Writing erotica: How to be the next E L James

Erotica - it's massive at the moment. Ever since E.L. James put pen to paper and came out with the "Fifty Shades of Grey" trilogy, it's all anyone can talk about (and publish).

In fact, research from Play.com has found that erotic fiction now accounts for 14% of all books sold. The books shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize account for only 0.4%. You know what they say, sex sells!

It's no surprise then, that we've had a number of conversations with women who are thinking that maybe they would like to have a go at writing erotica.

We thought it sounded like a good idea, so we decided to get some erotica writing tips from the people in the know - the original romantic fiction publishers, Mills and Boon.

We got some tips from one of their erotica writers Eden Bradley, author of "Forbidden Fruit," and Mills and Boon editor Anna Boatman.

So, are you ready to write some erotica? And are you sitting comfortably? Then let's begin.
