‘Fifty Shades’ author EL James takes a lashing in Twitter Q&A
NEW YORK — Twitter had a bit of fun Monday at the expense of EL James.
The hashtag “#AskELJames” trended nationwide as the Fifty Shades of Grey writer took questions, including some not-ready-for-prime-time doozies, but surely she’s immune at this point to hurt feelings.
Among the printable, cheeky queries:
#AskELJames Is it true that you’re actually just a burlap sack full of bad ideas and spiders?

When do you think your writer’s block will kick in? Signed Ev R Hopeful #AskELJames

#AskELJames did you use a blow up doll as your characterization inspiration for Ana?

#AskELJames Is it only ok for Christian to stalk, coerce, threaten & manipulate Ana because he’s hot, or is it also ok because he’s rich?

For those under rocks, James authored three books in an erotic trilogy involving BDSM sex between a handsome, emotionally damaged billionaire and a young woman whom he introduces to his rough-sex lifestyle.
She recently put out a fourth book that tells the story of the first book all over again from Christian Grey’s point of view rather than that of Anastasia Steele.
Oh, and there was a movie. Oh, and at least two more movies are planned.
James let loose among questions she did answer that she has written another book and is halfway through yet another, adding:
“Both romances. Not sure when I will finish them. (smiley face).”
