J.K.

Initially, people had no idea that Robert Galbraith was none other than J.K. Rowling. She wanted this to be kept a secret. However, a few months after the release, word got out that Robert Galbraith was none other J.K.Rowling herself and as a result the sales of the book increased exponentially. According to Amazon, the sales of the book increased by 150,000% after this big revelation. Although many sources claimed that Rowling was miffed with this revelation, it was a joyous moment for all the Harry Potter fans. Although, it does not involve any magical school, flying on broomsticks, spells, enchantments and ghosts, it does give the reader a sense of excitement and thrill, with its gripping story.
People have a very high expectation from the TV series and hopefully, the TV show will live up to people’s expectations.
