The New York Times is reporting Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling will be in attendance at a press conference tomorrow morning, following an expected YouTube announcement regarding Pottermore.  The articles states:

Ms. Rowling will appear at the Victoria and Albert Museum on Thursday morning. Her spokeswoman instructed reporters in an e-mail that Ms. Rowling would not permit one-on-one interviews. Filming, recording and photography will also be banned from the news conference. 
This information has not been confirmed, but tomorrow (Thursday, June 23) at 7am EST is the estimated time at which the countdown clock on YouTube.com/JKRowlingAnnounces is slated to go online.

As always, stay close to Leaky for all the latest on Pottermore.

My Alarm? Set. I don’t even care what it is, as long as it’s as epic as people are making it out to be!!

What could Pottermore possible be? Oh there’s so much it could be! I really hope it won’t be disappointing (but nothing she does ever is) and I hope time would fly! =]

It’s 6am here, and lately I’ve been waking up at 10am this summer, so I hope I’ll be able to wake up. I calculated the time on Saturday based on the countdown, so I’ve had plenty of warning, though. I was going to practice getting up earlier this week for it, but that hasn’t happened. lol.

I just read on another site that it’s an interactive site where you gather info for a treasure hunt in the real world.

I just hope it won’t be a mmorpg. This would be quite disappointing as far as I’m concerned. I hope for something around an online diagon Alley (as seen on the supposedly fake pictures of pottermore which can be found on the internet), centered around the long awaited Scottish Book, as a massive online encyclopaedia. Followed by a book release ? I miss the midnight openings ! Hogwarts, a History, hardcover… I want it !
