Wimpy Kid pips Potter

JK Rowling's Harry Potter books is one of the most successful series of all time. But a poll for the best children's book of the decade saw American author Jeff Kinney's creation, Wimpy Kid Greg Heffley, edge out Rowling's boy wizard.

<b>E-xperiment </b><br><br>Jackie Collins has sold more than 400 million copies of her books worldwide. Following young authors such as Amanda Hocking she has now decided to self-publish a rewritten version of her novel, The Bitch, in the US. She will self-publish an ebook of The Bitch in March, which will be priced at $2. 99 or even less. A sequel to The Stud, The Bitch continues the story of Fontaine Khaled. "It's a total experiment. It might sell two copies or it might sell 200, 000. Who knows?" Collins told a website. Collins' move is a calculated one since new data suggests that over a quarter of fiction ebooks sold in the UK are by self-published authors.
