J.K. Rowling's New Book

J.K. Rowling will be back with a new book-this time for adults. The title, release date, and details were not released and should be out later this year. The big change is that now Rowling will be published by Little Brown in the U.S.

Rowling said "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," Rowling said in a statement released by Little, Brown. "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."

Will you read the new book? I'm very excited and can't wait to see what's in store!!

  7. Depends on how 'adult' she's making it. Hopefully she doesn't go overboard on making it not for teens.
