erotica not romance) have been blazing for a minute but now some random copy cat publishes a plagiarized piece of work and now erotica is ‘in’? Did she invent it? Did I miss something? Can someone explain it to me?
I would really like to know what Zane thinks about it.
Peace and luv!
