J.K. Rowling will release 12 Harry Potter short stories this month in celebration of the 12 days of Christmas, the Telegraph reports. At least one of the stories will reportedly focus on Harry's nemesis Draco Malfoy.

The author made the announcement in a newsletter to Harry Potter publishing website Pottermore members on Friday. The installments will be posted online daily beginning on Friday, December 12, at 5 a.m. PT and continuing until Christmas Eve.

Pottermore teased "wonderful writing by J.K. Rowling in Moments from 'Half-Blood Prince,' shiny gold Galleons and even a new potion or two."

Rowling wrote 5,000 words for Pottermore on Halloween about another character, Dolores Umbridge -- a teacher at Hogwarts.
