JK Rowling Lands £5M Deal to Write Adult Novel

JK Rowling has just signed a £5 million deal with Little Brown for her first novel aimed at adults!

The writer became a household name after the success of her YA series about the wizarding world. It’s true that the Harry Potter series is considered young adult fiction, but let’s be real. If we had to guess demographics for the readers of the Potter books, we’d wager there are far more adults than there are kids.

Harry Potter was so successful because it was able to break into multiple markets. We bet she’ll break just as many records with her first adult work of fiction.

The Daily Mail reported that Rowling said about the project, “Although I’ve enjoyed writing it every bit as much, my next book will be very different to the Harry Potter series. The freedom to explore new territory is a gift that Harry’s success has brought me.”

Estimated to be worth £530 million, the author has certainly done her part to give back to the world that has given so much to her. From making the books more eco-friendly to supporting literacy programs to acting as chair of the children’s organization Lumos, the writer has used her power and influence for the power of good. Dumbledore would be proud.

We’re sure with the new book in the works that we’ll be hearing a lot more from Rowling in the near future. We can’t wait.

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.
