Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling today announced that she is working on her first novel since 'Potter', a story for adults.

J.K. Rowling working on a novel for adultsAlthough 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.

The title and release date are yet to be announced, but it's safe to say exciting times lie ahead!

Update: According to a tweet from Jo Rowling, the novel will be released later this year and will be, "very different to Harry". She added, "I’ve enjoyed writing it every bit as much".
