ReBlog: What J.K. Rowling’s Pseudonymous Novel Says About Commercial Success

“Even J.K. Rowling can write a good book that drops into the ocean and barely makes a ripple.”

–  Nathan Bransford

 

In case anyone hasn’t caught the news recently, a tiny little detective novel which came out back in April has now risen to the top seller lists. Why? Because everyone just found out that this tiny little detective novel was actually written by J.K. Rowling.

Very sneaky, Miss Rowling! But really, can anyone blame her for wanting to release a book under a name that’s not…well, one of the most famous names in the literary world?

Anyway. Published author and avid blogger Nathan Bransford posted about this today before I got the chance to, and he says pretty much everything I was going to say.

So, take it away, Nathan:

    I’ve been hearing a lot about this. I can’t blame the woman for wanting to publish under another name. Stephen King did it! So many authors do it. So many people think you should publish a certain kind of book if that’s what you’re known for. J. K. has never hidden the fact that she wanted to write a mystery. Glad she reached her goal.
