The official siteopens in new window for JK Rowling has been completely revamped.

Gone is the list of her publishers worldwide. The site is now filled with information that will interest all fans of Harry Potter including news on book 6.

Check out how her venture into MuggleNet's chat room went and if you're especially smart you may be able to navigate her site to find out some clues about book 6.

Her welcome note:

“Until very recently, JKRowling.comopens in new window was a list of links to my publishers – boring, I think you’ll agree. So I thought I’d liven it up a little.

I received so many thousands and thousands of letters these days that it is impossible to read, let alone answer, them all. A proper website seems like a great way to communicate directly with Harry Potter fans. Everything on here was written by ME, J.K. Rowling. This is where I can tell you the truth about rumours or news stories, where I can share the extra information I Haven’t put in the books, where I can give you hints and clues about what’s going to happen to Harry next, and where I can announce I’ve finished book six…and no, that’s not going to happen very soon.

Occasionally the Dark Mark will flash at you. This is a SPOILER WARNING. It refers only to information hidden in book five, The Order of the Phoenix - if you haven’t yet finished reading the other four, proceed at your peril!

Anyway, I really hope you enjoy wandering around my desk (which was specially tidied for your visit). Don’t know anything over, please. And watch out for Peeves.

With love from JK Rowling

(Jo to you)
