J. K. Rowling, the author of the best selling book series in history, the Harry Potter series, is about to publish her second crime novel in June under the pen name, Robert Galbraith, AFP reported.


According to Galbraith’s Twitter, a follow-up to the first book called “The Cuckoo’s Calling” will be published on June 19 under the title “The Silkworm.”

The first book was published in April 2013. The book was approached by couple of television companies for adaptations, but did not catch the eyes of the public.

The sales of “The Cuckoo’s Calling” rose to fame when lawyer Chris Gossage blew Rowling’s cover. The scandal ended when Gassage was fined $1,670 and issued a written rebuke from the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

Rowling told AFP that she used a pseudonym because, as one of the world’s most famous authors, she had been yearning to “work without hype or expectation and to receive totally unvarnished feedback.”
