References, Linkage and Other Fun Stuff

We leaned heavily on the internet’s seemingly endless supply of Harry Potter reference material during the making of our book and wanted to share some of the sites that we feel were the most helpful, awesome, entertaining, brilliant and most worthy of receiving attention from your already overly-stimulated eyes and brains. NOT a definitive list – rather, consider it chips and dip. Munch on a few and then move on from there. Wow… We’re suddenly craving Kettle chips…. ENJOY!
Sincerely,
Kerin & Darby
