JK Rowling: Harry & Hermoine Should've End Up Together!

J.K. Rowling has opened up about her smash hit “Harry Potter” book series and admits that Harry and Hermoine should have ended up together in the end!

“I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment,” Ms. Rowling shared in the new Wonderland mag issue. “That’s how it was conceived, really. For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione ended up with Ron.”

She added, “I know, I’m sorry. I can hear the rage and fury it might cause some fans, but if I’m absolutely honest, distance has given me perspective on that. It was a choice I made for very personal reasons, not for reasons of credibility. Am I breaking people’s hearts by saying this? I hope not.”

And it looks like Emma Watson agreed with her too: “I think there are fans out there who know that too and who wonder whether Ron would have really been able to make her happy.”

J.K. Rowling Writing Harry Potter Inspired Movie for Warner Bros.!

Great news Harry Potter fans: J.K. Rowling will be writing a movie that is based on the wizarding world she created in her seven part series!

“Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for 17 years, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world,” the 48-year-old author said in a statement. “The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt’s story will start in New York, 70 years before Harry’s gets underway.”

J.K. Rowling Talks Robert Galbraith Pseudonym in Statement

J.K. Rowling has released a statement regarding her recent book “The Cuckoo’s Calling” that was released under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.

“I hoped to keep this secret a little longer, because being Robert Galbraith has been such a liberating experience!” the 47-year-old author said. “It has been wonderful to publish without hype or expectation and pure pleasure to get feedback from publishers and readers under a different name.”

“The upside of being rumbled is that I can publicly thank my editor David Shelley, who has been a true partner in crime, all those people at Little, Brown who have been working so hard on ‘The Cuckoo’s Calling’ without realizing that I wrote it, and the writers and reviewers, both in the newspapers and online, who have been so generous to the novel,” she added. “And to those who have asked for a sequel, Robert fully intends to keep writing the series, although he will probably continue to turn down personal appearances.”

'The Casual Vacancy': J.K. Rowling's New Novel!

Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling has announced the title of her upcoming novel for adults, “The Casual Vacancy“, which will be released on September 27, 2012.

The 480-page book, which is described as “blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising”, is about a parish council election in a small English town called Pagford.

Here’s what the official description says: “When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock.

“Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war.

“Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils…Pagford is not what it first seems.

“And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations?”

J.K. Rowling Publishing Book for Adults

J.K. Rowling has landed a deal to publish a book for adults!

The Harry Potter creator will publish a book through Little, Brown at an unannounced future date.

“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,” Jo 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,” she added.
