Next E.L. James Novel to be Less Raunchy
You’ve probably at least heard of Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James, even if you haven’t read it — if you haven’t, where’ve you been!?! — and know its erotic themes of domination, bondage, etc, have got a lot of people hot and bothered. Well, it looks like her fans may be in for some disappointment as the author disclosed to the New York Post at Sunday night’s Vanity Fair party that her new book "won't be nearly so raunchy”. She’s also likely to write it under a pseudonym.
James has previously told readers that "I'm looking forward to bringing you some new love stories I've got planned", and that she is unlikely to write another book about the hypersexed stars of Fifty Shades, Ana and Christian. "Never say never – but they're on the back burner at the moment, as I have a few other stories to tell first," she has written on her website.
James also talked about the movie version of Fifty Shades, but revealed no one has been cast, and a filmmaker hasn't been chosen yet, “…so we are still a long way away from casting. I have some ideas...but it may not be who people expect.”
I find it interesting that she’s not going to use her name for the new novel and capitalize on her previous success — obviously she doesn’t need the money! Do you intend to read the new book when it comes out? Even if it contains less ‘raunch’?
