“I’m into BDSM – bards, dragons, sorcery, and magick.” – just one of Earl Grey’s fifty shames…
If you’re a pop culture junkie who enjoys a good laugh, Fifty Shames of Earl Grey comes highly recommended. This parody of EL James’ Fifty Shades of Grey manages to poke fun at Gen-Xers, Millennials, and the Twilight series, in a way that’s not mean spirited, but absurdly hilarious. Seriously, this book reads like it was co-written by Mel Brooks and Weird Al, with input from Dr. Ruth.
As the tale begins, the young, drop dead gorgeous, and filthy rich tycoon Earl Grey meets the naïve coed Anna Steal, and decides to make her his own. But will Anna be able to get past Mr. Grey’s fifty shames? Perhaps more importantly, can Anna stop picking her nose?!

Fifty Shames was penned by author Fanny Merkin, better known as Andrew Shaffer. Shaffer, whose writing appears in various publications, also reviews romance, erotica, and women’s fiction for RT Book Reviews magazine. I’m looking forward to reading his latest book Literary Rogues: A Scandalous History of Wayward Authors.
Now I’m not one to go round repeating gossip, but if you read Shaffer’s Twitter feed, one can glean that his special sweetie is erotica author Tiffany Reisz.
