I say good on JK Rowling for taking a literary gamble

It’s important the parade continues – but safely

Have your say

Cynics are saying that she wasn’t selling enough copies and that’s why JK Rowling has come clean about writing a book under a pseudonym.

Yes, it’s been revealed that a new book she’s written called The Cuckoo’s Calling has been published under the name of Robert Galbraith.

In this guise, her work has received really good reviews, even if the sales haven’t been what you’d call astonishing (actually, as a writer, I think 1,000 copies is pretty good going).

The carpers are saying that JK should have looked for a new agent and publisher under her pseudonym, and gone down the hard route again.

I’m not saying anything other than good on her for sticking to what she loves, writing, and taking a gamble.
