Merlin’s beard! Could there be an eighth Harry Potter book in the works?

Author J.K. Rowling has revealed that she is considering expanding the famed series about the boy wizard.

In a transatlantic interview with queen bee Oprah Winfrey, Rowling admitted that Harry, Ron and Miss Granger are still in her head and that she “could definitely” write several new books about them.

“I’m not going to say I won’t,” she said in an interview conducted in Scotland, leaving audience members on the edge of their seats.

Rowling also revealed the trouble and rejection she originally endured while trying to get the first book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, published.

When asked, she said: “A lot of people didn’t want it. A lot of people just sent it back, virtually by return of post. It was like a boomerang.”

She added: “But for some reason I can even remember being quite pleased with it. I know it sounds masochistic but I was even quite pleased with the rejection letters. I just had faith in the story.”
