#RowlingReturns! J.K. Rowling Announces New Novel Will Be For Adults

BlogHer Original Post

Yes, the day has finally come. J.K. Rowling has announced that she's publishing a new novel. The Blair Partnership website updated earlier today with the news. Details, including the title, will not be released until later in the year but they have confirmed that the novel will be targeted at adults.

There has been much speculation about what Rowling will publish next. Those hoping that she may continue on in the Harry Potter world had their hopes raised after her 2010 interview with Oprah Winfrey when she said that she thought she was done, but "you never know." Some people speculated that she might publish her own Harry Potter encyclopedia but that idea was rather smashed when she announced the Pottermore website. While Pottermore is still facing some development issues, and currently not open to new users, it's been designed to be the depository of her Harry Potter knowledge.

What will be next? We're still not sure but a handwritten note from Rowling on the Blair Partnership website reads, "While I have loved writing it just as much, my next book will be very different from the Harry Potter series."

Are you excited about the J.K. Rowling news? Will you buy her new book?
