E.L. James is celebrating Anastasia Steele's 27th birthday by giving us all a gift — an excerpt from her upcoming book!

Although "Fifty Shades" was originally supposed to be a trilogy, James released a fourth book from the troubled lothario Christian Grey's POV in 2015 and on Saturday, she took to her official Facebook to release an excerpt from yet another new book, tentatively titled "Fifty Shades Darker from Christian's Point of View." She is hoping the book will be released sometime in 2017.

"Good morning, all. I know you're anxiously awaiting the trailer, and that's happening… soon. In the meantime, in honour of Ana's birthday, there's this," she captioned the post, and millions of people creamed their jeans (sorry!) in anticipation.
