No Auction for J.K. Rowling's New NovelBooks
Though it would seem that a new novel by J.K. Rowling, brought to a new publisher, would incite the mother of all bidding wars, an Associated Press report has indicated that there was no auction for the book.
Rowling's agent, Neil Blair, would not disclose financial details of the deal but said there had been no auction. He said Thursday that Rowling was remaining with Bloomsbury in Britain for the Harry Potter books.
"As her new book is for a different audience, and marks a new literary direction for her, it made sense to separate the two and for her new book to be launched by a different publisher," said Blair.As always, stay close to Leaky, as well as our Facebook page and Twitter!
