J.K. Rowling Has Written A Secret Manuscript On A Party Dress

Ok, let’s all take a deep breath and not get too excited over this piece of news!

Abort mission! We just jumped over the moon and back. OMG! OMG! OMG!Ok so here is the lowdown – basically what we’ve gathered from CNN.  In an interview with Christiane Amanpour, Rowling revealed that she has written yet another fairy tale — but this one may never be published.

J.K. Rowling, who wrote her first novel longhand in one of Edinburgh cafés, says that she scrawled the secret manuscript across her 50th birthday party dress. She dropped this bombshell at the end of the interview. Potterheads, take a deep breath once again! Rowling disclosed that the “book” now hangs in her closet.

But I — I will tell you this. On my 50th — the theme of my 50th birthday, which I held at Halloween, even though that’s not really my birthday, was come as your own private nightmare. And I went as a lost manuscript. And I wrote over a dress most of that book. So that book, I don’t know whether it will ever be published, but it’s actually hanging in a wardrobe currently.

Well, let’s hope that Rowling does not accidentally launder that dress and stomp all over our dreams.

For the full interview, tune into “Amanpour” on CNN at 7 p.m. CET (2 p.m. ET) on 10th July.
