How Rowling's secret was revealed
July 19 , 2013
The unmasking of JK Rowling's identity as the author of her new book 'The Cuckoo's Calling' was not a well panned marketing scheme. But instead the public found out about it through social media. One of the partners at the law firm Russels is said to have shared this information with his wife's best friend who then tweeted about it.
The billionaire author doesn't sound forgiving, as per AP. "To say that I am disappointed is an understatement," she said. Rowling said that she is disappointed in the professional firm that she assumed she could trust with total confidentiality.
