E.L. James' New Book Will Teach You How to Write Erotica

Want to write about someone taking a steamy dump on your chesticles? Well, you're in luck, because E.L. James is set to release a journal/how-to book that schools you in the fine art of leaving it all on the page. You'll scribble down the desires of your inner goddess in an instructional novela that's sure to set your creative muse (and loins!) on fire.

As Vanity Fair reports:

To coax said readers into unfurling their inner goddesses, James will also supply a foreword, excerpts from Fifty Shades of Grey, and an inspirational playlist that helped her write. On an aesthetic note, the Fifty Shades of Grey how-to journal might actually invoke a stronger stigma for its readers than the actual Fifty Shades of Grey book did, thanks to the words "Inner Goddess" scrawled in red cursive on the cover. However, according to Vintage Books publisher Anne Messitte, the guide was designed not to embarrass those holding it in public but to satisfy Fifty Shades of Grey readers who are curious about how James first got started: "Her personal story as a writer is inspirational to many women, and journaling has been an important part of her creative process from the start."
