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

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.”

New territory, eh? I hope she sticks with genre fiction, as she’s a master world-builder … but part of me hopes it’s a book about a stupid, stupid man who leaves his wife, who then goes on to be beloved the world over. And very, very rich.
