A Harry Potter update: J.K. Rowling is getting close to handing in her manuscript for the fifth book in the Harry Potter series. I don't have an online subscription to the Wall Street Journal, but the MarketWatcharticle indicates 3 to 6 months before the book is submitted to the publishers, and then 2 1/2 to five months to the release after it has been edited. It sounds like maybe a year?
UPDATE: I should have known. Eric has all the information already over at my new favorite spot to hang out...Blogcritics.
AND another UPDATE: I need to look harder. Here's the link to the story at the WSJ.
