HBP “Early Next Year” Release Rumors False

A TimesOnline article said today that Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince was “expected to be released early next year.”
This is not true. As a trusted source has said, all that’s definite is that it will possibly be released next year. JKR is still writing the book (which also puts to rest other rumors that surfaced today about it already going through editing), and once she does hand it in there will need to be plenty of time for editing and marketing before it goes on sale. There is no real, supposed, projected or definite publication date yet (as the lack of one on JKRowling.com would seem to suggest).
