Author JK Rowling has denied reports that she is releasing 12 'Harry Potter' short stories for Christmas this month via her site Pottermore.

Pottermore's Facebook account said that the media incorrectly assumed their post, reported Ace Showbiz.

"Just to put everyone straight on the misleading media reports of 'Twelve New Stories for Christmas'. As true Potter fans worked out straight away, our 12 days of festive surprises and accompanying rhyming riddles refer to new potions and Moments in addition to several new entries by JK Rowling that will be posted on pottermore.com between 12th and 23rd December," the announcement read.

"Sorry to disappoint fans, but there will not be a set of 12 new short stories, one for each day of Christmas. Even Pottermore wouldn't be that generous."

Previously, many fans were excited when reports suggest that the author would be releasing new materials.

Pottermore had previously said that there would be "wonderful writing by JK Rowling in Moments from Half-Blood Prince, shiny gold Galleons and even a new potion or two" on Facebook.
