The Time has Come, Rowling said [breaking news musing]
On February 24, J.K. Rowling announced that she will be releasing a new book by the end of the year with publisher Little, Brown. Details on the work have been kept very quiet, down to the title and even the genre. All that is currently known is that this book will leave the world of Harry Potter and children's literature behind and capture an adult audience. Rowling wants to continue to break down boundaries: “The freedom to explore new territory is a gift that Harry’s success has brought me." This gives me great hope for her first adult novel, the book the world has been waiting on for nearly five years. I'm very excited to see what other gems come out of this brilliant mind and I can't imagine Rowling would allow her work to be released into the world if it were a disappointment. Let's see what else she can do!
