As we are all well aware by now, the Fifty Shades of Grey novels started out as fan fiction, before E.L. James was given a three book deal, which made her a household name around the world. The novels were then picked up for a movie deal, which has had fans buzzing with excitement.
Now, it seems that, thanks to the explosion of the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise, other people have been trying their hand at erotic fan fiction and someone has now had success. That someone is Tara Sue Me, who began posting The Submissive trilogy, which has gone on to receive over 8.5million views.
This has led to New American Library (NAL), an imprint of Penguin Group (USA), handing Tara Sue Me a three book deal for her The Submissive trilogy. Many people are now claiming that The Submissive will become the new Fifty Shades of Grey and, once these erotic novels begin flying off the shelves, the Studios will be battling it out for the rights to The Submissive movie trilogy.
We do have to give a shout out to a guy known only as Brian, who commented on this news, saying, "How come my Vin Diesel fan fiction doesn’t make me this kind of deal?" Nice one Brian!
