FORGET 50 Shades of Gray, all you need to know about writing erotic novels will come from a Mills and Boon workshop tonight.

Mills and Boon will be bearing all about writing erotica during an evening at SilverDell bookshop in Kirkham.

The publisher’s editor, Anna Boatman, will be at the store in Poulton Street from 6pm.

The bookshop’s owner, Elaine Silverwood, said she was “chuffed” to hear the workshop organisers wanted to use SilverDell.

She said: “They say they were writing erotica before 50 Shades of Grey.

“This is something that will be great for us, and great for the area.”

The workshop will provide tips and skills for anyone wanting to write novels that are a little bit steamy.

Elaine is also making a special ice cream for the event – Lips and Whips.

Places are limited. Anyone interested in attending should call (01772) 683444.
