After the announcement by JK Rowling’s publishers yesterday that she will be releasing a new book for adults, many speculated whether the book would be out in 2012 or not.

All that debate is finished now, as she herself tweeted “As you may have heard, I have a new book out later this year. Very different to Harry, although I’ve enjoyed writing it every bit as much.”

Nothing more specific was revealed, but when the announcement is made we will bring it to you immediately.

    Wow! A tweet by JKR which doesn’t include ‘pen and paper or ‘this is the real me’. *shock*.
    But I’m happy to hear that the book will be coming out this year. Can’t wait to find out more!

    Later this year is exciting, I figured it would remain in the indeterminate future for quite a while.  Cannot wait to get hold of it, no matter what it’s about I imagine it’ll be good.

    ALL HAIL THE QUEEN. I assumed we wouldn’t be seeing this book for at least another year. This is better than I ever imagined.

    THIS. Is fabulous news.

    I’ve only just noticed the past-tense in all of the announcements – “enjoyed”. I was under the impression that the book was not complete, or this was just announcement that more books would be coming. So now that’s she’s finished it, it’ll only be the editing, finalizing, then printing left – so would it be safe to say that we can expect the book by summer?

      Editing, finalizing, and printing can take a while.  If it’s out by summer then I’m betting it’s already been back and forth between JKR and the publisher several times.

         I work in publishing – though our books ARE NOT nearly as intense as novels – and we’re already printing books for 7/1/12 deliveries.  I would assume that this book is in the ABSOLUTE final stages.

        Well, she has been in a habit of releasing her books in the Summer… I don’t see why she should stop now…

    I’m 99.9% sure she tweeted something new because Micah from Mugglecast unfollowed her

      Well we all know how much Jo pays attention to Micah. Remember waaay back when Jo would update her site whenever Micah mentioned it on the show?? Good times. :)

        Tha fact that I know what you’re talking about makes me happy for the good old days :D

  • Hermione Granger

    I think J.K. Rowling is the only person in the world who gets a whole news article written about each tweet :)

      That’s because she only sends out about two a year;)

    From the sound of the original announcement made yesterday, I had a feeling the book was already written. I’m so excited!

  • Ncnapper92

    I was worried the world would end before I got to read it, not anymore though.

  • Jason

    I love Jo’s profile picture. Her head is turned down to her writing, so it’s very much literally like “pen and paper are my priority at the moment so shoo.”

  • GoodFinder

    PLEASE let this book come out in the summer!!

  • http://twitter.com/lookalivesteph Stephanie

    Hopefully she tweets more now about new information on this book.

  • LilyLuna

    That’s fantastic news! I wasn’t expecting it to be out in 2012. I’m so looking forward to reading it. :-)

    I had assumed that it was already done for her to be with a new publisher and whatnot and all of the hype she’s just created…

  • Kavitha

    Amazing. Awesome tweet! :D

  • Agro

    I know that everyone is very excited but I cant help but feel a little apprehensive. After the whole Pottermore fiasco and the way they built up all this hype and withheld information to build interest and make things more mysterious (just like what they are doing now with this new book), I cant help but feel a little nervous that maybe this is going to flop like Pottermore did? I don’t know if I can trust Rowling to know what she is doing anymore.
