Aaron Davidson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Employees at book publisher Random House are getting a little something extra in their Christmas stockings this year, a $5,000 bonus.

The bonus, which will be the same for top editors as their secretaries, follows a particularly good year for the publishing house in large part from the success of the erotic hit Fifty Shades of Grey.

Markus Dohle announced the bonuses at a company Christmas party on Wednesday, spokesman Stuart Applebaum confirmed to ABC News.

Fifty Shades of Grey has sold over 20 million copies and has been at the top of best seller lists for nearly a year.   The company has also had successes this year with Gillian Flynn’s mystery Gone Girl and John Grisham’s latest offering, The Racketeer.

The bonuses will arrive in employee pay checks next month. Those employees who have been with the company at least a year will receive the full $5,000. Newer employees will receive a prorated bonus.
