NEW YORK, N.Y. - A new book from E L James will be a how-to guide on one of life's most enduring passions: writing.

Vintage Books announced Monday that James has collaborated with the publisher on "Fifty Shades of Grey: Inner Goddess (A Journal)."

It combines professional advice from the million-selling author and lined pages for readers to set down their own ideas, or "inner goddess." Vintage says the journal will have a soft leather cover, "bonded." Vintage is a paperback imprint of Random House Inc.

James' erotic trilogy was acquired by Vintage last year and has sold more than 70 million copies worldwide. The "Inner Goddess" journal will be published May 1.
