Harry Potter = no $$?

Anyone read this on Yahoo yet? Harry Potter magic spells losses for booksellers

I think it's interesting that a book I assumed would make huge profits for booksellers is in fact a loss due to price slashing. I have noticed that several independent booksellers around town have closed their doors because they can't offer the discounts big chain booksellers can offer.

I'm off to do some serious typing and am starting to add articles and clippings to a big binder I have on book promotion. I read an author should start thinking about promotion 2 years in advance and I may as well get started now! :)

I read the article! I really didn't realize that was how HP was affecting booksellers. Sad.

And's crossing my fingers that you are just as successful with your debut! :)
