Readers….if you love fine literature….here’s a tidbit that might make you feel a bit…ahem….grey. Last year, EL James was number one in the highest-earning authors list. She earned $95m between June 2012 and June 2013, more than James Patterson at ($91m), and Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins at $55m.
