JK Rowling announces new fairytale for children will be published free online.

JK Rowling is to publish a new children’s book, a fairy tale “about truth and the abuse of power” for free online for children in lockdown.

The Ickabog, which is set in an imaginary land unrelated to any of Rowling’s other works, will be serialised online from Tuesday afternoon, in 34 daily, free instalments. It will then be published as a book, ebook and audiobook in November, with Rowling’s royalties to go to projects assisting groups impacted by the pandemic.

Rowling described The Ickabog as “a story about truth and the abuse of power”. It came to her “well over a decade ago”, so she stressed that it “isn’t intended to be read as a response to anything that’s happening in the world right now”.

Rowling is asking children to send in illustrations for each chapter, with the best to be included in the print editions of the story in November. “I want to see imaginations run wild! Creativity, inventiveness and effort are the most important things: we aren’t necessarily looking for the most technical skill,” she wrote.

Below you will find a link to the book's website:

What a brilliant idea! Do you think that more writers should do the same? Reply

So she might, she has done well from her work to date. While supporting this idea, don't forget to support other published authors who are still trying to get by on less publicity. Reply
