JK Rowling has a new site. Rowling goes digital.

Right now there's not much on it but come October she's promising lots of exciting stuff for her old and new readers--extras, backstories, and a chance to enter Harry's world. This is what she has to say: “It’s a great way to give something back to the fans. I still receive a huge amount of stories, drawings and ideas and the site is a great way to continue the conversation.”

Also, this site will be the only place where readers can purchase digital versions of the Harry Potter books. Rowling says that ebooks are here to stay. Lucky for her, though, that she gets to solely control how much each book costs. We other authors don't get to control percentages of each book that goes into our pocket. Perhaps that's why I'm not so rah-rah about the whole thing quite yet (among other reasons).
