J.K. Rowling signs new deal for adult novels | Books

Acclaimed author JK Rowling has announced that she has signed a new book deal for novels written for adults.

Following the success of her record breaking and award winning book series Harry Potter, Rowland says, “Although I’ve enjoyed writing it every bit as much, my next book will be very different to the Harry Potter series…

“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.”

Details of the content of the book have yet to be announced but it’s been reported that the book’s title, publication date, and further details are being stored up for an announcement later this year.

Good news for fans of the Harry Potter writer.
