J.K. Rowling

Well, grown-ups, you no longer have to hide your copies of Harry Potter and the Whatever Whatever during your morning commute, because the author of the popular childrens book series is writing her first book for the olds.

That’s pretty much all the details we have for you today. Neither the book’s title, nor the date nor the topic nor the anything has yet been announced, though Little, Brown (which also publishes the Twilight novels) says that much of that will be announced 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.

Do you think you’ll get a copy of this when it comes out, or are you strictly a Potter person?
