New Harry Potter on the way

Earlier tonight I received the following note from Rowling’s Canadian publisher, Raincoast Books:

December 20, 2004

Today on her website, J.K. Rowling wished fans a Merry Christmas and a

Happy New Year.

She also announced that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Book 6 in

the Harry Potter series) is completed and an official announcement from

the publishers will be available within 24 hours.

Strangely, given that we’re talking about Harry Potter, I’ve found no corroborating stories online nor have I yet found anything on Rowling’s site….

Is this a scoop?

UPDATE: Here’s the first story I’ve seen backing this up. The date should be announced later today.
