EL James takes Fifty Shades of heat on Twitter

NEW YORK (AP) — Twitter had a bit of fun Monday at the expense of EL James.

The hashtag "AskELJames" trended nationwide as the "Fifty Shades of Grey" writer took questions, including some not-ready-for-prime-time doozies, but surely she's immune at this point to hurt feelings.

Among the printable, cheeky queries:

— "Is it true that you're actually just a burlap sack full of bad ideas and spiders?"

— "When do you think your writer's block will kick in? Signed Ev R Hopeful"

— "did you use a blow up doll as your characterization inspiration for Ana?"

— "Is it only ok for Christian to stalk, coerce, threaten & manipulate Ana because he's hot, or is it also ok because he's rich?"

For those under rocks, James authored three books in an erotic trilogy involving BDSM sex between a handsome, emotionally damaged billionaire and a young woman whom he introduces to his rough-sex lifestyle. She recently put out a fourth book that tells the story of the first book all over again from Christian Grey's point of view rather than that of Anastasia Steele.

Oh, and there was a movie. Oh, and at least two more movies are planned.

James let loose among questions she did answer that she has written another book and is halfway through yet another, adding:

"Both romances. Not sure when I will finish them. (smiley face)."
