A trio of E-books were released from Pottermore today. They feature some new content from the Pottermore vault & some previously published works from Jo.

From Pottermore.com:

Pottermore Presents is a collection of J.K. Rowling’s writing from the Pottermore archives: short reads originally featured on pottermore.com. These eBooks, with writing curated by Pottermore, will take you beyond the Harry Potter stories as J.K. Rowling reveals her inspiration, intricate details of characters’ lives and surprises from the wizarding world.

    Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide

Hogwarts An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide takes you on a journey to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You’ll venture into the Hogwarts grounds, become better acquainted with its more permanent residents, learn more about lessons and discover secrets of the castle . . . all at the turn of a page.

    Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies

These stories of heroism, hardship and dangerous hobbies profile two of the Harry Potter stories’ most courageous and iconic characters: Minerva McGonagall and Remus Lupin. J.K. Rowling also gives us a peek behind the closed curtains of Sybill Trelawney’s life, and you’ll encounter the reckless, magical-beast-loving Silvanus Kettleburn along the way.

    Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists

These stories of power, politics and pesky poltergeists give you a glimpse into the darker side of the wizarding world, revealing the ruthless roots of Professor Umbridge, the lowdown on the Ministers for Magic and the history of the wizarding prison Azkaban. You will also delve deeper into Horace Slughorn’s early years as Potions master at Hogwarts – and his acquaintance with one Tom Marvolo Riddle.

Each book retails for $2.99 & are available from Pottermore, iBook, Amazon, + other E-book retailers.



For any fan willing to spend some money to make their dreams come true & walk the red carpet of a J.K. Rowling movie, this is for you! This once in a lifetime opportunity comes at a steep price of $3990 but will be worth every penny when you get to spend the night with the stars of Fantastic Beasts & even possibly Jo!

“Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them” Premiere and After Party So you say you’ve been heartbroken ever since the Harry Potter series of films finally ended? You say you’ve watched every film 50 times, and you still want more? Have your friends all grown tired of letting you win whenever you get together for a brisk round of quidditch? Well, take heart. Your wishes are about to be answered in November, when J. K. Rowling’s next series of books that grew up to be films hits the big screen, starting with the November release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Beasts is a prequel/spin-off of the Harry Potter film series and is the first installment of a trilogy. If my math is right, when this set of three is finished, that will be a total of 10 Harry Potter films. However, Rowling can certainly squeeze out a few more spinoffs if she really tries. After all, when it comes to Harry Potter, it’s her world–and when it comes to making money, she is well-loved throughout Hollywood. This film is about one of Harry’s mentors, Newt Scamander, who is part of a secret community of witches and wizards in New York. Harry read Scamander’s book in school some 70 years after it was written. The movie’s premise is as follows. Scamander goes to the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA), to meet with an important official. He brings along a magic briefcase that houses a number of dangerous creatures and their habitats. When the creatures escape from the briefcase, the American wizarding authorities come looking for Newt, which threatens to further strain the state of magical and non-magical relations. NYC is already in unsafe for wizards, thanks to the fanatical New Salem Philanthropic Society, an extremist organization dedicated to the extinction of wizard-kind. Newt fights to right the mistake, as well as the horrors of the resultant increase in violence, fear, and tension felt between magical and non-magical peoples (muggles). So, now that you know that the film is going to be released in mid- to late-November, 2016, aren’t you just bursting at your seams to go see it? Well, guess what? We have tickets to the world premiere right here is beautiful Los Angeles, which is much nicer than New York, especially if you’re a wizard or a witch. Tickets to the premiere come with passes to the after party, where you can meet some of the people who brought the film to life. You never know who’s going to show up for such a prestigious red-carpet event. J.K. Rowling might even be there. But you can make sure that you show up for it by buying your tickets now. Given how popular the Harry Potter series is, was and will always be, it’s pretty certain Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will also be the start of another rousing (and profitable) new franchise for Rowling, who must be getting tired of being so successful by now. Date/Location: Mid- Nov., 2016, Los Angeles(Date and Location TBD) Trailer: trailers.apple.com/trailers/wb/fantasticbeastsandwheretofindthem/. –TheVipConcierge.com

DressLikeJKR

For the ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ premiere on July 30th, J.K. Rowling wore a stunning navy, fitted dress by Roland Mouret paired with Sophia Webster winged heels. It was a fun, sassy combo in which Jo’s personality shined through as well as the plot line of Cursed Child (Jo’s accessories were little hints to the play’s script; i.e. the serpent ring for Slytherin)!

BUT the dress alone is $2,295! No need to worry! We’ve found Jo’s look for a grand total of $150.00! You can purchase a look-a-like dress from Amazon for only $120 & the find of a century, winged heels that could easily pass for a pair of Sophia Webster’s also from Amazon!
