E.L. James, the breakout novelist behind the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy, has skyrocketed to fame—and now has the fortune to prove it!

The author of the notoriously naughty novels has recently come into her own, coming into a ton of cash on the journey. In fact, aside from the already impressive $5 million dollar payout when the film option was purchased by Universal, James has been making a shocking $1.4 million dollars a week off the sales of the three novels, which—not surprisingly given that figure—are flying off bookseller’s shelves in both her native UK and internationally! At this rate, she is projected to get a royalty check in excess of $20 million at the end of the fiscal year—no small feat for an author virtually unknown this time last year!

What do you think of E.L. James success? Deserved for pioneering the way for “pop” erotic fiction, or, given the fact that many are critical of the bad writing and weak plots, completely shocking and undeserved?
