Previously we told you that author J.K. Rowling would be the subject of an exclusive interview on NBC‘s “The Today Show,” which will air later this week. A preview clip was broadcast this morning on the program, and you can now watch a clip from this new upcoming interview with Jo, here. In this clip, Jo speaks about her emotions while writing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

In the article that accompanies the video clip, Jo speaks again about how emotional it was for her to finish the novel, and says I was hard to live with,” for week after completing the final installment of the series. Jo continues on to note that “I need to be off writing,” for a short time now that the book has been released.

We hope to have this clip for you in our galleries shortly and will update when we can. The entire interview with J.K. Rowling will be broadcast on “The Today Show” this Thursday (July 26) and Friday (July 27) mornings.

I can’t wait to see this whole interview with JKR on Thursday and Friday. I want to know why she made all the choices that she did with regards to the books. I loved this book so much!

I’m going to miss having Harry, Hagrid, the Twins and of course, Snape, in my daily life now. At least with the earlier books, you knew there was more to the saga coming up. Now it’s completed and it’s a very sad feeling, really.

By the way, I miss the comments section. I wanted to go back and talk to everyone when I finished the book and see what you all thought.

So if you are stopping by here to comment… HI ELLADORA, RHIANNON, MOLLYWOBBLES, FORGETMENOT, CORDELIA, BOOKWORM JEN, LEMONFAERIE (& all the little Lemons) and everyone else that I miss talking to!

It’s funny, listening to Jo talk about how Harry was in very formative times in her life and how I’m the same way (I’m probably not the only one). Harry’s been with me through high school and college and I just graduated a couple months ago, so I feel like I grew up with Harry. I’m going to miss all of this a lot, even when I go back and re-read the books. But I’m happy that I had it.

I can’t wait to see the rest of the interview (will the whole thing be on Leaky once it comes out? I don’t have TV and I will probably be at work when it’s on anyway).

Deathly Hallows was a great book! I loved it so much. Last night, it hit me that the books are over and I felt so sad, but I would feel worse if there wasn’t a complete closure, which there is. I love Jo Rowling!! She is my hero _

I also miss the poll comments. I hope she helps fill in some of the unanswered questions. Is Leaky trying to get an interview again?

I really want to hear what she has to say about why she ended it the way she did. I loved the book and I hope she writes some more. It was so great to look forward to the books. But this time I’ll feel sad rereading them.
