J.K. Rowling Has Turned in the Mansucript For Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Posted on December 20, 2004

The Associated Press reports that J.K. Rowling has announced that she has finally finished the sixth Potter novel, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

Rowling says in her statement, "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 25th."

Ms. Rowling said that although she is expecting her third child, she has had the time "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 it was worth the wait when you finally read it."

We're not worried. We know it will be worth it.
