Fifty Days of Fifty Shades

By October 1st, 2012 4 Comments

Unless you’ve been hiding under a pop culture rock for the past year, odds are good you’ve heard of E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey and its two sequels. Regardless of how you feel about the books, we think the phenomenon has been fascinating to follow in terms of how it has affected our culture (have you seen the book Fifty Shades of Chicken?). Which is where our newest book, Fifty Writers on Fifty Shades of Grey comes in.

Out November 20, Fifty Writers on Fifty Shades of Grey examines the series from a variety of angles: Fifty Shades as erotic fiction, sexual empowerment, fanfiction, pop culture. And the contributors—from romance and erotica authors, to real-world BDSM practitioners, to adult entertainment industry professionals—bring a spectrum of perspectives and insight to the books and their wide-ranging effects. You could even say it’s fifty ways to love (or, in a few cases, hate!) the series.

To celebrate the book’s release (fifty days from tomorrow, October 2) we’re launching an extra-special event: Fifty Days of Fifty Shades. For the next fifty days we’ll be posting a new daily quote from the book on our Tumblr account and the book’s Facebook page, so you can get a little peek into the awesomely varied content and opinions of our fifty contributors. In the biggest book giveaway we’ve ever had on the Smart Pop site, we’ll also be giving away fifty copies of the book.

To check out the excerpt quotes as they’re posted (broken down into the sections of the book their from), and to enter to win, be sure to check back on this blog post on the dates below; we’ll be adding links as the posts go live.
