Congratulations to E.L. James, Named on Vanity Fair's New Establishment list 2012!..



#24 E. L. James

AGE: 49. 
LAST YEAR’S RANKING: New. 
SPHERE OF INFLUENCE: The only thing that threatens to overshadow the success of James’s erotic trilogy is the author’s own rags-to-riches story. Writing under the nom de plume Snowqueens Icedragon, James started Fifty Shades of Grey as a serialized piece of Twilight-inspired fan fiction.

The self-published novel was released as an e-book in 2011 before claiming the top three spots on the New York Times best-seller list. After an extensive bidding war that netted the first-time author $5 million, the series is being fast-tracked for a big-screen adaptation. 

FOR THE RECORD BOOKS: It took Fifty Shades of Grey just 11 weeks to sell one million paperback copies, easily besting the previous record, 36 weeks, set by Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code.
