J. K. Rowling announces new novel for adults

24th February 2012

J. K. Rowling has announced she is to publish her first full-length novel since completing the Harry Potter books, with the new title aimed at adults.

Having sold over 400 million books worldwide, many had doubted whether Rowling would ever write another novel, but she has confirmed the new title will be a complete departure from the boy wizard's adventures.

The author has revealed that she has signed an agreement to distribute her new book through the publisher Little, Brown, describing it as a 'second publishing home'.

'Although I've enjoyed writing it every bit as much, my next book will be very different to the Harry Potter series,' Rowling explained.

'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.'

So far no details about the plot, genre or release date have been announced, though Rowling did claim she is entering a 'new phase' of her writing life, so readers can possibly expect more than one book from the author.
