According to J. K. Rowling, there will only be seven books of Harry Potter's adventures. She has said in various interviews, as well as on her own website, that she will not be writing any more Harry Potter books. There has been some discussion that she might consider writing another informative book, like an encyclopedia, about the Harry Potter universe for charity, similar to her other works Quidditch Through the Ages, The Tales of Beedle the Bard, and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Although JK Rowling hasn't continued Harry's adventures in her literary writings, she has written a short prequel with the younger James and Sirius. Rowling has admitted that it was only for a fundraiser and that she isn't planning on making a book out of it. You can find the text at Mugglenet
In March of 2008, Rowling confirmed she is was working a 'political fairy tale' for children that was nearing completion. She is also writing a book for adults that she has yet to release more information on.
In October, J.K Rowling said in an interview with Oprah Winfrey that she wasn't over Harry Potter and could write two more books. However she didn't state that she would.
Upon hearing that J.K Rowling might write another book Daniel Radcliffe, who played Harry in the movies, asked her if this was true. J.K Rowling responded saying that because she was pleased with his performance in the last movie she promised never to write another Harry Potter book.
