JK Rowling announces new book for adults
J.K. Rowling's agency, the Blair Partnership, announced this morning that the Harry Potter author will be releasing a new novel for adults
The only other info on the page, besides a graphic, is a note from the author indicating that "While I have loved writing it just as much, my next book will be very different from the Harry Potter series."
A press release further notes:
"Although I’ve enjoyed writing it every bit as much, my next book will be very different to the Harry Potter series, which has been published so brilliantly by Bloomsbury and my other publishers around the world. The freedom to explore new territory is a gift that Harry’s success has brought me, and with that new territory it seemed a logical progression to have a new publisher. I am delighted to have a second publishing home in Little, Brown, and a publishing team that will be a great partner in this new phase of my writing life"
Details will be announced "later in the year." The as-yet unnamed book has been bought by Little, Brown and Company
in the UK and US.
Also the her official website
has updated itself with the following message :
"Although I've enjoyed writing it just as much, my next novel will be very different from the Harry Potter series."
The site is expected to be updated this spring and people can sign up for further announcements regarding this book.
