Nigel Newton is sure J.K.Rowling won't stop writing

British editor Nigel Newton admits how ‘fortunate’ Bloomsbury feel as Harry Potter’s publishing house, adding that they had no idea they would “contribute their part to English editing with a series that would sell over five hundred million copies”. 

As far as possible additions to the series go, Newton says he cannot speculate but highlights the fact that J.K. Rowling is a ‘writer, a motivated writer who will continue writing books all her life”.
During his participation in Encuentro de Editores Europeos, celebrated at Casa del Lector in Madrid, Newton was interviewed by Fundación Germán Sánchez Ruipérez. In this interview he underlined that they had “no idea that this would happen” and that they feel very “fortunate”.
Nonetheless Newton admits he doesn’t feel Harry Potter is a “great classic” although he respects the perception of it as a literary phenomenon. He does however claim that the Harry Potter series has “acted like a magnet” when situating children’s literature.
