J.K. Rowling Goes Rogue!
Quote from MBPA Newsletter:
"J.K. Rowling went rogue, bringing out the eBook versions of her bazillion-selling Harry Potter series as an independent publisher (and wiping out the indy pub stigma in one fell swoop -- Thanks, J.K.!)."
This is what you get:
An interesting spin and ebook interactive format. YEAH BABY!
FINALLY the Harry Potter series will be in e-books!
You can get it in e-books and audio books with multiple languages being offered at Pottermore.com, it has it all social networking with a twist of computer gaming and an online store.
"You can't hold back progress," Rowling said. "E-books are here and they are here to stay."
No new Harry Potter series though. However, she is releasing an 18,000 word snippet of new material highlighting characters and settings.
Yep, she is selling the ebooks in the new slick format direct from her own site, not on Amazon but Rowlings says the books will be compatible with e-readers such as Kindle, Sony's Reader -tada and the iPad.
