More Harry Potter books?

2010-10-02 07:27

 Los Angeles, US – What do you do after completing the most successful book series in history? Consider writing some more.

That’s according to author JK Rowling (45), who revealed for the first time yesterday that she may write three more instalments to follow the incredibly successful first seven Harry Potter books.

Prior to her comments to Oprah Winfrey, Rowling has always insisted that she was done with the tales of the extraordinary boy wizard. But she took a different note when chatting with the US talkshow queen.

“I could definitely write an eighth, ninth, tenth,” said the British author. “I’m not going to say I won’t. I don’t think I will ... I feel I am done, but you never know.”

“The end was huge. Like a bereavement,” said Rowling, referring to the completion of the Harry Potter series.

“Although I knew it was coming, you can’t prepare yourself for it. I was in a slight state of shock.”?
