J.K Rowling announces she will publish a new book! - A £5million contract.

Rowling said "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 released by Little, Brown.

"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."

      I was wondering when she was going to put out a new book, it looks like she wants to go in a new direction with her writing.

      I look forward to reading her new book and don't think it is fair that anybody should be bagging her before reading it. She is so clever that she is every bit capable of creating another literary phenomena.

      I'm definitely looking forward to it - I hope it can live up to its predecessors' expectations, but even if not, I enjoy Rowling's writing style.

      I'm excited to see what kind of plot she comes up with and if she is going to create a whole new world like Harry Potter, or if it's just going to be a "regular" book.

      Yes and no. She created such an imaginative and entertaining world with the Harry Potter series I'm still hungry for more books set in it...even if it has nothing to do with Harry Potter per se. Of course I'll still be buying her new book anyway and I'm crossing my fingers she can capture lightning in a bottle again.

      I'm pretty excited to see what she is working on. I think she is incredibly talented and that the book will sell well. Atlhough, realistically, there is almost no way it will do as well as Harry Potter -- that type of success is really one in a million odds.

      Don't think anything will do as well as Harry Potter, buy she'll sell a lot just on her fan base.

      I'm curious what she will write for adults. I thougt Harry Potter had a lot of violence even though it was written for children.

      I'm definitely curious. HP is a hard act to follow, so it may not be as good.

      No. I'm worried that we'll discover she's a one-hint wonder.
