Is EL James Going to Write Freed (from Grey’s PoV)?

Earlier in the week I went to a meet and greet (stay tuned for my full account of that, coming soon!) with EL James. And she briefly mentioned Freed. This is essentially what she had to say about it:

While there’s no 100%, concrete plan to write Freed (from Christian Grey’s perspective), she didn’t completely rule it out either, which brings me hope! She mentioned that she knew it was something a ton of people were hoping for, (she was clearly pretty in tune with her fans and aware of the demand) she’s just apprehensive about writing certain parts of that novel from Grey’s perspective (mainly the Mrs. Robinson stuff) and she felt she needs to “get back in that mindset” (meaning the Fifty Shades world) before she can write Freed.

So that’s the news for now! I’m glad to hear she’s aware of how her fans want this last book, and I like that she hasn’t ruled it out. It’s just on the back burner for now, but it is something she’s apparently hoping to get back too at some point!

  1. IMHO: Christian’s POV of his love for Anna in FREED after she accepts his proposal is “far beyond” the editorial version in the original book. There were several other instances of depth in the Darker version than in the Grey version. If this author is able to make it happen, a FREED versions would be so welcome!

  2. Just finished reading Darker from Christians POV, she literally needs to write the last book. It’s killing me already and already contemplating reading them again 😂

  3. I really want to understand Christians view on the baby and everything after that, what was working round in his head when he realised Ana was in danger etc. cant wait, really want this book. I lopve the series and hearing it from Christians perspective really help understand his change and growth and that how he came to care x

    1. Previously I read that she was concerned about getting back into the hard-core dominant submissive relationship with Mrs. Robinson. Since she only has one scene in the whole book of Fifty Shades Freed I don’t understandWhy she can’t put her energies into Freed. Again I am very disappointed that she is not following through with the Christian trilogy. Again I won’t read anything until she does.

  4. I to am disappointed that EL James is not currently working on Freed from Christian’s POV. I’m still hoping that she decides to write the last book and soon. We have been waiting for it for a long time.

  5. These books are more than about bdsm, it is about being abused and thinking one way about yourself to finding out there is love and you can have that. Bravo for writing them and I can only hope that you write perhaps the hardest one to make the series complete.

  6. I am very disappointed that EL James is not working on freed the sixth book from Christian’s point of you. She has left the store incomplete. I will not read another word that she writes unless she does finish what she started with the 50 shades series

    1. I second that opinion. I actually enjoyed it from Christian’s understanding of the affair, than I did from the whiny little girl’s. I feel the tale is not complete without the male’s side of the story. Please EL write “Freed” from Christian’s pov. And Soon.

  7. Why write 2 books from Christians pov and not complete the series? The second kinda of left you hanging with regards.to some unfinished business between a couple characters. I think not writing it is doing a disservice to your fans and leaving us hanging.

    1. She did make it seem like she knew it was a book she had to write to finish the series and put it to rest, but I think she just isn’t in a place where she wants to delve into the relationship between Christian and Mrs. Robinson and that’s what’s holding her back. But I do hope she writes it soon!

      1. In the time she has procrastinated writing the 3rd book, I could have finished it and I’m not much of a writer. She didn’t seem to have any trouble transitioning through the three books from Ana’s point of view. I think she’s just afraid that when she finishes “Freed” that people will realize she was a “one-hit wonder” and her career will fizzle.
