If you are one of the few, who hasn’t read the Fifty Shades Trilogy
yet, then you might or might not be interested, in this post . Heck, you probably aren’t reading Stacyknows.com either. I think this is my 6th post at the 50 Shades trilogy. In fact, when my readers heard there was a luncheon in Westchester, they just assumed I was the hostess.
Fifty Shades has become a viral phenomenon. A self published novel , originally fan fiction,(fiction written by fans of an original series without actually being a part of it) based on the characters in the Twilight series.
The book is a love story, written from the view of college student Anastasia Steele, who falls for Christian Grey, a character with a proclivity for S and M.
The event was hosted by Lyss Stern, whose company, Divalysscious Moms, “is New York City’s premier socializing network for fabulous moms… think Sex and the City meets Mommy and Me.” The company has been hosting parties of all sorts since 2003, but recently started sponsoring book club events. As Lyss Stern of Divamoms.com said 50 Shades had “ tied women together… and you, the women, were the rope.” She described our “evolution from the sandbox to the red room of pain,” and said that E L James’ writing was “putting women everywhere into a breathless, orgasmic coma.” She told us that these books had let us realize that “it’s okay to admit that we want our needs satisfied.” Ultimately, she thanked James for “writing a book that was a community service to women… and men!”
E. L. James was WONDERFUL though. E stands for Erika, she wouldn’t tell us what L stands for, so you can just imagine.
I fell in love with her when I saw her on the 20/20 interview a few weeks ago, she is such a normal person.
The author told the women at the luncheon that she’s glad the book is bringing them together to talk about things they don’t normally discuss.
Someone asked and we all wanted to know “Did you write this from experience?” She said she did have one “inappropriate relationship” when she was young, although she would not elaborate on the nature of the impropriety.
More importantly, she answered a question I really cared about “What should we read next?”
She spoke like an average woman who fell into success and is still a relatively normal person. She made us laugh and cheer and 30 minutes of Q and A went by in a flash. For a woman who was at the end of her book tour, she was friendly and gracious while signing books.
The event was sponsored by Joy of Moi intimate accessories. Company owner Jaclyn Colman was offering demonstrations…
each Joy of moi product is truly the “intimate accessory” and encompasses a full range of superior sensual features that satisfy a multitude of needs

So the Fifty Shades Trilogy has been/is being banned from many libraries across the country because it’s considered porn….
You are in luck. I bought the trilogy and had them signed by E.L. James herself. I might kick myself later, but I want you to have them. Follow the instructions below and the trilogy is yours.
