Harry Potter fanfic published!
It looks like the Harry Potter universe has plenty of room for popular fanfic to be formally published and released to fans--how thoroughly cool! According to the BBC online, La Septima M is "the first of three books that 23-year-old Chilean journalism student Francisca Solar was contracted to write by publishers Random House, following the online success of her unofficial sixth Harry Potter story, Harry Potter and the Decline of the High Elves".
According to Francisca, "All the things I know about literature, about writing, I learned in the fan fiction world... I owe it everything." For a YouTube acccount in Francisca's own words of her move from writing fanfic online to having it published by Random House, go here.
