Great points! Though, we still think that J.K. Rowling could have learned a lot about her writing through criticism uninfluenced by her famous name (by keeping her pen name a secret (by having more control over the process)). Her whole point in using “Robert Galbraith” was undermined when the pen name leaked. Otherwise, she could have just used “J.K. Rowling” to keep writing and becoming that “better author” that he speaks of.
I happened upon a blog entry the other day that asked why J.K. Rowling hadn’t self-published her new crime books. The blogger went on at great length to illustrate the advantages Rowling could have enjoyed if only she had hired her own editor, publicist and so on. The decision of the famous author, evidently, was too inexplicable and wrong-headed to be believed.
