J.K. Rowling Announces Pottermore!

As you have no doubt heard, J.K. Rowling made a new Harry Potter announcement just the other day, but it in fact wasn't a book. It was however, a website, called Pottermore, that she could use to expand on the books, and create a good experience for young readers and writers.

Pottermore

Announcement

She probably is, she has basically refused to write anymore books. She promised and encyclopedia, this could be her way out of writing it. In my opinion shes doing this because she's trying to lessen the amount of mail she gets from her annoying fans.

She said in a interview that she has received hundreds upon hundreds of ideas and stories about Harry, and Pottermore was a place for us to put them instead.

So basically it's her saying "Would you kindly f*** off and post your crappy fan fiction on this web site instead of sending it to me"?

More than likely. Can't blame her.

I'm not a Harry Potter fan in the least and I'm sick of hearing about it so I can only imagine how she feels. It's like an actor who has one great role and gets typecast as that kind of character for the rest of his life.

Ok, so HP made this woman rotten rich and to think she could barely afford her tuition fees back when she started writing the saga. She owes much to that four-eyed wizard. If she can't stand hearing about HP anymore, I'd be more than willingly to answer all her mail in exchange for 40% of the sales since the first book.



PS: share is negotiable.

Well I can't really blame her... I mean... most fan fiction makes you want to commit suicide if you ever read it. She just doesn't want to have to kill herself and she thought "Well, I'll find a way to make more money out of these people instead of sending them to fanfiction.net"

Smart woman.
