J.K. Rowling, the incredibly successful author of the Harry Potter books has just tweeted that her new authors site is official open.
How to navigate
Use the slider at the bottom of the page to navigate the new Timeline, which will walk you through some of the different areas of her life, from when her parents first met on a train that was travelling from King’s Cross, London to Scotland, right up to an introduction to Pottermore which is a website where fans can discover more about the world of Harry Potter and access exclusive new content about the characters, places and objects in these much-loved stories. (still in Beta and not open to the public yet)
You can filter the Time line into 3 separate areas:
- About J.K.Rowling
- The New Book
- Harry Potter
It’s a very fluid site and works great. It has some fantastic information on the author and of course on the Harry Potter books themselves.
Well worth the wait and an improvement on the previous one which I actually really liked anyway.
