J.K. Rowling teases with news of a post-Potter novel for grown-ups

J.K. Rowling plans for post Harry Potter BookBy Marc Bernardin, Source: Blastr.com

Even though writing for children has made her rich beyond the dreams of mortal man, J.K. Rowling has announced that her next novel will be “very different from the Harry Potter series.” And she’s already signed the deal for its release.

Details, as you can imagine, are scarce at this point: All that’s known is that an announcement about the title and time of release will come later in the year. To wit, Rowling released a statement that doesn’t clear up too much:

“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.”

Anne McCaffrey, the groundbreaking, award-winning fantasy author who won a dedicated following with her sci-fi/fantasy blending series Dragonriders of Pern, passed away Tuesday, November 22. She is survived by her three children.

She won acclaim from fans, becoming the first female writer to win a Hugo Award in 1968, and from her sci-fi and fantasy peers as well, becoming the first female writer to win a Nebula Award in 1969. Despite the praise, she initially struggled financially as a writer, living in Ireland in the early ’70s and fighting to make ends meet. Continue reading
