Harry Potter Digitalized: Will J.K Rowling Sign Off the eBook Deal?
J.K Rowling, the heiress to the Harry Potter legend, now contemplates the release of Harry Potter books in eBook format so the e-readers can easily catch up on the beloved wizard boy through their Kindle or iPad apps.
The question comes, whether Rowling will sign the eBook deal or not? as, previously, she did not show much enthusiasm to the offer.
According to Neil Blair, Rowling’s agent,
"We are continuing with our evaluation of all options relating to Harry Potter eBooks,"
On the subject of release in e-format, during the eBook craze, a few years back, Blair maintained,
"This has not been an area that we have sought to license," he further added, "we monitor the Internet and take appropriate action".
Rowling is estimated to roll in a £100 million on top of the £620 million she has already amassed.
According to Liz Thomson, the editor of BookBrunch,
"Experts believe that move could revolutionize the world of electronic publishing, triggering rocket sales of e-book readers such as Kindle and the iPad."
