After her first adult novel ‘The Casual Vacancy’, JK Rowling has announced that her next book would likely be for young readers.
“The next thing I publish is likely to be a book for children,” she told over a million viewers in a web chat hosted by Scholastic (the American publisher of the Harry Potter series).
“The reason I’m not committing myself wholeheartedly is because, after fifteen years of being a writer for Harry Potter, where you would say something and someone would seize on it and say, ‘You are definitely doing that now.’
“And you kind of thought you weren’t allowed to change your mind. And it got a little intense, so I try not to commit myself with my plan. So I’m not 100 percent sure about doing it, but I think it will be a book slightly more for children.”
