NEW YORK (AP) - J.K. Rowling is not amused by a publisher’s promise that some of its books will be brought to her attention.

PublishAmerica, in a message on its website, is telling authors that a “delegation” will soon meet with her in Edinburgh and tell the “Harry Potter” author about some of their books. Writers are asked to submit 50-100 word notes that the delegation will present to Rowling. The price: $49.

Rowling spokesman Mark Hutchinson said Tuesday that the claim was “completely false” and promised “appropriate action.” PublishAmerica, based in Frederick, Md., has long been cited by industry watchdogs for allegedly deceiving authors.
