Another Twi FanFic Title to Movies

Beautiful Bastard  9781476731537

Echoing the history of another well-known book that originated as Twilight fanfiction, Beautiful Bastard, an erotic novel by Christina Lauren (aka, Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings), originally published online as The Office, was picked up for publication by a large New York publishing house (in this case, Simon and Schuster’s Gallery Books imprint) and comes out this week. Rights were just acquired for a movie (the news on that deal sent the book up Amazon’s sales rankings).

WorldCat indicates that several public libraries have ordered Beautiful Bastard, without benefit of professional reviews (there are nearly 400 reviews on GoodReads; warning, some of the images contained in those reviews may not be NSFW). At this point, holds are minimal.

The second book in the (inevitable) series, Beautiful Stranger,(S&S/Gallery) is scheduled for publication on May 28 of this year.

Whats’ happened to the movie of that other book? No director or cast have been announced yet, although rumors are rampant (we’re not buying the one about Kristen Stewart).
