In the author's notes to the book, Rowell describes Carry On & Simon:
If you've read my book Fangirl, you know that Simon Snow began as a fictional character in that novel.
A fictional-fictional character. Kind of a amalgam and descendant of a hundred other fictional Chosen Ones.
The most obvious comparison is that with Harry Potter with whom Simon shares many character traits and backstory elements (non-magician child being taken to a magical school at age 11 by a mentor/father-figure who is headmaster of the school, rough childhood, doesn't know his parents, clever female best friend, nemesis who represents the old magical families, personal link to the verse's arch-villain etc.)
