The Waterstone’s What’s your story? auction was held last night and the J.K. Rowling Harry Potter prequel story sold for close to $50,000. That’s obviously great news for the cause. The good news for us is that we can now read the Harry Potter prequel online.
J.K. Rowling’s story isn’t the only story on the site. There are also original stories over there by authors such as Neil Gaiman and Lauren Child. You can read those here.
Also, there’s still time to write a short story of your own and enter their contest. They will be choosing two of the best reader submitted stories to publish in a book along with the professional writers. The deadline for that is June 19th.
As I mentioned a few weeks back, I already entered the contest myself. I figured I’d post my entry here again, in case you missed it
