Have your say

It must be hard being JK Rowling, to have a new book coming out in September knowing that there are legions of people out there willing her to fail.

She’s made her incredible fortune by writing the Harry Potter series and now she is about to enter the adult marketplace with a black comedy called The Casual Vacancy.

Already the critical vultures are circling on the internet, poison pens poised.

However excellent, or dire, the book is, JK will no doubt rise to the top of the bestseller list once again as legions buy her book.

Mind you, she’s already proven herself, so maybe she just doesn’t care about what anyone thinks. Having that much success must give you some freedom from self-doubt.
