Rowling leaves Christopher Little Agency
30.06.11 | Charlotte Williams
J K Rowling's agent Neil Blair has left the Christopher Little Literary Agency, setting up a new company, The Blair Partnership. Rowling is moving with Blair, having "terminated her association" with the Christopher Little Agency.
A statement from Rowling's PR representatives, Stonehill Salt, said: "We can confirm that J K Rowling has terminated her association with the Christopher Little Literary Agency. She will be represented forthwith by Neil Blair, who has left the Christopher Little Literary Agency and set up The Blair Partnership."
Blair's current base is at strategic digital agency TH_NK's offices in east London. TH_NK and Blair worked together to develop the Pottermore site, through which Rowling's Harry Potter books will be sold exclusively as e-books, though it is not yet known if TH_NK will be involved in Blair's new company.
Blair refused to comment when contacted by The Bookseller. Little was unavailable for a response.
