E-books casts a spell on Harry Potter

J.K. Rowling finally relented to the e-book phenomenon.   Off the top of my head, I think this is the only major series released in the last ten years not available in a e-book format.  However, there is more to this story.  Rowling is going to be the publisher and retailer of the e-book versions of her book.  She is setting up a specific website to handle the sales.   Is it just me, but I do see a lot of dollar signs?

Monday Meeting and 15k Challenge

John (Tim) has set a discussion topic for Monday night’s meeting: a character’s internal motivations. He suggests listening to the latest episode of Writing Excuses here: http://www.writingexcuses.com/2011/06/12/writing-excuses-6-2-internal-motivations/ to hear what they have to say about it.

Also, time is running out on the 15k Short Fiction Challenge. Remember, back in January, I challenged everyone to write 15k words of new short fiction by the end of June? Well, so far I know of only three members who have hit or expect to hit the goal. You still have a couple of weeks–can you make it?
