J.K. Rowling Announces New (Harry-Free) Book

The good news is that J.K. Rowling is set to release another book this year. The bad news is that it's got nothing to do with wizards, witches, or Whomping Willows. 

The Harry Potter author — or, rather, her male alter ego, Robert Galbraith — revealed on Twitter this morning that a new book has just been completed. The book is the third in the Cormoran Strike crime series penned under the Galbraith pseudonym. A follow-up tweet from publisher Little, Brown Book Group confirmed the book's title — Career of Evil, (mwah ha ha) — and autumn release date. 

The exciting news also led to a tweet-fest of sorts between Rowling and Galbraith, who, may we remind you, are the same person. Yes, it's all a bit confusing. Naturally, Percy Weasley himself had to get involved, leading to this adorably amusing Twitter exchange. 


Alas, Neville Longbottom remains silent on the matter. But, we'll be checking his Twitter and Instagram every few minutes just to make sure. Ahem.
