Fifty Shades Of Grey author EL James has announced her new novel - The Mister - and it is set in Cornwall. The "thrilling and sensual tale", the British writer's first new novel since the Fifty Shades publishing phenomenon, is described as a contemporary romance set in London, Cornwall and eastern Europe.
