J.K. Rowling Busy On Non-Harry Potter Books Since Deathly Hallows
The end might be near for a certain young wizard as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 closes out the magical series, but Guardian UK reveals that one ending leads to other beginnings.
Author J.K. Rowling spoke with MTV News at the premiere of final film in the Potter franchise, letting her fans know that there will be more books coming out with her name on the cover. “I’m writing,” Rowling says, “and I’ve done quite a lot since finishing Harry Potter.”
If Rowling has been hard at work creating more worlds to entertain readers, why no big news of upcoming releases? While the commercial thing to do would be to strike while the iron is hot, Rowling reveals that she didn’t want to take the spotlight off Harry. “I think I always felt I didn’t want to publish again until the last film was out because Potter has been such a huge thing in my life. I’ve been writing hard ever since I finished writing Hallows, so I’ve got a lot of stuff and I suppose it’s a question of deciding which one comes out first. But I will publish again. In a sense it’s a beginning for me as well as an end.”
The author has mentioned other works in the past, with talk of a political fairytale in 2009 and a book aimed at adults that she hinted at in 2007. She’s even spoken of a Harry Potter encyclopedia, although, with the recent unveiling of Pottermore, there’s a good chance that this particular title might one day show up in electronic form rather than book form. There’s also a good chance her former agent is squirming just a little bit since Rowling pulled up stakes and signed on with someone else.
Rowling even provided a glimmer of hope for Potter fans when she revealed that she might have changed her mind about the bookish fate of Harry. After shocking muggles all over the world when she said she had no plans to write another Potter book, she now appears to be singing a different tune, saying, “Never say never. It is my baby and if I want to bring it out to play again I will.You know what? Maybe I’ll just write another one.”
Daniel Radcliffe might not be thrilled with that news, but I’m sure Potter fans everywhere are breathing a sigh of relief with that revelation. Hope springs eternal.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 finally arrives in theaters this Friday.
