How Not to Get Sued by J.K. Rowling

How Not to Get Sued by J.K. Rowling



In February 2019, Bruce Masters reached out to the famous children’s author J.K. Rowling with an unprecedented proposal. He offered her the chance to collaborate with him on a book he had written about her, One Election Please… How J.K. Rowling Bought British Politics, Hid Her True Self and Hoodwinked the World—an Unauthorised Biographical Exposé.

This is the shocking behind-the-scenes account of their communication over a 14-day period, chronicling Masters’ attempts to forge a working relationship with Rowling, offering her a measure of editorial control over her own exposé. He shares the emails he sent to her solicitors and describes the responses he received, revealing much about the working practices of the famously litigious author and her team of solicitors.

To Masters’ surprise, his offer was spurned in a bid by Team Rowling to take possession of his book with no mutually agreed terms and no timescales for resolution.  Masters’ polite attempts to protect his intellectual property were met with heated, accusatory, even threatening responses from the children’s author via her legal team.

Amid the tense exchanges between the two authors, several surprising events occurred, including a case of mistaken identity and bewildering emails from a number of sources, all documented in Masters’ journal.

Tips for contacting the famous author as well as a raft of cheeky jokes on the theme of How to Avoid Getting Sued by J.K. Rowling are included.

Ever wondered what J.K. is like when the cameras are turned off?
