JK Rowling Releases New Personal Web Site

JK Rowling has made a return to the internet. Yes, the author has been an active Twitter user for years, but she had let her personal web site (formerly jkr.com) fall by the wayside claiming she “didn’t feel a connection with it.” Rowling tweeted this link to her new site, which was immediately overwhelmed by visitor traffic. A little bit of patience, refreshing and constant vigilance, will give you access to a plethora of Rowling’s shared content. 

Her first post, “Welcome to my new website!”, even features a FAQ section that promises to be updated along the way. Why didn’t Newt just apparate to the US? Why wasn’t the horcrux in Harry killed by the Basilisk venom in Chamber of Secrets? Those answers, and many more, have been answered by Rowling herself. pulse nightclub, jk rowling, wizarding week in review, comic book tribute, harry potter, wizarding week in review, fantastic beasts, jk rowling website
