HARRY POTTER AUTHOR MOVES ON: The New Book Is Nothing Like Potter Series


Harry Potter author, JK Rowling warned fans that her next book would be nothing like Harry Potter and she wasn’t kidding. She emphasized that “although I’ve enjoyed writing it every bit as much, my next book will be very different to the Harry Potter series“. And now that details of her new book are trickling out, its clear that she needed to prepare her fan base. The new Book, is called “THE CASUAL VACANCY” and its set in the very mogul-surroundings of a small town in the UK. Instead of magic, The Casual Vacancy is centered around the equally mirky world of politics.The new book is described as a black comedy, set in a picturesque township. In the cobble stoned town of Pagford, a dark storyline is put into motion when a youthful  Parish Councilor (the equivalent of a city commissioner), Barry Fairweather, unexpectedly dies. The death sets off a local, political war the publisher describes as the “Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils”. It is the furthest storyline possible, from the Harry Potter series. It is also sure to be a best seller. JK Rowling will break new ground by charging a whopping $20 for the ebook version of her new book. In an ebook market poised to see a decline in prices, Rowling is making an audacious move, positioning her book as a premium purchase. However, if there is any author in the world that can command such an inflated price, it is certainly JK Rowling!
