Apparently she's worth 50 million quid!!! Does she need any more money? I know what I'd do!

It's not going to dry up though really is it? Each new generation will be buying her books once they come of age not to mention film royalties.

taht's a cash cow that'll be lactating forever

I somehow don't think she will be worrying too much about where her next pound is coming from. Plus these books will keep selling in the future, and I assume she gets something from the films as well.

apparently she has plans to write more books, just not about HP.

pointydog Fri 20-Jul-07 21:00:19

oh yes she will carry on writing
they will bomb

recken she has zero cash worries

LOL, her cow isnt anywhere near being dehydrated

SSSandy2 Fri 20-Jul-07 21:08:23

well personally I hope she's going to found a charity aimed at relocating dissatisfied expat wives to their dream location

There will always be an income from Harry Potter.

I reckon she'll try writing a grown-ups' book. And won't be very good at it. Or maybe there'll be a Harry Potter prequel...

50 million....nope, she has an estimated weath of £280 million. She is richer than the queen. At that is before her income from the last book and last two films is taken into account!

and bloody good luck to her, she did it all on her own

she said she wants to write mystery books for adults.
I think she'll be good at it because HP is basically mystery as well as fantasy.
She'll get tonnes of criticism though whatever she writes
She already oes tonnes of charity work and working with literature students etc iirc

she gives a lot to fund MS reserch and Gingerbread (I think, a charity supporting single parents, at any rate)

It's her money to do with how she likes. She wrote the book, she earned the money.

If she choses to support charities, good on her. But up to her how and what she does.

just read she's worth £145 million - don't think she'll starve.

I did toy momentarily with the idea of wirting her a begging letter

i've read she's worth around £445-£500 million...
