Bloomsbury (whose Beedle the Bard page is here) has updated their YouTube channel today with a video of Jo answering questions asked by children at the Beedle release party (originally reported by Leaky here), about whether her teachers knew she was a good story writer (not sure but it was her favorite subject; least was chemistry, which is why Snape is the potions teacher), Children’s High Level Group, her fears (spiders, like Ron and Rupert), and what Edinburgh and real-world places she based her fictional locations on (none).

There’s also a video of Jo signing books, reading from The Fountain of Fair Fortune, and a Q&A with a reporter in which she talks about her current project – perhaps.
