Good Morning America: New J.K. Rowling Book on Lockdown
Good Morning America sat down with J.K. Rowling to talk about her new book A Casual Vacancy, which hits stores today. The book, which is already the best seller on Amazon.com even though it hasn’t been released yet, was very hard for people to get there hands on. The Good Morning America reporter who talked to Rowling said she had to read the book in the publisher’s office. And the only book in the whole of Scotland was used in the interview.
People are serious about this book not being leaked to the public. But Rowling said she wished it was just like any other normal book. She said the publicity has made it hard for her to live her life normally, even admitting she had to wear a disguise when she was picking out her wedding dress.

Good Morning America: Who is J.K. Rowling?
Rowling said the transformation from a poor single mother to having world wide fame has been hard to get used too. She said she is just now getting used to being so famous. But none of it has gone to her head. Rowling gives back millions to charities each year and says she is raising her children to not just become consumers, but also producers of things.
She said she feels happiest when she is with her family in Scotland, just walking along the beach. Rowling is scheduled to have one speaking appearance in the States, in New York City, which saw people lining up outside for days trying to get tickets.
