MORE THAN MILLION COPIES SOLD WORLDWIDEWhen literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she.
Here are three tactics she employed that were particularly strong: 1.
She posted lots of personal photos. Sharing photos of yourself on Facebook may seem creepy, but it builds a connection with your potential audience. She posted creative, inspirational photos.
Done correctly, this sort of content can add a whole new dimension to your fictional work — and readers love engaging with that. She shared related content.
James also picked up related posts to share on her page, such as the work of a baker who created Fifty Shades-inspired cupcakes. Of course, not many authors can count on having cupcakes crafted in honor of their books, but authors can sift through other Facebook photos from similarly themed pages and share them on their own. It amounts to engaging with the community. Speaking of community, James utilized and engaged with her fans better than most authors ever do — traditional or otherwise.
And this was equally instrumental to her success. Of course, she started her journey by publishing episodic pieces of her Twilight fanfiction on a fanfiction site. But from there, she actively encouraged feedback and then utilized the feedback she received.
James understood this and used it to both improve her writing and encourage a community of followers who became emotionally invested in her work. The key here is actively listening to the feedback. James used the feedback she received to internalize the fact that her sexy stuff was the most exciting, and that setting her stories in the Twilight universe was too limiting.
The adjustments she then made were exactly what readers wanted. She was only able to prove this, however, because she self-published. Self-publishing grants authors certain advantages and abilities that traditional publishing simply does not, like absolute creative control over your work, control over your timing and marketing schedule, and the ability to quickly make your book available to readers across the world.
So the question now becomes, how can indie authors emulate E. Simply put, indie authors today need to focus on all the things E. James did well: engaging with a community of readers who can simultaneously help you improve and widen the reach of your work, building your own website and author platform early on, and focusing on creating genuinely relatable and captivating stories. Plus, if the plot and characters sounds a bit like "Twilight" fan fiction, it's because they're modeled after them.
The fantasy starts when he's into it and ends when he's done," she said. The heroine in French author Pauline Reage's "Story of O" consented to being whipped and branded more than 50 years before Anastasia Steele signed Christian Grey's non-disclosure agreement and terms for becoming his submissive in "Fifty Shades of Grey. Romance readers, known for their voracious literary appetites, were among the first adopters of e-books, said Michelle Renaud, spokeswoman for publisher Harlequin, which has been carrying erotic novels since They were instant hits, drawing attention of fans and Vintage Books, which acquired the rights in March and published them as e-books first and then as paperbacks.
The major difference is that it has somehow become a part of current pop culture, of the zeitgeist. People won't stop talking about it, so it perpetuates the sales, perpetuates the mythos, of this work as some sort of watershed for erotic fiction," said Mala Bhattacharjee, features editor of RT Book Reviews, the pioneering literary review journal formerly known as Romantic Times.
After acquiring English rights in March, Vintage Books released digital editions of all three books, followed by print versions in April featuring relatively tame covers compared with bodice-rippers of yore. Where one might expect two milky bodies intertwined, the covers of books one and two feature a gray silk tie and a bedazzled face mask.
The formula seems to have paid off, and since then, the romance industry has been keen to reap the benefits of judging a book by its cover. Not long after the series took off, Harlequin and other publishers began reissuing old titles with toned-down covers.
For whatever reason, the classic 'clinch' covers on a lot of romance novels tend to carry a stigma of being 'old-fashioned,' so the covers on 'Fifty Shades' may have made the books more approachable for a larger range or readers," RT Book Reviews Editor Audrey Goodson said. It simply proves that while covers may play some role in readers' preferences, it's what's between the covers that really counts.
As time goes on you, have to refresh and update your way of speaking to your audience. When Berkley Books took over the title in May, the cover art changed to an image of a pair of cufflinks. The title is No. Cufflinks and keychains can be just as evocative as bare skin.
