Here’s a great publicity idea for book clubs, libraries, book stores, author groups or any organization that relates in any way to books or reading.
Offer predictions on how you think “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” will end. It’s the last book in the record-breaking series by author J.K. Rowling.
The article asks whether Rowling could kill off Harry Potter “without devastating her audience, many of whom are young children.”
Hmmmmm. Sounds to me like child psychiatrists and even day care centers could piggyback onto this story with their own commentary.
Start pitching to your local newspapers and even TV stations. Don’t forget the bloggers who might be interested in this story. And how about writing a press release offering your predictions? Post it online for all the world to find.
