Is EL James writing another Fifty Shades novel?

The writer has posted an intriguing image on her Instagram account, sparking speculation that another novel starring Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele is on the way...


Fifty Shades fans are getting all hot under the collar.


And this time it’s got nothing, absolutely nothing, to do with the upcoming movie starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson.

Christian Grey lovers are going back to the root of their steamy fantasies and pinning their hopes on another novel by author EL James, instead. 

The writer, who has enjoyed unprecedented success since her erotic fan-fiction was published in 2011, has sparked rumours that she might be sitting down to write a fourth Fifty Shades tale, by posting this intriguing photo on Instagram:

Now, we know what you’re thinking, this is just an up-close and personal look at EL James’ keyboard. But the keys F, I, T and Y are clearly visible.

And although James has neither denied or confirmed that she’s thinking of continuing the story of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, with nearly 4,000 likes, her fans are clearly excited. 

The Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy follows the increasingly x-rated bedroom exploits of S&M obsessed millionaire Christian Grey and innocent college graduate Anastasia Steele. Sam Taylor-Johnson’s film adaptation, starring Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson, Rita Ora and Jennifer Ehle, is currently post-production. 

Fifty Shades of Grey will be in UK cinemas February 2015
