Life After Harry Potter?

So J.K. Rowling has just finished her first book after the phenomenal Harry Potter series, "The Tales of Beedle the Bard" - but only 7 copies were made.

One is to be auctioned for a children's chairty next month - "bound in brown morocco leather and mounted with silver and semiprecious stones, auctioned at Sotheby's with a starting price of $62,000." Kudos to J.K. for giving back.

The other 6 are supposed to be given as gifts. Geez, how do I get on that lady's Christmas list?

Yea, look forward to thousands of forgeries and fan fictions on this book in the very, very near future.

I'm curious as to why she's only making 7 copies though? Does it suck? Is she worried that only this one will make it to the top selling list because of her Harry Potter fame, only for her to disappear into obscurity after writing a few more, not so popular books? Or does she watch eBay, drinking her Earl Grey and laughing at the people scrambling and pilfering their children's college funds for but a glimpse of this elusive work of literature?

Which brings be to my next question - how many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?

The world may never know.

I have to admire J.K. Rowling for her somewhat eclectic strategies. Genius, J.K., absolutely genius.
