E.L. james author fifty shadesAfter having been actively involved on the Vancouver set of the Fifty Shades film, E.L. James is back to her old tricks. And by old tricks, I mean she's writing again. Oh my!

The author took to Instagram the other day and teased followers with a photo that has fans flipping out that the author may have another book in the series comin' down the pipeline.

Check it out ...

The author captioned the telling pic with, "It's been a while ..." Since when, Erika? Since you worked on a book, in general, or since you last "met with" Christian Grey via word processor?

Speculation ranges from this being a fourth Fifty Shades installment to a spinoff from the series to another book completely, which James teased in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly:

I've written another book. ... It's very different than Fifty.

I'm guessing it's the latter ... which would obviously be a bummer for Christian and Ana fans. But who knows? If E.L. has the same luck this time around, this "very different" book may end up being a whole new phenomenon unto itself!

What do you think E.L. James has up her sleeve?
