Fifty Shades Author Wants to Dominate Writing Guides

We're happy to present this story from one of our favorite sites, Fox News Magazine. Today, we find out E.L. James is working on a writing guide.

Ever wish you could write a steamy novel like Fifty Shades of Grey? You're in luck, because the author is planning to share her know-how in a new book.

According to the Associated Press, Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James is teaming with the publisher of her popular novels to put out a how-to guide titled Fifty Shades of Grey: Inner Goddess (A Journal). The book is said to include tips from James herself, along with blank journal pages for would-be writers to jot down their stories and ideas.

For fans of James' series, this certainly seems like a novel idea. Others, however, might not be so impressed. In the past, James' work was met with criticism from reviewers (such as The Telegraph and The Chicago Tribune) and authors (such as Chelsea Handler and Salman Rushdie), who knock the books for their writing style.

But regardless of the reviews, James's books have sold more than 70 million copies worldwide. So what do you think? Would you take writing advice from James on your first foray into fiction?
