Harry, A History Updates: New JKR Snippet and More

Harry, A History

A couple of quick updates: Harry, A History (which you can order here) will spend its second week on the NYT Bestseller list this week, so, thank you again! It's been really exciting, but I know there's more to come, so stay tuned. Second, I have added another vault entry to Harry, A History's web site, this time about Harry/Hermione and other shippy matters. By all means, have fun - it's certainly been earned - but please be nice. :)

Squee! This is amazing, Melissa.

And I’m with SueB; when’s your next book coming out again? ;-) I guess we can give you a little break… You’ve definitely deserved it.

As both Harry and Hermione came from Muggle background and are only childs it is very well thought to include them into a huge Wizards family, where they keep staying in close contact with each other togehter with their respective kids.

I was a fan of the books since 2001 and didn’t get involved in the online community till about 2006. I never knew Harry/Hermione shippers existed until one day I was sifting through forums and was like “… What?!” I didn’t know there was any kind of debate I thought it was clear by POA and GOF was simply downright OBVIOUS! I was a R/Hr shipper but never saw a debate, in my head it was simply, I’m right- you are wrong. It was stupidly heated at the time for some people!

Congrats Melissa!! Harry, A History, is a wonderful companion book to the series. I’ve been a fan since book 1 hit the shelves in the US and your book brought back so many wonderful memories of those times and reading the books for the first time. My entire family is hooked on the series and I can’t wait to buy them each a copy of your book for Christmas!

It was very interesting reading about Jo and how it all began for her and what she went through, as well as the myths you have put to rest. You’ve also opened my eyes to fanfic and Harry and the Potters. I had no idea they existed! Thank you for putting such an incredible book together. You can tell that Jo is very proud of you and the honest support you’ve shown her and her creation.

Keep up the great work and continued success!!

I’m currently doing an oral report on the Harry Potter fandom (spec. dealing with the secod book) for my Chrildren’s Literature class here at Pitt. Someone suggested I get this book for it and I’m so glad they did! The majority of my info is either coming from it, or from sources listed in it. I just wanted to give my personal thanks for the great resource!
