More Potter News

BBC News reports that JK Rowling is back at work writing already. 

“I’m sort of writing two things at the moment,” she said. “One is for children and the other is not for children.”


Rowling, 41, said she expected to drop one of her two
new books, which is what happened when she started writing Harry Potter
and the Philospher’s Stone in the 1990s.


“The weird thing is that this is exactly the way I started writing Harry,” she said.

“I was writing two things simultaneously for a year
before Harry took over. So one will oust the other in due course, and
I’ll know that’s my next thing.”

As a reader of children’s fiction, can I just put in my fervent wish that the one for children wins out!  C’mon Jo, think of the kids!

    Don’t be too disappointed if the one “for adults” wins. If you think about it, all those young people who grew up on Harry Potter from jump are now adults (early 20s) and were more the prime audience for the last couple Harry books than anyone else! I don’t think an adult book from JK, fantasy or not, would be disappointing. We both know what a terrific storyteller she is!
