Hold on to your hats, people: the publisher Little, Brown has just put out a press release giving us the title of
JK Rowling’s new book¦ The Casual Vacancy! The book will be out on the 27th September 2012 (worldwide release date) and Little, Brown also provided a plot summary:

When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock.

Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square
and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town
at war.

Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at
war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils¦Pagford is
not what it first seems.

And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes
the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph
in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected

Blackly comic, thought-provoking and constantly surprising, The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling’s first novel for adults.

Eeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Things to countdown to again! Let us know your initial thoughts in comments.
