Harry, A History

Hi all! Harry, A  History comes out officially in two days and so far the reaction has been touching. Thank you! Some announcements:

First, I will have my first-ever booksigning at the Borders in Columbus Circle, Manhattan, this coming Wednesday at 7 p.m. I hope to see you there! You can RSVP for the event or invite others HERE. You can get a map to the event here!

If you live in NYC and would like to be part of a special project on Election Day, please shoot me an email at

Third, I have posted another piece of the Jo interview, this time about the spoiler derbies that happened before the release of each book after PoA.

Next, I'm issuing two challenges to help spread the word: A YouTube Vlogging challenge which you can read more about here (. Secondly, if you have a Facebook/MySpace/LiveJournal, whatever, and want to help get the word out, in the coming week change your profile pic to either the book's artwork (a large version of which you can download here), or yourself holding the book. We'll put them all together somehow. Thank you in advance!

If you like you can get more updates by joining the Harry, A History Facebook group here. More coming soon!

Hello – this is really cool, and I tried to send and email to Melissa about it, but whenever I click submit on the feedback form it tells me that “Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage”. Is this a problem with your site, or my computer??? Sorry if this isn’t the right place to ask, but I’m new here, and I don’t know exactly how this is supposed to work. I’d be glad if you could help!

Oklahoma is really in need of some Harry Potter Fandom action. Even if I am the only person who thinks so. So can you do a book signing here, please?

Posted by ravesfave on November 03, 2008, 03:23 PM report to moderator

squee amazon has just shipped the book:) The not so squee-worthy part is that since I live in Norway the book probably won’t arrive until next month…
