Ever since J.K. Rowling announced the release date for her seventh book of July 21, 2007, she has disappeared and drop from public view. Now her web site has gone down and her home in Edinburgh, Scotland is for sale and empty. No one has seen or interviewed Rowling since December 2006. No one knows her forwarding address and the postal service refuse to tell us as the author has requested that her forwarding address is marked private.
The last and final Harry Potter book is entitled: "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows". Some leaks out earlier suggested that the title was called Harry Potter and the Deadly Gazebo. Later Rowling decided to drop the gazebo plot and rename it Harry Potter and the Deadly Quidditch Pitch. Then a brilliant idea hit Rowling to rename her book to Harry Potter and the Deadly Hallows. She finally changed the word deadly into deathly to make it more 'chilling', and less final.
Juggling three titles for her book really shows just how brilliant Rowling's mind really is.
Indications from trustworthy sources at TheSpoof.com indicate Harry Potter will be killed at the end of the book. It has been rumoured that the author has gone into hiding fearing angry backlash from Harry Potter supporters.
Will Harry Potter sales take a nosedive? Your guess is as good as mine. Rowling certainly thinks so. She's looking forward to her retirement and has cancelled her book reading at Edinburgh Castle. Thank God for small mercies.
The next instalment of the never-ending saga will no doubt be released when Rowling's bank balance drops below £500m ($1bn).
