E L James' bestselling Fifty Shades Trilogy has been the publishing phenomenon of the year. So far, the massive success of the book series has lead to a movie deal, merchandising agreement, and a Fifty Shades of Grey inspired classical music album. While all of that news has been very exciting, there is still one thing that the legions of fans want the most - more books that tell the love story of Christian and Ana. So is a fourth book in the Fifty Shades series on the way?
If you take a look at the frequently asked questions on E L James' official site, she answers the question for fans.
Never say never - but they’re on the back burner at the moment, as I have a few other stories to tell first.
Celebrity gossip site Oh No They Didn't! is saying the opposite and has had fans going crazy with a report that an announcement of a fourth instalment in the Fifty Shades book series is imminent. According to the site, a new special edition magazine dedicated to all things Fifty Shades would reveal the exciting news to fans that a fourth book is on its way.
So is it true? I decided to ask EL James herself via Twitter this morning and she was quick to reply slapping down the rumour.

That clears that up, but is there really a Fifty Shades themed magazine coming out? Absolutely! I was in touch with the publishers, Topix Media Lab, and they've confirmed that the special edition magazine - loaded with fun, Fifty inspired articles - will indeed be hitting stands at Barnes & Noble, Walmart, and select locations on August 28th. As for the story ONTD quoted from the glossy, that will remain a mystery until Tuesday. Either way, if E L James is working on a fourth instalment, it looks like she's keeping it under wraps for now.
Would you want to see a fourth book in the Fifty Shades series or are you happy with where the story left off?
