50 Shades of Grey author EL James rakes in £33m

Sales of the sadomasochistic trilogy topped 100m this year
50 Shades of Grey author EL James has left her rivals firmly under her heel as she recorded earnings of £33.4m in a year, almost four times higher than the reported £8.6m earned by JK Rowling last year. The exceptionally good sales of the sadomasochistic trilogy, which topped the 100m sales mark this year, may swell further with a film due out in 2015.
