Erotic Twilight Fanfic Duo Nabs 5-Book Deal With Simon & Schuster

Congratulations, writers of Beautiful Bastard, you just got a five-book deal for creating hot, steamy Twilight fanfiction.

Seriously though, good on them.

We previously reported fanfic authors Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings (who go by the pen name Christina Lauren) had landed a two-book deal with Simon & Schuster for their workThe Office. That was reworked into Beautiful Bastard, which will be released February 12, 2013, and a second book, Beautiful Stranger, will come out May 28, 2013. The premise, as written by The Hollywood Reporter:

The Office, which reimagined the Edward Cullen-Bella Swan relationship as a steamy love/hate romance between a boss and his assistant, was one of the pioneers of the Twilight fanfic genre, generating more than two million downloads, before being taken offline by the author in 2009…Beautiful Bastard tells the story of the whip-smart Chloe Mills, an intern at a company who is about to earn her MBA and embark on successful career, but finds her herself caught up in a steamy love/hate relationship with her ‘exacting, blunt inconsiderate’ boss Bennett Ryan.”

Today is the 25th Anniversary of “Star Trek: The Next Generation”‘s debut on television, one of the most significant pop culture events in my life. Here’s why…

This summer, I visited an old friend in San Francisco and we got to talking about writing.

“I still think the best thing you ever wrote was that ‘Star Trek’ book,” he said.

“I was 12. I’m not sure that’s a compliment,” I said, because, um, I write for a living now and I sure hope my skills have improved.

“No, I just mean that your dedication to it was just so pure,” he said. “I mean, think about it — you wrote a novel when you were 12.” Keep reading »
