Jk Rowling Harry Potter
When she was on a delayed train journey from Manchester to London, Rowling was a secretary and researcher at Amnesty International. It was a tale about a youngster who discovers that he is a wizard and attends wizardry school. She started writing it as soon as she returned to her flat at Clapham Junction, which she lives.
In 1995, she received the services of a literary organization and sent her manuscript to twelve different publishing companies, but all of them dismissed her.
After a year, Bloomsbury Publishing gave her the go-ahead and a 1,500-pound advance on the manuscript. He provided the first chapter of the book to his daughter, who was eight years old, to read and review.
Her desire to publish the remainder of the book was aided by her apprehension, which helped reorganise her decision to publish the book. Rowling was promptly awarded a grant which would allow her to write the second book in the series.
After an initial print run of only 1,000 copies, the sleeper novel was initially received for promotion and recognition, and in 1998, Scholastic Inc. became victorious in an auction to obtain the right to publish the novel.
Scholastic published the first book in the United States in 1998 under the rebranded title Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone, a decision which Rowling now acknowledges dissatisfied with and regrets declaring yes to the change.
This first book in the series would be the first of a series that would eventually consist of seven volumes, and it would also be the beginning of a significant literary, cinematic, and licensing industry.
The most recent two Harry Potter books, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, sold a combined total of nine and eleven million copies in the world. There are currently 65 books available in different areas of the world.
The book was published at a time when readership in children was declining, and when it was reported that young people were leaving books at rapid rates in favour of the growing internet.

The novels were such a huge success that they quickly became a blockbuster film series that Warner Brothers began producing in 1998 after paying a seven-figure sum for the rights to adapt the first two books.
The first film based on the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone, was released in November of 2001, while the second film based on the series, Harry Potter, and the Prisoner of Azkaban, both, was later published in the years 2004 and 2005.
The second and third film adaptations were released in July 2007 and July 2009 respectively. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was the subject of a split series, which was both titled and released in November 2010 and July 2011, respectively.
All of the scripts, with the exception of the sixth movie, written by Rowling, were designed by Steve Kloves. She was able to have some creative control by reading through each screenplay before it was filmed. Rowling''s primary desire for the films was that they be filmed entirely within the United Kingdom, with British actors playing all of the roles.
In 2013, Warner Bros. and Rowling announced their intention to develop a series of five films based on Newt Scamander, the author of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Rowling will also compose the scripts and produce them.
