J.K. Rowling has everyone hanging on her every word. Literally.
One fan was desperate for more details on the next installment in Rowling's Cormoran Strike series:
@jk_rowling Can you give a hint as to what the next Strike novel will be called?— Alexis Marie⚡️ (@Lumos405) March 14, 2017
The Harry Potter author responded with this cryptic hangman-style clue:

Cue hilarious suggestions for what the title of her new crime novel could be:

@jk_rowling My best stabs:— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) March 14, 2017
Did I get it? :-D

We can hear the chuckles from here as she read through the list of guesses. She dropped a few more hints along the way before the game was up.
I would also read a book called 'Python Shame', but that's not the fourth Strike. https://t.co/hSvXNSIgue— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) March 14, 2017
Somebody just sent me a joke suggestion that is one letter away from the title...— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) March 14, 2017

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner. https://t.co/2aOXDYi6qA— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) March 14, 2017
J.K. Rowling has published three novels in the series under the name Robert Galbraith, which detail the adventures of private investigator Cormoran Strike. The BBC is producing a television series based on the first three novels in the series. There is still no word on when the series will air nor when 'Lethal White' will hit the bookshelves.
