Great news from the author of the Harry Potter series! J.K. Rowling has a new book, this time for adults. Yes, I agree, the Harry Potter books have millions of adult fans, and I am among them. But books featuring child or teen protagonists are generally considered children’s literature. The New York Times printed Rowling’s statement:
“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.”
Little, Brown will publish the book, but the title, topic, and publication date have not been released. Sales are guaranteed to break records and I look forward to getting my copy on the very first day.
