Fifty Shades of Grey author EL James is ringing in the birthday of her fictional anti-hero, Christian Grey, by releasing the fourth book in her series of erotic novels in the dark hours of Thursday morning.
Grey, which is told from the perspective of the eponymous business tycoon, has been the top spark pre-order book of 2015, and the novel will become an instant publishing sensation when the ebook is released at midnight, US time.
Fans in Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong, where the book is already on sale, have already branded it “perfect” on social media.
James declared the surprised launch earlier in June in one of publishing’s best-kept secrets. She was encouraged to write the fourth book by fans who had asked her to tell Grey’s side of the story of his erotic relationship with virginal college student Anastasia Steele.
The author has already teased readers with a chapter of Grey’s narration at the end of her third book, Fifty Shades Freed.
“Christian is a complex character,” James said when she announced the book’s release date on Instagram, “and readers have always been fascinated by his desires and motivations.”
