Rowling denies helping Kate to write the book

Post by Cheshire Cat on 12.04.11 7:41

Tucked away at the end of this article in todays Independent:

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/people/news/rowling-to-demolish-1631m-house-to-expand-garden-2266450.html

Yesterday it emerged that the author had given a helping hand to Kate McCann, the mother of the missing eight-year-old, Madeleine, with her account of the disappearance in Portugal four years ago. But Rowling denied reports that she had written the book which is due to be published next month.

In a statement a spokesman for the author said:

"While JK Rowling has been a long-term family supporter, her only part in bringing the book to publication has been in supporting the fact that her literary agent was also representing Kate. Beyond this, she has not been involved in any aspect of the writing, editing or publication of the book."

Dr Kate McCann is not 'very truthful'

Yesterday it emerged that the author had given a helping hand to Kate McCann, the mother of the missing eight-year-old, Madeleine, with her account of the disappearance in Portugal four years ago. But Rowling denied reports that she had written the book which is due to be published next month.

In a statement a spokesman for the author said:

"While JK Rowling has been a long-term family supporter, her only part in bringing the book to publication has been in supporting the fact that her literary agent was also representing Kate. Beyond this, she has not been involved in any aspect of the writing, editing or publication of the book."
So in the lead-up to the publication of this 'very truthful' book about Madeleine, which will contain Dr McCanns' 'version of the truth', it looks like Dr Kate McCann (ahd her advisers and public relations officers) have been very untruthful.

The Daily Mail account yesterday had this:

"Rowling also helped Kate and husband Gerry by putting them in touch with her agent Christopher Little who arranged a book deal with publishers Transworld".

I think we can believe J K Rowling in this instance. I suspect the sequence of events was this:

1. McCanns to J K Rowling - 'We need a publisher for our very truthful account of what happened to Madeleine, can you advise?'

2. J K Rowling to McCanns - 'Try Bill Scott-Kerr at my publishers, Transworld'

3. McCanns to J K Rowling - 'We need a bit of help writing the book'

4. J K Rowling to McCanns - 'Sorry, too busy'

5. Meeting of McCanns and their publishes, advisers and public relations team - 'Bring J K Rowling into it to boost sales, advance orders are well below our predictions'

6. Clarence Mitchell briefs press: 'J K Rowling helped Kate write her book'.

7. Mirror headline: J K ROWLING'S MADDY BOOK

8. J K Rowling and her advisers: 'WT!?*!!??**?!*?!*' Put out a statement denying this immediately!!


ANOTHER LIE

But here's another lie.

In Sunday's Express, Dr Kate McCann said it was the 'fear of attacks by groups like The Madeleine Foundation' which had decided her against doing book-signings.

But in the Daily Mail the following day, we read this:

"Heartbroken mother will not take part in celebrity-style signings because it would be 'in bad taste'".

OK, 'very truthful' Kate, which is it?

Too frightened of attacks?

Or 'book signings would be in bad taste'?

Or is it even a third, unmentionable reason? That is - Because so few people would want to buy a book by people who deliberately left their three children in a dark room, 120 yards' walk away, whilst wining and dining wth their mates, yet produced an unnamed Social Services official who allegedly said: 'This is well within the bounds of responsible parenting?

All of this after TWO of the their three children, only the previous night, had said: "Why weren't you here when we were crying last night?"

Or perhaps JKR has realised, belatedly, that to be associated with the book and the Child Neglector might not be the best publicity for a Children's author, and has backed off,. Or more likely has been told to by her agent

Here is Clarence Mitchell doing some damage limitation big grin


JK Rowling 'not helping Kate McCann write a book about Madeleine'


Madeleine McCann There is no truth in reports that Harry Potter creator JK Rowling is helping Kate McCann write her book about her missing daughter Madeleine, a family spokesperson said last night.

A number of national newspapers yesterday reported that the best-selling author was helping the McCanns write their account of how three-year-old Madeleine went missing while on holiday in Portugal almost four years ago.

Family spokesman Clarence Mitchell said that while Ms Rowling and the McCanns share the same literary agent, the author had played no part in the publication of the book, called Madeleine.

Speaking to the Mercury, he said: "In the light of recent reports citing JK Rowling's involvement in the Kate's forthcoming book, I can confirm that while she has been and continues to be a long time family supporter, her only involvement in bringing the book to publication has been via her literary agent Christopher Little, who has also been representing Kate.

"Beyond this, J K Rowling has had no involvement in the writing, editing or publication of the book."

The book will be released by publishers Transworld on May 12 – Madeleine's eighth birthday.

And the moral of the story ...
In the case of anything to do with the McCanns, believe NOTHING unless and until it is independently proved and with clear evidence.
Rather like the PJ did from the start, in fact.

Didnt they say confusion is good.

First they claimed this and that and that JK did this and that for them. This gets imprinted in people's mind, then later issue disclaimer statement that they never claimed that...but the impression is already given to the public.

Fact or Fiction - you decide...


Worthy of it's own page... you have to ask yourself if there is any investigative journalism and integrity being practiced in this country. And what blatant lies are being told on our front pages... just where do they get their stories I wonder, and will we ever be told the truth?






Rowling helps Kate write 'story'... 11 April 2011









*******************





J.K. Rowling's Denial
The Independent, 12 April 2011


"Yesterday it emerged that the author had given a helping hand to Kate McCann, the mother of the missing eight-year-old, Madeleine, with her account of the disappearance in Portugal four years ago. But Rowling denied reports that she had written the book which is due to be published next month.
In a statement a spokesman for the author said: "While JK Rowling has been a long-term family supporter, her only part in bringing the book to publication has been in supporting the fact that her literary agent was also representing Kate. Beyond this, she has not been involved in any aspect of the writing, editing or publication of the book."




************************


We will eagerly await comment from Team McCann or Transworld... their silence and the fact that Ms Rowling herself felt the need to make the statement says it all really.


I suppose it's too much to ask the media to get their sources and stories right...?


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



So, are the papers going to tell us where this information came from - who gave it to them? They didn't just pluck it out of thin air did they?

Of course that was clear from the start.
Kate and Gerry could not speak the truth if their lives depended on it.
Or that of Madeleine.

JKR helped write the book appeared in national papers, while retract in pink ink appeared in local rag?

Spread of falsehood has reached nationwide while pink retract is discussed in local leicestershire pubs. The half hearted retract implies reluctance to retract but forced to because JKR's denial had appeared in national papers.

Wonder whether pinky is having a nice cuppie over at the mc-kitchen?

I love it every time the McLiars do a media blitz.
They invariably end up with a foot in the mouth (or at least they should) and less believable than before, for as much as that is still possible.

Not that they will be blushing of shame, no, the true sociopaths they are, they will be infuriated about being caught (again).

Official Find Madeleine Campaign
Thanks everyone for the lovely comments. We had to set the record straight because that info was not true.

Thanks for pointing that out, are we going to get the record set straight on the rest as well? or is it going to come at a cost to the public having to purchase the book to find out the truth?

Somewhere I just read that Madaleine case or the McCanns themselves are on JK Rowling website.
They aren't.
Mrs Rowling must be feeling very uncomfortable, seeing herself involved with those riff raff people.

anonym@5 You are right, that's what the hack wrote in the Mirror article: "(...)Her official website features a Madeleine section giving details of her case and phone numbers to contact with information (...)" - but if you go to J.K.Rowling Official Site there isn't a single mention of the McCanns Fund campaign.

The confusion of a media spokesperson, 14 April 2011

The confusion of a media spokesperson 20 Minutes Online (German)

Kate McCann has written a book about the disappearance of her daughter Madeleine, while receiving support from the author of Harry Potter, it was said two days ago. Well, that's wrong. The message is part of a confused public relations strategy.

14. April 2011 10:47

Only two days ago it could be read in the British press that the Harry Potter author JK Rowling had participated in the book which Kate McCann has written. In it the mother recounts her "true story" about Maddie, who disappeared in May 2007. In the original message, which the McCanns own spokesman Clarence Mitchell apparently let the media publish, the reader got the impression that JK Rowling had not only provided literary support, but also provided Kate McCann with the necessary contacts to her publisher.

But now it turns out that the announcement was incorrect. As the "Leicester Mercury" reports, the spokesman for the McCann family later felt obliged to revise his statement, "on account of the many media reports it must be made ​​clear that JK Rowling is not involved in the book at all - neither in the writing nor in the publication". The Harry Potter author had supported the McCanns in the search for their daughter, said Mitchell, but that was all.

Why the misunderstanding?

On various Madeleine forums the false report was received with horror. Clarence Mitchell is also referred to as "brazen" and "influential" in terms of the publication of media releases in the British media. The McCanns are only concerned about money, write indignant users. They would know that just mentioning the name of JK Rowling, for the book, which will come out in bookshops on 12 May, would ensure it sold better, is their opinion. Finally, they would have "their army of top lawyers, PR people and shady private detectives' to pay. Among other things, the name of lawyer Michael Caplan is mentioned - in 1999, he prevented the extradition of Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet to Spain.
