And let us know that JK Rowling is hard at work on the last book in her series. Currently she’s trying to decide between two titles. I think she should call Book Seven “Harry Potter and the Bawling Literary Set” as everyone from readers to publishers to movie goers are going to be crying a river wrapping their heads around the fact that this is the Last One.
Writers owe this lady a huge debt. She’s created a draft in the industry that we can all follow. The YA/Children’s market has picked up; the SFF market has never been stronger; and she’s creating a generation of readers who will think nothing of picking up an 800-pound book.
Sniff. I’m getting a little verklempt myself.
