A British publisher has paid six figures for the rights to Fifty Shades of Grey by former British TV exec EL James. The erotic novel, which was first published by a small Australian press, is the story of a submissive-dominant relationship between a 27 year-old billionaire and a student.

The series originally started as fanfics based on Stephenie Meyer‘s Twilight universe, but are now at the top of the New York Times bestseller list.

Erotica is now a booming genre, thanks in part due to eReader sales skyrocketing. The books are now available in eBook form in the UK and will see print starting on April 12th.

If you’re interested in reading EL James’ new erotic fiction series, you can find the best price for Fifty Shades of Grey at Amazon.com.
