Now that Harry Potter is all grown up, J.K. Rowling will write for people his age. The British author announced Thursday that she is coming out with a new novel, and it’ll be her first for adults. There are few details yet and no word on a title, subject matter, or publication date. But she will get a new publisher in Little, Brown. “My next book will be very different to the Harry Potter series,” Rowling said in a press release. “The freedom to explore new territory is a gift that Harry’s success has brought me.”
