Gold star on Authonomy!


Midnight last night saw the first five novels, chosen on Authonomy by members of the site, which will be read by Harper Collins editors. The top books were:


SPAMMER by Sylvia
Fiction, Crime, Thriller

TORBREK...and the Dragon Variation by Lexi Revellian
Fiction, fantasy

THE STONE FABLES by Toscka
Fiction, Historical Fiction

HAMELIN'S CHILD by DJ Bennett
Fiction, Crime, Thriller

BOOMERANG by Alan Hutcheson
Fiction, Comedy

These books are all quite different, quirky, and very well written; all, I would say (casting modesty aside) worthy of the editors' attention, and all voted for by readers who had read the first chapters, and believed them to be good.

(I do hope the links work, as Authonomy is still in beta)

  2. Well done!

    Will HC read the whole of Torbeck, or only the opening chapters?

  4. It is, isn't it Anne? Though there are others just as good in the top twenty, which I hope will make the top five.

    HJ, they will read the first ten thousand words of each book. Though in the case of Spammer, I doubt they'll be able to stop...
