Telegraph | Opinion | Harry Potter and the market forces

Sarah Sands, writng in the Telgraph:

The world of publishing has become one of the most free and competitive of markets. The reward for risk is vast. I intend to bore my grandchildren with the story of a pleasant publicity woman from Bloomsbury who begged me to write something about a charming, but hopelessly uncommercial, children's book called Harry Potter and how I grudgingly obliged. The convention at that time was that there was no money in children's books. Now the adult market struggles to keep pace.

Sands' adult novel, Hothouse, is published by Macmillan
