Harry Potter is like an ex-lover: JK Rowling
London: `Harry Potter` author JK Rowling says that she has never cried over a man like she has wept over Harry Potter.
Rowling, 45, who has announced plans to launch a new interactive website `Pottermore`, said that working on the new virtual project was like reuniting with an ex-boyfriend, reported a website.
"It`s like an ex-boyfriend. I`ve never cried for a man as I cried for Harry Potter. Now we`re casually dating and we have been for two years," said Rowling.
Rowling has also said that she will provide a more detailed explanation of the fictional game `Quidditch` because she has been approached by so many fans who wish to know about it.
"The number of geeky men who come up to me to argue about `Quidditch`, I`d be a lot richer if I got a quid for every one. They think it`s illogical. I had a speech by Dumbledore in the first book explaining why it`s not illogical, but it never made it in. It will at some point," she said.
`Pottermore` will open to the first million users to register on July 31, the date of `Harry`s birthday, and they will then help to shape the full site which launches in October.
