Author makes

pledge…

JK Rowling has announced that she’s started working on a Harry Potter encyclopedia for its loyal

fans, and that she will also donate the profits to charity.

Encyclopedia To Charity

The author, who recently revealed the title of her

first adult novel The Casual Vacancy, has started work on her long-awaited guide to the popular franchises despite

having finished the last in the series Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows in 2007.

On the “frequently asked

questions” section on Rowling’s new author website she wrote: “For a long time I have been promising an encyclopedia of

Harry’s world, and I have started work on this now – some of it forms the new content in Pottermore. It is likely to be a

time-consuming job, but when finished I shall donate all royalties to charity.”

Having an estimated worth of over £600

million it’s no surprise that JK Rowling is keen to help charities – she has been heavily involved in work with children and

one parent families.

In 2008, Rowling was forced to take an independent American publisher RDR Books to court over its

plans to print a Harry Potter guide – which would have been an unauthorised guide to all of the Harry Potter

series.

She said that the Harry Potter Lexicon would have been the “wholesale theft of 17 years of my hard

work”, and she won the case.
