E L James is USA TODAY’s Choice For Author of the Year

Greyt choice!!

USA TODAY‘s decision is based in part on the fact that “…an unknown Brit proved that Americans can be passionate, feverish, even obsessive readers,” and that the Fifty Shades Trilogy has sold 35 million copies this year in the USA alone.

With corresponding movies in the works, there’s no sign of things slowing down any time soon, either. Yet despite the whirlwind that has become ‘The Year of Fifty,’ the author is finding time to rework her first novel, which she tells USA Today may end up being two novels when all is said and done.

Q: Have you set a publication date for your new novel?

A: No pub date.

Q: Another trilogy?

A: I think it will be two books.
