The Bookseller is reporting that Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling has ended her association with the Christopher Little Literary Agency and will be represented in the future by a new firm launched by longtime agent Neil Blair.  The formation of The Blair Partnership follows Mr. Blair's exit from the Christopher Little Talent Agency.  A rep for Ms. Rowling released the following statement in regards to the author's change in representation:

"We can confirm that J.K. Rowling has terminated her association with the Christopher Little Literary Agency. She will be represented forthwith by Neil Blair, who has left the Christopher Little Literary Agency and set up The Blair Partnership."
The report goes on to note the formation of Mr. Blair's partnership is still in its "infancy" with details "still to be ironed out," but "Blair's current base is at strategic digital agency TH_NK's offices in east London. TH_NK and Blair worked together to develop the Pottermore site, through which Rowling's Harry Potter books will be sold exclusively as e-books, though it is not yet known if TH_NK will be involved in Blair's new company."

These things often happen without there being a terrible conspiracy. It can be as simple as the primary agent has grown very large thanks to the relationship (Rowling) but has now included other interests competing with Rowling’s. Perhaps Little has grown large and has Rowling’s account is on auto-pilot. If Little has been taking possibly (in the beginning) a well earned 15% but now has simply shuffled off the account to an employee’s cubicle, it may be time to reconsider the relationship and engage the employee in a new relationship. OR it could just be some good old Shakespearian adultry with intrique.
