• How E L James Made A Fan's Day - In A Sex Toy Warehouse

    E L James visits Lovehoney

    Flipping open the iconic jacket, E L James wrote the message: "Sara, Your box was packed by E L James x" and of course, "Laters Baby".

    After some mega fangirling and an epic selife session with staff (E L James has clearly built selfie stamina over the past couple of years!) we were ready to say Laters, Baby and wave Erika off, back to Hollywood where a very special trailer was just about to air...
