So what does a publisher do if they need a 50 Shades style erotic novel or two, but don't have a back catalog or bottomless budget?
309 did it
the under-the-counter way
by just hijacking and rewriting classics, but it seems this particular solution is in the air:Take a classic, and sex it up.
Total E-bound is doing
saucy versions of Austen and Conan Doyle
. At least they are giving the original author co-credit....
I am unconvinced that there is a big market for classics verbatim with sex added, rather than written-from-scratch pastiche. But time will tell.
