J.K. Rowling has two new books coming out

On December 23, 2016

J.K. Rowling has just made our year. When responding to a fan on Twitter she confessed that she is writing two books, one under her pseudonym Robert Galbraith. The novels in the Robert Galbraith series feature detective Cormoran Strike and are set to be adapted for TV.

Rowling confirmed she is writing, “One of each, but I'm not sure which will come out first. I'll let you know as soon as I do!”

The book under her own name will not be about Newt Scamander, played by Eddie Redmayne in the Fantastic Beasts film. We can’t wait to hear more.

What we do know is that she writes early in the morning and in bed. She shared her routine on Twitter.

“Wake up, drag the laptop into bed and get to work. There's really no need for formal attire.”

We love that J.K. Rowling writes in her pyjamas. We can’t wait to read the next two novels penned in bed.
