Harry Potter author JK Rowling has updated the news section on her site: "I don't know about you, but I got sick and tired of seeing that old Edinburgh Book Festival headline on my desktop and thought I'd change it, however dull the fresh story."
So: I have nothing noteworthy to report, because I have been spending nearly all my time sitting in front of my computer writing, re-writing and taking the occasional break to bang my head off the desk in frustration or else rub my hands together in fiendish glee (I think the latter has happened once). Meanwhile, the distance between the keyboard and yours truly increases day by day as my third child races Harry's next adventure into the world. I will soon need extendable fingers to type.
Thanks to JKRfans.com for the tip.
Rowling has also updated her rumors section:
Harry stands trial again in HP&THBP:
This theory has been put forward to explain why Harry does not spend as long in Privet Drive during this book as previous ones, but I am happy to say that he leaves the Dursleys early for a much pleasanter reason than a court case.
Thanks to The Leaky Cauldron for that.
There is new quiz on the site:
How many chapters will Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince? (Subject to editorial changes, or course)
What is the significance of Neville bring the other boy to whom the prophecy might have referred?
Will Ron ever manage to become more than just good friends with a girl?
