…until Deathly Hallows, and if you haven’t read this interview with JK Rowling, I recommend you do so.
Upon the release of the last book, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, Ms. Rowling granted one interview, which happened to be to Emerson (of Mugglenet) and Melissa (of The Leaky Cauldron and PotterCast.) That’s right – instead of doing the traditional media circuit, she instead talked to two superfans who have done more to promote and analyze the books than just about anyone alive – such is the power of teh interwebz.
It’s a seriously in depth and fascinating interview, and worth reading. Here’s Ms. Rowling talking about why she chose Emerson and Melissa.
Oh, right: if you haven’t read Half Blood Prince, then omg spoilers.
