J.K. Rowling Plans More than Seven “Cormoran Strike” Novels, Halfway Done with Third
J.K. Rowling revealed new details about her Cormoran Strike crime series, under the pen name Robert Galbraith, while at the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival.
At the festival, which serves as Rowling’s only public appearance as Galbraith for The Silkworm‘s release, the author talked about the future of the already very successful series.
Rowling has more than seven Cormoran Strike novels planned, meaning it will run longer than the Harry Potter series, reports the Crime Vault. She also says she is halfway done writing the third novel, which will reportedly focus on “the experience of returning soldiers.” Rowling also has the fourth novel already planned out.
The author showed up to the festival in a full jacket, shirt, and tie, proving that she can look good in just about anything. You can read the full press release below.
We’re quite excited to hear that Rowling is very committed to her new crime series, promising readers even more new and exciting cases for Strike to try and solve. The soldier-focused subject of the third novel isn’t too surprising, and it should bring an interesting connection to Strike’s own backstory.
