When JK Rowling’s new website Pottermore opens its doors this Fall, we’ll provide services to help fans make the most of their ebook purchasing experience.

Pottermore and Google are teaming up to integrate Pottermore with a number of Google products and APIs. So when the series of Harry Potter ebooks launches on Pottermore.com in early October, these bestsellers will be available in the U.S. via the open Google eBooks platform. When you buy a Harry Potter ebook from Pottermore, you will be able to choose to keep it in your Google Books library in-the-cloud, as well as on other e-reading platforms.

Google eBooks can be read on most devices with a modern browser, through the Google Books apps for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, and on more than 80 ereaders.

Pottermore will be the exclusive place to buy Harry Potter ebooks and digital audiobooks. You’ll be able to buy ebooks from the Pottermore Shop, push them to your Google Books library and store them alongside your other Google eBooks. Your other Google eBooks may be purchased from any of more than 250 independent booksellers or from Google directly.

Also under this agreement, Google Checkout will be the preferred third party payment platform for all purchases made on Pottermore.com. When you visit the Pottermore Shop, you’ll be able to pay for your purchases using Google Checkout, in addition to using a debit or credit card.

The Pottermore team also plans to use YouTube for global video broadcasts in the future, as they did for JK Rowling’s announcement of Pottermore in June.

Stay tuned for more Pottermore and Google wizardry on the web this summer, leading up to when Pottermore opens.

Harry Potter eBook site hit by scammers and conmen

Fans of Harry Potter have been looking forward to the announcement of ‘Pottermore’, as well as being able to access the service. At present the service is in closed beta, with public access coming in October. The site, offering both eBooks and audiobook versions of the Harry Potter franchise, can currently only be accessed by those who complete the challenges posted upon it.

Now, some unscrupulous individuals online have chosen to exploit excited fans by offering ‘invitations’ to the service. Of course, Pottermore does not rely on an invitation system, though this has not stopped some fans from taking a chance with a so-called ‘invite’. Techradar reports that security expert Chris Boyd, of GFI Labs, believes the accounts are not genuine or will simply link users to malware.

Something else that is important to note is that some of the scammers and con-artists may be abusing Google’s search results in a process known as “search engine poisoning”. Also known as “black hat SEO”, these users are able to push their results higher and higher on the page via abuse of Google and other search engines. The websites themselves may contain malware, or will come as a phishing attempt, allowing users to “sign up” if they enter some of their personal information, such as their address or email address. This information can then be taken and harvested.

Despite all the negativity associated with these users, some people genuinely are selling legitimate accounts online. Unfortunately for those attempting to find a legitimate sale, the chances of finding an account are extremely slim. It is better to remain safe and wait for the October release in order to ensure safety – and to avoid any embarrassing wastes of money.
