Another Piece of Twilight Fan Fiction Gets a Book Deal

Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings, who combine to write as Christina Lauren, have signed a deal with Simon & Schuster to release two books based on The Office, the very popular piece of Twilight fan-fic that was first written by Hobbs. Sadly, it isn't about Edward selling paper and smugly looking at the camera, while Bella paints and does a talking head. No, it follows ambitious intern Chloe Mills and her love-hate relationship with her dickish boss, Bennett Ryan. 
First released in 2009, it received over 2 millions hits within that year and led the way for Fifty Shades of Grey. The first book in the series, Beautiful Bastard, is set for a February 2013 release, with a sequel, Beautiful Stranger, scheduled for May 2013. This means the title "The Office" is still available for your vampire Jim and werewolf Pam fan-fic.

For the record I watched 'New Moon' this week, second in the series (never saw the first). It was dreadful. Nothing happened for well over two hours, other than the pale bloke (vampire) and the long haired bloke (wolf) standing in 'forlorn postures', and the woman lead looking forlornly out windows.

Just awful.
