Last 'Potter' book to be called 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows'
UPI News Service, 12/21/2006
J.K. Rowling, the creator of Harry Potter said the title of the seventh and final book in the series will be "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows."
Rowling has said she has slipped into old habits to finish the book, telling The Telegraph that she has once again begun writing in longhand at a cafe in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Rowling started out as a poor single mother in the early 1990s but she now owns homes in London, Edinburgh and Perthshire. But she told The Telegraph she still finds a noisy cafe a better work environment than her own study.
She said on her Web site that she is close to completing the book and is working on the final chapters in public but would not reveal which cafe she spends her time in.
In her latest blog, Rowling said: "The long lack of updates has been due to some very hard work. I'm now writing scenes that have been planned, in some cases, for a dozen years or even more."
No release date for the seventh book has been set.
