Just saw this on you tube. If true, it looks like it will be a shot in the arm for paper books. Surprised to see at the bottom of the screen that Warner bros owns the trade marks for the Harry Potter names.

Yeah, it looks very secretive, no idea if it's a new book or what. And if it is, it probably isn't coming out in a few days. Just announced in a few days. If she had a new book coming out in a few days we all would have heard about it before now.

Could very well be a project that takes place in the Potter universe we saw in the final pages of Book 7 ?

OR-- it may be an extra treat she thought up for fans as a companion to the upcoming final film?

Yeah, I also think she said that she may make use of the same universe. Although whatever it is will surely be a huge hit, it'll still be just one book or one book at a time. If anything it may breathe some life back into Young-Adult Fantasy that isn't Paranormal!

Well, I guess it's not a book after all.
Whatever it is, it is a lesson in advance marketing.

Fingers crossed! ;)

Also, if it is an MMO or something like that, I will be sorely tempted. Love me some Harry Potter.

I must admit that when I saw this on Twitter this morning I was incredibly excited. I saw some speculation that it would be a theme park. Maybe an entire HP theme park in the UK? One more reason for me to take a trip over the pond.

It only says 6 days&c before she announces something. Is she going to renege on her vow never to publish an e book?

Must make her feel important? Can I do one of those for my next short story? Pretty please.

Have you visited the HP theme park in Florida?

I heard it was going to be an interactive site for fans with forums and such. Guess we won't know until she formally announces it, which I guess is June 23rd.  pottermore.com is the site name.
