After the hit novel series, Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling is now working for her next project. But, it will be a lot different than her previous masterpiece this time.

In the world of Internet, several new websites are emerging day by day. But one of these websites grab the attention of many people. Pottermore.com, a mysterious website that could be an online game, fansite, a digital encyclopedia or a social networking site.

Pottermore.com is the next project of J.K. Rowling, the author of the mega popular Harry Potter novel. The project will be unveiled soon, but they said that it is not another book like J.K. Rowling’s previous masterpiece. Pottermore also had its own Twitter account, which – so far holds – two updates. One is for its Youtube account – which only proclaims “The owls are gathering. Find out why soon” –  and the other one is to Secret Street View — a Google map-powered puzzle game that showed the letters “POTTERMORE” to the fans of Harry Potter who played it.

Are you going to find out why the owls are gathering?
