Comic-Con 2012: ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Book Signings

You know how they used to and still do introduce Kiss as the hottest band in the world?  Well, the same can be applicable with every housewife’s favorite S&M book title, Fifty Shades of Grey.  Next month, E L James, the author of the Fifty Shades trilogy, will be signing books July 12, 4-5:30 at the San Diego Convention Center.  The ticketed afternoon event is free.  This is the author’s first book signing on the West Coast.  First published in May 2011, Fifty Shades of Grey follows the relationship of 27-year-old billionaire Christian Grey and college student Anastasia Steele.  Subsequent novels in the series, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed explore the couple’s deepening relationship.  Since Vintage Books acquired the books in March 2012, the trilogy has sold 16 million copies in the U.S. in all formats.  I guess my question is legitimately, how are they going to make these movies with even a an R-rating?

E L James is a former TV executive, wife and mother of two based in West London.  Since early childhood she dreamed of writing stories that readers would fall in love with, but put those dreams on hold to focus on her family and her career.  She finally plucked up the courage to put pen to paper with her first novel, Fifty Shades of Grey.


ONE HECK OF A PROMOTER!!! Also a Dreamer, Producer, Agent of Love, Film Lover, Writer of Screenplays and a Devoted Apostle to all things Ford Mustangs (the real ones with V8's!). Some of my favorite films include FIGHT CLUB, MOULIN ROUGE, THE DARK KNIGHT, STAR WARS alongside television shows such as SEINFELD, 24, SANFORD & SON and even the often loathed in the geek community BIG BANG THEORY. Outside of my three lives I live I also enjoy spending time with my girlfriend and our three girls (of the furry kind).

    I read the series twice. I loved it! I can’t wait to see who will play Christian in the movie. And I agree about the rating, I am curious to see how they handle all those hot, kinky sex scenes. Thats pretty cool that she is having a signing at Comic Con!!!!
