24 August 2016

London, England - The first three eBook shorts in the Pottermore Presents series are now available for pre-order from leading digital book retailers around the world. The eBooks will be published on 6 September, and are priced at 1.99 GBP, 2.99 EU and 2.99 USD each.

Pottermore Presents is a series of eBook shorts featuring themed collections of writing about J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world from the Pottermore archives that were curated by Pottermore’s editorial team. The majority of the writing is by J.K. Rowling, supplemented with editorial material from Pottermore’s team of experts. Much of the writing has been previously published on Pottermore, while some, from its private archive, has not been seen before.

“We’ve combed through our rich archives of writing by J.K. Rowling and carefully selected thematically-linked pieces to create this wonderful series of eBook shorts.” said Anna Rafferty, Pottermore’s Director of Product, Creative and Content. “While most of the eBook shorts represent work J.K. Rowling has published on Pottermore over the years, there are also a few never-seen-before pieces of writing from the archives offering readers new details into the characters of Minerva McGonagall and Horace Slughorn. We think readers will be charmed and delighted.”

The titles are:

Short Stories from Hogwarts: Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists

Short Stories from Hogwarts: Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies

Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide

Each eBook short is approximately 10,000 words long, and is available in eight languages: English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Dutch, Brazilian Portuguese, and Spanish. The eBooks are designed for readers seeking short content that can be read easily in about an hour on mobile phones, tablets, dedicated e-reading devices and computers.
