Harry Potter author JK Rowling is obviously financially stable, and if she doesn’t want to, she never has to write another book as long as she lives. Of course the fans would be dying for her to continue in the Potterverse, but she has repeatedly made it clear that wasn’t going to happen.
But that doesn’t mean she isn’t going to write another book. In fact, she actually IS returning to writing and thanks to publisher Little, Brown (same publisher that brought you Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight novels) Rowling is expected to write her first Non-Potter book. This time it will be for grown-ups!
That’s right. Despite the rabid fanbase just begging for more Potter, Rowling will be writing a new book that will be targeted at adult readers. This makes sense for Rowling as that very same rabid fanbase will have aged a minimum of 14 years since the Harry Potter novels were first published. It is fair to say that most of them are adults now.
Also, if you read the books, you can see that her writing style does mature alongside the characters, just as the storyline matured to a much darker and more serious tone.
No word as to the context of the new book, though Rowling assures us it will be very different from her Harry Potter works. Of course that vague indication not only confirms its not a Harry Potter related product, but also spawns wild speculation as to what it might be.
