EL James to Release New 'Fifty Shades' Book: We Can't Wait

new fifty shades book from Christian's point of view

Your summer reading list just got a whole lot steamier! The mastermind behind the Fifty Shades of Grey erotic trilogy has fans weak in the knees once again after dropping a huge bombshell. Get this one -- EL James is releasing a new book, which will be told from Christian's point of view!


And there's even more good news! Those of us who have been dying to get inside the mind of a bondage enthusiast have just a few more weeks to wait! This new novel, titled Grey, will hit the shelves Thursday, June 18th, which just happens to be the famous character's birthday. 

In a press release, the best-selling author explained her decision to share Mr. Grey's side of the story:

Christian is a complex character and readers have always been fascinated by his desires and motivations, and his troubled past. Also, as anyone who has ever been in a relationship knows, there are two sides to every story. It's been a great pleasure to return to my happy place-writing, being with Christian and Ana in their universe, and working with the fantastic team at Vintage.

In case you want to keep an eye out (pun intended) for this new novel at your local bookstore or library, here's what the cover will look like:

(Is it just me or can you already hear cash registers ringing across the globe?)

While she stands to amass a fortune from this new tome, (it's 576 pages, according to Amazon.com) and we can only imagine a film version can't be too far behind, James insists she's written it for her curious and devoted audience. The book is dedicated "to those readers who asked ... and asked ... and asked ... and asked for this." 

No stranger to masochism, it's nice James didn't force fans to beg too long for it.
