More Potter for Rowling


J.K. Rowling has a new Web site -- details to follow.

The site, Pottermore.com, is a new project for the Harry Potter author, spokesman Rebecca Salt said Thursday. The site is "not a new book" and "not directly related" to the final Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, which comes out next month, she said.

"We aren't saying any more than that," Salt said.

The site itself reveals little beyond a scrawled message from the author that reads "Coming soon ..."

Rowling already has a personal Web site, at jkrowling.com.

Pottermore.com also has a Twitter account, twitter.com/pottermore, and a YouTube countdown clock, which projects an author announcement for early June 23.

News of Pottermore.com emerged Wednesday night with messages sent to nine Potter fan sites and an official Potter Twitter account. Each site received one letter, the letters spelling out "pottermore." A leading Potter fan site, www.the-leaky-cauldron.org, alleges that it has seen "a preview of Pottermore and it is, in a word, breathtaking."
