The erotic Fifty Shades trilogy may be reviled and banned by some, but with all three books topping the best-sellers list, the phenomenon is far from fading any time soon. E L James, the raunchy mind behind the bondage saga, has added fuel to the fire by telling USA Today that she has two more novels hidden away. She says one is another erotic novel — no mention whether it revisits kink master Christian Grey and dewy college student Anastasia Steele — and the other is a paranormal young adult novel. James considers Fifty Shades a hard act to follow. ”I’ve got several more good ideas but how do you follow this?” she says. “I’ve set the bar quite high in terms of storytelling.”
Should her next erotic novel return to the Fifty Shades world? Will her YA novel follow the Twilight vein?
