JK Rowling Is Large And In Charge


JK Rowling just announced the purpose of www.pottermore.com

Lots of us had been wondering what this pottermore concept was all about. Some guessed at a new series. Others thought a new Harry Potter video game was afoot. Well, it turns out that JK somehow had the foresight to retain all of the e-rights to the Harry Potter Series way back in the 90's—and now she's not afraid to use them.


What can I say with certainty?

  • It is pretty clear who is holding the sceptre in this arrangement
  • We can expect many more readers will be picking up e-readers to enjoy the new JK Rowling experience
  • The publishing houses have just lost their grip on their A-list
  • Steven Stephen King and Company will be next

More news when it drops.
