Erotica for Scots publisher

Dundee-based publisher DC Thomson, home of The Broons and the People's Friend, has announced a range of erotic fiction.

The first in the Liaison series, titled Hushed Words, features a naive young woman drawn into an unorthodox relationship with a wealthy businessman, in a plot reminiscent of the bestselling 50 Shades of Grey books.

In the second title, Tribal Connections, a Scottish youth worker travels to the United States to meet a man she has met on the internet.

Maggie Seed, commissioning editor of the series – which has been nicknamed Fifty Shades of Tay – said they would replace My Weekly Pocket Novels.

Meanwhile, an erotic novel by a 26-year-old Edinburgh University graduate set in the world of the capital's New Town has become a US hit. On Dublin Street, by Samantha Young, beat JK Rowling's The Casual Vacancy to the top of the Kindle USA charts.
