In June, Leaky reported that author J.K. Rowling had ended her association with the Christopher Little Agency.

The Telegraph has published a follow-up article to this story today, reporting that Ms. Rowling and Mr. Little reached a financial settlement outside of court. According to Mr. Little's spokesperson:

“JK Rowling and her former agent, Christopher Little, have reached an amicable agreement concluding their long-standing business relationship, the terms of which remain confidential. No further comments will be issued by either party.” 

Ms. Rowling is now represented by The Blair Partnership, a new firm launched by Neil Blair, her longtime agent at the Christopher Little Agency.

Very glad this was settled without the need of litigation… Everyone gets to move on without any muss or intrusive press coverage…

I don’t what to say on this issue. Mainly because I don’t know the back story. Were they conflicting? Well, I respect anything Jo does. :)

It looks like Neil Blair was always her agent, be just worked at Christopher Little, and now has decided to start his own, and Jo being just and loyal, went with him. That’s cool.

I have to say I am disappointed in Jo about this. It came as a shock to Mr Little and this Blair guy is a lawyer for goodness sake. He’s never been mentioned before. It was Barry Cunningham and Christopher Little who gave her her start. Badly done Jo.
