J.K. Rowling has a crime novel out under a fake name.


Um, guys, I just saw on The Leaky Cauldron that J.K. Rowling secretly published a crime novel under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith on April 30! And according to the reviews on Amazon, it’s not bad at all.

The book is called The Cuckcoo’s Calling and you can get it on Amazon. Oh yeah, and it’s going to be a series! I’m so bummed that I found out today and not yesterday Amazon Prime won’t be able to get it to me until Wednesday and I’ll already be in San Diego by then. I’m going to have to actually go to Barnes & Noble tomorrow and see how much it is there. I’m really excited about this, aaaahhh!!! I think it’s definitely going to be a much better read than The Casual Vacancy, which I am ashamed to admit I still haven’t finished reading yet.

In a statement from her publicist, Rowling said, “I hoped to keep this secret a little longer because being Robert Galbraith has been such a liberating experience.  It has been wonderful to publish without hype or expectation, and pure pleasure to get feedback from publishers and readers under a different name.”
