Internationally renowned author JK Rowling has accepted a substantial donation to charity from the law firm that leaked the news that she had written a spy novel under a pseudonym.

The front-page story made headlines worldwide and Rowling’s lawyer says her client  was ” very much aggravated by repeated speculation that the leak had  been a carefully co-ordinated publicity stunt by her, her agent and her publishers designed to increase sales.”

The statement also  says the author  “has been left dismayed and distressed by such a fundamental betrayal of trust.”

The offending law firm has issued a public apology and says all worldwide  net royalties from book sales  of  “The Cuckoo’s Calling”  will be donated to The Soldiers’ Charity  for a period of three years, dating from July 14th.

That’s the day  that fictional author Robert Galbraith was exposed and identified to be the creator of Harry Potter – JK Rowling.
