J. K. Rowling's Secret Street View

Following the completion of the seven Harry Potter books and eight films, J.K. Rowling has something new to announce. Even though this is not a new book, we have been informed it is something equally exciting.


As a teaser before the official announcement, ten letters have been hidden on the website below for you to find. To locate them you need to find ten sets of coordinates, enter them into the search box one set at a time, and take a look around.

This is the first coordinate: 42.523356,-70.890698

The rest will be revealed among nine other Harry Potter fan sites at intervals throughout the 15th and 16th of June 2011.  Find the coordinates, enter them on the site below and you could be one of the first to piece the word together.

(Please note - These letters are magic, therefore do not exist in the real world...)

Good luck to you all.

If you're having trouble finding the clue, simply zoom in on the map so you enter the street view!

Hey everyone. I found this and with all respect to Jo and Harry Potter, for whom I really love, I believe I found three pictures of her site. It looks wonderful!!!!

SPOILER: With an encyclopedia section, and a shop section, and a ‘post’ section…And it looks like you can have an account there…All with that lovely, signature JKR look. Link: http://www.clubedoslugue.com/galeria/displayimage.php?album=974&pos=0

Since Jo used this as one of the 10 fansites, I hope she approves of what they post.. :/ Love you Jo, and Harry Potter!! :)

Makes sense. Seems like we’re only a few people reading and posting here since anyone else coming to the site doesn’t have access to this comment section right now, heh.

LOL! I went to her new website before I even knew about this contest. I won’t give it away, though the answer is an anagram for the site. Have fun!

PS If you can’t wait, Google ‘JK Rowling’s new website’.
