JK Rowling Novel Details Released

Details of JK Rowling's new (and first) novel for adults have been released. It will be called The Casual Vacancy and is slated for release on September 27, 2012.

Here's the synopsis from Amazon:
When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty fa├žade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils…. Pagford is not what it first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the town’s council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations? Blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising.

It's available for pre-order for $21.00. Once released, it will be priced at $35.00 for the hardcover and $19.95 in e-book.

Happy reading,


  1. I think J.K. Rowling is an amazing writer- the way she puts words together easily creates images in my mind. I LOVE the HP books- and this book sounds quite different. I can only imagine it will be a great read- because boy, does she know how to tell a story. It will be interesting to read another book by her!


    1. Hi Stephanie,
      It's so nice to see you again. It will be very interesting to see this new direction that Jk's writing will take. I wish her all the best.
