J.K. Rowling, the author of the popular childrens book series Harry Potter is writing her first book for the adults. The book’s title, publishing date and subject has not been announced. The publisher Little, Brown says that much of that will be shared later this year.
In today’s press release, Rowling said the following:
“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.”
