“Half Blood Prince” Completed – Release Date Coming Tuesday Morning
If you click the Christmas tree in the mirror on J.K. Rowling’s official site, the door will open and you’ll be greeted by another Christmas tree with presents under it. If you click the smallest present on the right, you get a riddle. Answer it correctly, click the present to its left and get another question. When all of the presents’ riddles are answered, you will get a special message containing some very, very good news.
I know you all expected this to happen on Christmas Day, but I was sure that those of you who celebrate Christmas have better things to do on the day itself than fight your way into my study, whereas those of you who DON’T celebrate Christmas would definitely prefer not to wait until the twenty fifth – so…
‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’ is COMPLETED and has been delivered to my English[-]language publishers, who hope to announce the publication date within 24 hours.
Alight I have jokes about HP&THBP racing my third baby into the world, I have in fact had all the time I needed to tinker with the manuscript to my satisfaction and I am as happy as I have ever been with the end result. I only hope you feel that it was worth the wait when you finally read it!
Wishing everybody a wonder holiday and a happy and peaceful 2005,
With love from,
