J.K. Rowling has no need to whinge about her pseudonym being revealed
J.K. Rowling made a fortune writing her Harry Potter series. Now that she’s been revealed as the author of a crime mystery, The Cuckoo’s Calling, using the nom de plume of Robert Galbraith, she’s whingeing.
Rowling is said to be “angry” and “disappointed” that one of her solicitors’ employees, Chris Gossage, shared the information with a lady named Judith Callegari whom then tweeted it. We don’t think she’s got any need to be cross. Sales of the book have soared as a result and publishers Little, Brown have issued a reprint.
If Rowling, who has also stated that she continues to writing the series using the same pseudonym, truly didn’t want her identity to be unmasked, she shouldn’t have told anyone in the first place.
