Why? Simply because I'm trying to believe her when she said she wished it would have stayed secret longer. That's why.

It's clearly not about sales at this point for her, so I'm going with the assumption that she wants to break away from everyone's stereotypes about her and her writing. I'm sure she'd like to write something that turned out to be something other than "a book by that woman who wrote Harry Potter." That's probably best achieved using a pseudonym at this point. But I'm guessing that's at odds with the financial strategies of everyone else who makes a living off of her writing. "You mean wanted to stay unknown with regard to this book? Oops! I'm so sorry. I had no idea."
