The Casual Vacancy now on HBO
Rowling's first adult novel "The Casual Vacancy" didn't have a lot of success but sold millions of copies and now is a BBC 3 part mini series. It aired on BBC recently and on HBO on April 29th. HBO subscribers can watch it on the HBO GO service for free but for those who don't have HBO in the US can watch it on HBO Now. The service is free for the first month after which it be $14.99 per month. The catch is that you need an iOS device or Apple TV to subscribe to it, after which you can watch it on any web browser. If didn't read it you can probably watch it on HBO. Don't watch with with kids though as there is some adult content that wouldn't be suitable for kids. Happy watching!!

GoodReads nominates 'The Casual Vacancy' by J.K. Rowling for Best Fiction Book of 2012 has nominated J.K. Rowlin'g first adult novel The Casual Vacancy for the Best Fiction book of 2012.

The Casual Vacancy received mixed reviews from critics and fans alike, but for fans of Harry Potter, the book was a far cry the Hogwarts Saga setting yet still possessed that flavor and touch of brilliant storytelling from the accomplished author. When Barry Fairbrother dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock.

Seemingly an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, what lies behind the pretty facade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils...Pagford is not what if first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelation?

Show your love for J.K. Rowling by heading on over to the GoodReads website and cast your vote now for The Casual Vacancy.

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.

Deathly Hallows part 2 makes history
Well, a very non-shocking news. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 has created Hollywood history by becoming the movie to gross the maximum on the opening day.

Deathly Hallows Part 2 grossed an estimated $92.1 million Friday, Warner Bros. said.

The take was nearly as big as the year's biggest three-day weekend to date, and $20 million bigger than the opening-day record held by the Twilight franchise's New Moon.

It was also Hollywood's largest-ever single-day gross, blowing away, among others, New Moon, Eclipse and The Dark Knight.

Speaking of Batman…

The box-office tracking firm Exhibitor Relations today guestimated the final Harry Potter will smash The Dark Knight's three-year-old opening-weekend record with a $175 million Friday-Sunday domestic haul.

So, to recap: Opening-day record; single-day record; opening-weekend record (probably).

(From the official Press Release)
"For this groundbreaking collaborative project, J.K. Rowling has written extensive new material about the characters, places and objects in the much-loved stories, which will inform, inspire and entertain readers as they journey through the storylines of the books. Pottermore will later incorporate an online shop where people can purchase exclusively the long-awaited Harry Potter eBooks, in partnership with J.K. Rowling’s publishers worldwide, and is ultimately intended to become an online reading experience, extending the relevance of Harry Potter to new generations of readers, while still appealing to existing fans. As the Pottermore Shop develops, it is intended that it should include further products designed specifically for Harry Potter fans, offering a potential outlet for Sony products and services related to Pottermore. In keeping with Harry Potter’s international appeal, the site will launch in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish, with more languages to follow.
In the new website, the storyline will be brought to life with sumptuous newly-commissioned illustrations and interactive ‘Moments’ through which you can navigate, starting with the first book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s (Sorcerer’s) Stone. On entering, you choose a magic username and begin your experience. As you move through the chapters, you can read and share exclusive writing from J.K. Rowling, and, just as Harry joins Hogwarts, so can you. You visit Diagon Alley, get sorted into a house, cast spells and mix potions to help your house compete for the House Cup.
At a press conference at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, Rowling revealed some key features of the website. In an announcement which will thrill fans, she described how she has
brought to life both the Sorting Hat and Ollivanders experiences from her books for the first time on Pottermore, by revealing the questions asked by the Sorting Hat - which places newcomers into their Hogwarts houses according to their characteristics - and the magic behind the Wand Chooser – which finds the right wand for each user from over 33,000 possible combinations. She also revealed glimpses of the new information she has provided on some of the best-loved characters.
J.K. Rowling’s announcement on YouTube and today revealed that Pottermore (along with the Pottermore Shop) will be open to all users in October 2011. From today, 23rd June, fans can submit their email addresses on in order to be contacted by the site following the opening of registration on 31st July, Harry’s birthday. Also on that date, an online challenge will be launched, whereby the first million people to complete their registration will gain early entry into the website, and help put final touches to the experience.
