Potter's J.K. Rowling To Announce New Project

Author J.K. Rowling, Of Harry Potter fame, has launched a new website. There's not much there except illustrations of two owls and a link to a clock — counting down to six days from now, when the author plans to announce her mysterious new project. Rowling's publicists are only saying it is not a new book.

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

The final movie in the Harry Potter series arrives in theaters next month. But that may not be the end. Yesterday, author J.K. Rowling launched a new website: Pottermore.com. There's not much there except illustrations of a couple of owls and a link to a clock, counting down to six days from now, when the author plans to announce her mysterious new project. Rowling's publicists are only saying it is not a new book.

It's MORNING EDITION.
