In addition to all the ticket info on her upcoming visit to the US and public reading (see post below), author J.K. Rowling has also done some updating elsewhere on her website. In the rumours section, she talks about the grading process for those W.O.M.B.A.T.S, and let us know that another round is coming "in due course." Her diary has also been updated where she talks about her quest for notebook paper, and curiously says that she " is having house-elf trouble this week, though I think I've got them sorted out now. I'm all for house-elf rights, but the author is a dictator and the sooner they accept that, the better."
In the Rubbish bin, she addresses the response to her previous reflections on the issue of ultra thin celebrities, and responds to some criticism on that. Finally, in her F.A.Q, Jo addresses something near and dear to us here at Leaky, the pesky issue of the plural of Horcrux or "Horcri", as coined by our own John Noe on PotterCast. Jo writes:

Is the plural of 'Horcrux' 'Horcri?'
No, the plural of 'Horcrux' is 'Horcruxes', as demonstrated by the eponymous chapter in 'Half-Blood Prince.'
