J.K. Rowling to Have New Book Out at the End of the Year

According to The Guardian and Rowling's own Twitter account, there will be a new title by the Harry Potter author due out later this year. This one, however, is for adults and, according to Rowling "very different to Harry...."  The Guardian suggests that it is most likely to be a mystery/crime novel given the editor she's chosen for the book, David Shelley: "a man who counts Dennis Lehane, Val McDermid, Carl Hiaasen and Mark Billingham amongst his authors and who comes from a background steeped in crime and thriller writing."

So, keep your eyes and ears peeled.
