New J.K. Rowling children's book for 2013?

Does anyone else think that J.K. Rowling's new children's book that she has been discussing in a few interviews for The Casual Vacancy that she says will most likely be her next book to be published, be released next year?

Duh, I wrote the wrong thing

I dunno- I would like to see another children's book by her, but then there's the fact that Potter is still quite fresh in our minds at least, so maybe people will be expecting another Potter

Then again, DH came out in, what, 2007? If a children's book did come out next year, it's a fair gap between the two

I hope so, I wouldn't mind reading it even if it is for little kids!
It would be cool if it were HP related, like if it took place in the magical world about a little kid discovering his magic powers, that'd be cute.

Maybe it'd be cute, but it'd also get a lot of stick for using an old idea...cashing in on previous success, you know...

What? I watched all her interviews and I recall mention of possibly another children's book, but so soon? Where is this coming from?

I think it would depend on the story if it was another Potter book. Personally, if she ever did go back to Potter I'd want the book(s) to be more adult. I know JKR seems to cater to the kids when it comes to Harry Potter, but I can't see her writing another book about that world without it being too similar to what she has already written.

I think her new children's book will be completely unrelated to Potter though. Didn't she say in an interview that its target age is 8 or something? (I've seen this somewhere, in one of her Casual Vacancy interviews?)

She has said it is for a younger audience than Potter (so around 8 would be a good guess) and she has also said that she isn't planning anything Potter-related. It'll be interesting to see what eventuates.

I don't think it will be in 2013 though. 2014 at the earliest, and possibly not until 2015.

I'd probably check it out, even though I haven't even read Casual Vacancy yet. As much as I'd love for her to go back to Potter, it's good that she's trying to branch out more and get away from it for a while.

This is very true. I wouldn't mind if she did the potter world again, but in a way, it would almost feel like she would be overusing the idea if she chose to do a series.

One thing baffles me: if it was around four or five years after she finished the Harry Potter series that she started writing another one, why would she publish another book so soon?

None-the-less, I am looking forward to her new children's book (even if it is based for fans younger than Harry Potter was)!

I'm wondering if JK Rowling's next children's book could be one of the 11 Doctor Who ebooks coming out?

I heard mention of this. I'd really hope it's just a rumor.
