Maria Alberto [...] considers the heretofore unusual but increasingly common course of publication of that bestselling series, from LiveJournal posts to more formal self-publishing, eventually to prestige traditional publishing. Alberto in particular examines the ways the story grew from the highly interactive seeds of fanfiction and its own "slash" genre - and how the sometimes conflicting expectations of romance and "slash" readers jostle.
