She will now focus on writing books for adults.
A lot of critics were on the fence regarding Rowling’s new reach for an adult audience. I have to admit I was on the fence too. Some writers can’t transition and/or write for both audiences.
The best-selling author has announced that she will be returning to writing, and the content this time will be geared toward adults. Rowling will be working with a new publisher — Little, Brown and Company — for her latest book. No details about the name, storyline and release date are known at this time.
“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,” Rowling said in a statement.
“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.”
