Addendum to Deathly Hallows? Try Deathly Overkill…

With the writing and publishing process, I often read that once a manuscript is in the hands of the publisher, don’t consider it yours anymore. They will repeatedly tell you to change this and change that. There will come a point when your precious creation would have transformed so much that it no longer looks like the original.
So I guess having a movie director butchering your work would be nothing new to an author.
Just a thought…
