Pottermore BETA Testers only: will the site be ready for April launch?

Question by Emma: Pottermore BETA Testers only: will the site be ready for April launch?
As you know, the original October opening was postponed because of many technical difficulties that I am sure you noticed. Based on how the site has improved and how the site is now, do you think it is ready? Pottermore BETA testers only please.

Best answer:

Answer by Narcissa
Yes, I think it will be ready. Based on the post on the Insider, it seems that they have already migrated Pottermore to the new platform, so hopefully they will be able to accomodate the traffic. Overall the site seems to be running smoothly. There are glitches here and there, but the site is running much better than it was when I first started back in August. I am excited to hear that they plan to incorporate sounds and extra content in the coming weeks.

Honestly, after all the backlash they have had, I highly doubt they would have announced the date if they were not ready to go. I don’t see them postponing the opening again.

Harry Potter Fans Dub Leakynews.com People’s Voice; Site Becomes First Fan Site to Win a Webby

New York, NY (PRWEB) May 9, 2006 ?-

The Leaky Cauldron, http://www.leakynews.com, a top destination for Harry Potter fans worldwide, has become the first fan site to ever win a Webby Award. Today it was named the Best Celebrity/Fan Web site of 2006 in the annual People?s Voice voting. People?s Voice Winners will be honored at The Tenth Annual Webby Awards in New York City on June 12th.

In a category packed with official sites for known celebrities including Prince and the Grateful Dead, an unofficial, enthusiasm- and volunteer-driven Harry Potter fan site has become the people?s choice.

?The best part about this honor is that it comes from our readers, from our community. Leaky has always been about celebrating this magical book series with a faction of loving, enthusiastic and warm-spirited fans,? said Melissa Anelli, the site?s Webmistress. ?It has never been anyone?s ?day job? to create or maintain this site, and we?ve never had much more than a shoestring budget on which to do it. To receive this kind of recognition, among such heavyweights, is overwhelming.?

LeakyNews.com has been honored by J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter books, with her coveted Fan Site Award; she has also publicly called the site, ?my favorite fan site, and granted it a rare interview on the publication of the sixth book in the series, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The site?s current design was conceptualized and designed by Creative Director John Noe and put into functional practice by Head Programmer Nick Poulden. The site uses AJAX techniques (incorporating XHTML and CSS) to organize hundreds of categories of news and make its content attractive, easy to load, and functional. It runs on several servers, with a CentOS Linux/Lighttpd back end, and using PHP 5.1, MySQL 5, and Movable Type for data entry and retrieval. It has a mobile site and a text-only page in which to maximize accessibility for users.

Hailed as the ?online Oscars? by Time Magazine, The Webby Awards are determined by the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences, a global organization with a membership that includes musician David Bowie, Virgin Group founder Richard Branson, The Body Shop president Anita Roddick, ?Simpsons? creator Matt Groening, Real Networks CEO Rob Glaser, and fashion designer Max Azria.

?The Webby Awards honors the outstanding web sites that are setting the standards for the internet,? said Tiffany Shlain, founder and ambassador of The Webby Awards. ?LeakyNews.com?s Webby Award nomination is a testament to the skill, ingenuity, and vision of its creators.?

The Tenth Annual Webby Awards received a record number of entries from over 40 countries and all 50 states.

An Online Site Dedicated to Market and Sell Self-Published Books

Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) July 22, 2011

Selfpublishedbookstore.com was founded in March, 2011.

http://selfpublishedbookstore.com, is a website that helps self-published authors market and sell their books. Many self-published authors are frustrated that they cannot sell their books. This site gives them a voice and an opportunity. We are dedicated to market and sell self-published books.

Before John Grisham became a famous novelist whose works have been read by millions, he struggled to get publishers interested in a book called “A Time to Kill.? He was rejected by 26 publishers and so he self-published. J.K. Rowling?s first Harry Potter book was rejected by nine publishers. Dr. Suess?s first book was rejected by 27 publishers. John Henry Toole committed suicide after many rejections, but his mother persevered and ?A Confederacy of Dunces? was published and won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Publishers make mistakes. Several best-sellers have started out on the self-publishing route, including “The Shack,” “What Color is Your Parachute?” and the initial “Chicken Soup for the Soul.”

One author is writing a series called “VerseryRhymes” that translates the New Testament verse by verse into rhyme. He has completed Matthew, Mark, John, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, James and Revelation.

Another author from Germany has written a three-part science fiction series.

One of our authors has already sold 51,000 copies of her self-published book “All We Like Sheep”.

From personal experience, we saw a need for a site to help self-published authors find a market for their books. Many self-publishing book companies will teach you the nuts and bolts of self-publishing, and print and sell your books through their website for a hefty percentage. What they won’t do is market your books or feature your books unless you pay a high fee. This site is a place to bring all self-published authors together to sell their books. We will feature each book at various times throughout the year. We will also market the books.

There are over 100 books and ebooks already on Selfpublishedbookstore.com. The books are being marketed in many ways on the web, through the social media and email. We also market with signs, cards, postcards, at book fairs and trade shows. Selfpublishedbookstore.com represents many wonderful authors. There are books in many genres.

Selfpublishedbookstore aims to be a community where author and customer can meet. Authors can list up to 10 different books for $ 20 per year (not $ 20.00 per book) and pay Selfpublishedbookstore.com 15 percent of sales. Selfpublishedbookstore.com is not a publishing company, but sells and markets such books for other authors.

Authors can sell their books on our site for whatever price they choose. While some self-published authors are discovered by large publishing companies, many of them are proud to be on their own and want to remain that way. ?The Shack? is still self-published.

Self-published authors write good books that they believe in. They just need an avenue to get them to customers. That is where selfpublishedbookstore.com comes in.

We have been reaching out to self-published authors encouraging them to consider selling their books on the site. We have been promoting selfpublishedbookstore.com on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, social networking sites, the same sites will be used to market books for clients.

Since Selfpublishedbookstore.com started in March, it has had over, 14,000 visits and 183,000 hits from computer users in 22 countries.

HOUSTON (PRWEB) July 9, 2007

Bollywoods Ram Questions Lord Ram!

Even if a pin drops in Bollywood, the news spreads like wild fire. And when someone as controversial as Ram Gopal Varma makes a statement on his social networking site available for public display then it is bound to make headlines. On the day of Ram Navami, the filmmaker angered many of his followers by candidly questioning Lord Rams deeds. According to him, the Lord did nothing but just fought a personal war with Raavan, to free his wife Seeta. And such remarks were not appreciated by many who believed that Varma knows how to gain limelight by cheap publicity stunts. With Box Office duds like Rann, Agyat, Phoonk and many more, Ram Gopal Varma has made Bollywood followers wonder if he has lost it completely. He seems to have completely forgotten the basics of filmmaking.

People have reacted very strongly to his statements. A person said, I suggest Mr.Varma to read Ramayana wrote by Valmiki and other translations. There is no Hinduism without Ramayana. Rama is an incarnation of Dharma. How the human relations are to be performed is rightly depicted in Ramayana. While another person said, Ram Gopal has lost it…..! Sorry! He never had it! But then what can one expect from a nation that has proved itself to be pseudo-secular. Everything that you speak against Sanatan (Hinduism) will get you noticed, and so every tom, dick and harry has taken to earning cheap publicity. After all, Ram Gopal too has given nothing but super flops in the last few years, so to remain in the news he will stoop to doing anything! Forgive the poor man……God has forsaken him long back, so he has to resort to such tactics! It’s a question of his survival after all!.

The filmmaker has marvelled at slinging mud at others and making tacky statements to grab ears. The very fact that he has no more blockbusters to his credit post Company and Sarkar Raj, Varma is certainly making all possible attempts to draw attention of people. RGV recently produced multilingual film Rakhtacharita with Vivek Oberoi and Ajit playing lead roles. But the films proved to be Box Office disasters. However, a filmmaker like him, who has made films on hard hitting social and political issues scandalised many by making comments on Lord Ram. Ironically, her shares his name with the Almighty himself! And as they say any publicity is good publicity, Varma is certainly making headlines. But by doing so is certainly losing out on many of his followers.
