Hey kids and detective novel writers,

Did you see this? It's a story of a writer writing under a pseudonym and not selling very well while getting some nice criticism.

What's Peanut Eating? I think it was Kix.


  1. I can neither confirm nor deny that I am JK Rowling.

  2. Thank you, that's all I needed to know. Don't think it was lost on me that "scott g. f. bailey" is actually an anagram for "saily g. f. bottec," which is surprisingly close to "sarry g. f. botter," which some people might read as "harry g. f. potter" if they had had enough to drink.

  3. "Patience Quince" = "Ace Pence In Quit"

    Makes you think.

  4. Bahahaha! It makes me a little sad that her secret was uncovered so quickly. I'll bet she was thoroughly enjoying the small sales and high critical acclaim. Now it will all go downhill.

    Scott, I am sad to discover you aren't JK Rowling. Oh, wait ...

  5. I'll be very curious to read both of her non-Harry Potter books to see what I think of them myself. This experiment is interesting, though, I must say. I'm going to start using the name Davin G. F. Argyle from now on. My next book will be called Ace Pence In Quit.

    1. I'll blurb your book! If it's a detective novel, that is. With child detectives who use magic. In Thailand.

  6. These sound like good plans to me. :)
