J.K. Rowling

J.K. Rowling said, “That was the best moment of all. Better than anything that has come since, was me seeing it – and it was a real book in a proper, real bookshop and it was wonderful.”

J.K. Rowling’s creation.

This creation of J.K. Rowling has made her one the best and the most creative authors in the world. Just imaging before the first book got first released Harry Potter got knocked back by as many as 12 publishers before it finally got picked up.

J.K. Rowling said….

“My agent rang me and… he was so low key about it!” Rowling told Lauren Laverne in The Guardian. “One publisher had kept it for six months, which obviously gave me a lot of hope, and then they said no. I was devastated. Then [my agent] phoned me up and said, ‘Well, Bloomsbury want it’ – very casual! Not realising he’s giving me the gift of my life. And there was this long pause, and I just said: ‘So… you’re saying I am going to be published?’ I was beside myself.”
