July 21, According to J. Rowling , Robert Galbraith has some writing ahead of him.
Galbraith is actually Rowling's pen name adopted for the purpose of writing "The Cuckoo's Calling" and "The Silkworm," two in a series of detective novels starring private investigator Cormoran Strike.
The author of the " Harry Potter " series announced that Strike would eventually star in over seven books. That means Rowling is planning to produce more books about the PI than she did about the wizard who made her famous. According to the B BC , Rowling was asked a few days ago whether she was planning to write seven books about Cormoran Strike as she did about Harry Potter.
During the interview, Rowling commented that her plans for the series were very open-ended, saying, "I really love writing these books, so I don't know that I've got an end point in mind," according to the BBC.
So while a detective lives, you can keep giving him cases. Rowling's Strike novels have enjoyed critical and popular success.
When the first novel in her crime-writing spree came out, however, most readers had no idea that she had written anything at all. According to the Guardian , Rowling's first Cormoran Strike novel, "The Cuckoo's Calling," was originally released in as the debut novel of unknown author "Robert Galbraith. The book's initially modest sales skyrocketed and the title hit the top of Amazon's bestseller list. According to the BBC, the author also revealed at the event that "Galbriath" is about halfway through with the next Strike novel and already plotting the fourth in the series.
While "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" is scheduled to be released on November 18, , a release date for Galbraith's next crime novel remains, appropriately enough, a mystery.
