Rumor has it that J.K. Rowling is working on a "romantic novel" to follow the hit "Harry Potter" series but the author is saying otherwise.

"There's a story in today's Mail that I was in a London bar on Monday 'celebrating' handing in a 'romantic novel' to my publishers..." J.K. Rowling started.

"1) I haven't handed in ANY kind of novel to my publishers. I'm only half way through my current book. 2) It isn't a 'romantic' novel," the author said on Twitter.

She added, "And 3) (brace yourselves) I sometimes have a drink even when I haven't finished a book. Yes, that's how rock and roll I really am."

"Back to work now. See you when I've finished something X," she concluded her post.

The "Harry Potter" author previously set Twitter ablaze when she dished out an anagram in reference to a certain character.

"Cry, foe! Run amok! Fa awry! My wand won't tolerate this nonsense," she said.

The cryptic tweet actually translated to: "Newt Scamander only meant to stay in New York for a few hours..." as guessed by Emily Strong.

As previously reported, the anagram could be a teaser for an alleged upcoming film adaptation of "Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them."

The novel was published in 2009 and is described as "an extensive introduction to the magical beasts that exist in the magical, non-Muggle world," according to a Bloomsbury product page.

In a statement issued by J.K. Rowling last year, she confirmed that "Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them" won't be a sequel.

"'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world," Rowling said in the statement, as quoted by Time.

"The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt's story will start in New York, seventy years before Harry's gets underway," she added at that time.

As for J.K. Rowling's rumored next project, it isn't clear if the book has anything to do with Newt Scamander or if it's Harry Potter-related.

The Independent said that the author is quite busy working on follow-ups for "The Casual Vacancy." She has also written under the pen name of Robert Galbraith - writing "The Cukoo's Calling" and "The Silkworm," added the outlet.

Harry Potter fans shouldn't be disappointed though, as the author did say she was busy "tweaking a screenplay."
