J.K. Rowling Announces New Harry Potter Book!

Harry Potter Trio New Book

Pottermania is about to hit a NEW level!

Author of the insanely successful Harry Potter books, J.K. Rowling, recently took to her personal website, breaking the news to fans that she’s working on ANOTHER Harry Potter-related book!

But before you get TOO excited — the new project is NOT book eight, but instead, a Harry Potter Encyclopedia!

Rowling spilled:

"For a long time I have been promising an encyclopedia of Harry’s world, and I have started work on this now – some of it forms the new content in Pottermore. It is likely to be a time-consuming job, but when finished I shall donate all royalties to charity."

Wow! Good for her! We're always down for a good cause!

No word on when the book might be completed or really any details about it yet, but as far as another HP literary journey goes?

Rowling said:

"I have always refused to say ‘never’ to this question, because I think it would be foolish to rule out something I might want to do in a few years’ time."

Potter fans must be EXPLODING with all the Harry excitement…especially with Pottermore, the online Harry Potter funhouse, going public just this past Saturday!

Can't say J.K. doesn't treat her loyal followers well!

    You are so far behind. Potterheads already knew this…it's nothing new…

    Yeah this is not new information. I remember her talking about this a long time ago because she mentioned that she would describe how a horcrux was made and its supposed to be super brutal.

    I'm just so glad it's finally official and she's definitely working on it now. It's been talked about so much in the past, but always as some vague thing. Now that it's going to be real, I'm just relieved (and kind of even more excited for her new non-Potter book now that I know more of what I love it coming).
    Now if only Pottermore would open up past the first book, life would be fantastic in my fandom.

    THE PITS
    Sinful pleasure, a painful deceit.
    Just the frantic illusion of all we see.
    Morning dew, sweeping the soles of our hearts.
    Tragic storms,left to take their part.
    A little shame, a carcass and dust.
    Little lambs, having more than enough.
    The odd lines, the random circle.
    The lost soul, waiting for a miracle.
    Then the masses, waiting for liberty.
    Wallowing in the pits of self-pity. To read more, go to wattpad(my username) .my wattpad name is skywalker31. Thanks.

    Perez, do you even read the news you post? If you were actually as big a Jo fan as you claim to be, you would know how old this news is. Notice how she says, "FOR A LONG TIME I HAVE BEEN PROMISING…"

    You people are annoying. Obviously she's been talking about it for a long time, but that doesn't mean it was a sure thing. This article provides the information proving that a Harry Potter Encyclopedia is, for sure, going to be made. If you were a true 'potterhead', you would realize the difference between facts and myths. Dumbasses.

    you people have no idea what you're talking about. she's been talking about the encyclopedia for years. the only new info is that she updated he site to say she's working on it

    Wow Perez Hilton. This is REALLY OLD NEWS for Potterheads. We've known about this for years. Try to stay on top of things!

    As most others have said, this is not news. It was 5 years ago that she "broke the news" she'd be doing it and she's been working on it for months, probably years. Just because she changed her site and included a line about working on it on there, doesn't make it news. Great that everyone's excited about it but keep up Perez, you're half a decade out of the loop!
