Time For A New Product

 I don't know how many ex Harry Potter Fans there are in the world caused by the extremely disappointing Deathly Hallows, but it seems clear to me that it is time for a New Product to replace Harry Potter in the Witch and Wizard fantasy genre.  I am not an author.  I don't read fanfiction, and I'm not making this post to advertize or suggest any particular book or series.  I am just curious how many ex Harry Potter fans are still around reading fanfiction and just waiting to go back on the Harry Potter fansites and compare the idiotic Harry Potter plot in Deathly Hallows to a more realistic and reasonable witch and wizard plotline.

I will try Harry Dresden
I will buy a Harry Dresden book and read it on my airplane flight Thursday. I really think that his publisher is missing a big bet if he hasn't started a massive marketing campaign both on and offline going after all the disappointed Harry Potter fans 17yrs and above. If I like the book I might send his publisher a short suggestive email.

I'm not really interested in fantasy per se. What I'm interested in is a total lack of any intensive marketing campaign going after all the disappointed Harry Potter fans.

Re: I will try Harry Dresden
Thanks Winterfest. I was one of those idiots who had convienced myself that the Harry Potter series was something other then a stupid "Child's fantasy adventure series" where the adults acted in a stupid and illogical manner so the children could be the heros. I had convienced myself that JKR was going to write a suprise ending with a suprise twist that caused everything to make sense. Boy was I wrong.

I have decided that I will never again read a series that isn't already completed so I won't ever again be so disappointed in an author. It was the wait and disappointment that still bugs the hell out of me.

Maybe I will try Sandman on the airplane instead of Dresden. Chices, choices, choices.
