I really think she should release the 7th book in the Harry Potter series before she gets involved with side projects.

/no, it hasn't been released yet - that miserable failure of a 7th book was obviously some sort of cruel, cruel joke, and the real 7th book will be coming out soon

I felt the same about the sixth book, but really when you read them all together it is surprising how well she ties up all the loose ends.

When you think about it it is rare that the last book for such a popular series can be anything but a massive disappointment. Most trilogies stumble in the closing act, but she wrote a septilogy (if that is a real word) and made every book in it work as a part of the whole. That is an impressive feat.


Funnily enough, book 6 was by far my favorite of the series. The problems I had with book 7 were (and these are by no means original or unique to me) that a good chunk of the book was angsty teenagers sitting in a tent while much more interesting things happened "off screen," and the brutal and inexcusable deus ex machina in the climax. It is, without a doubt, the worst book I've ever finished.

Because if this book fails, what will she do with her millions of dollars? Oh, what a precarious position she's in.

Unless an effort from JK Rowling involves getting one of the nubile, now-legal female stars or recurrings from the movies getting naked in my living room, I'm uninterested.
