  • Authonomy
"New Beginnings" made its first public appearance in March 2010, on the Harper Collins website, Authonomy.

The idea behind Authonomy was that authors shared their work - fiction, non-fiction, poetry, etc - and their peers were invited to offer comments, advice, and constructive criticism.  If a book was deemed worthy of the attention of the editors, then it was 'backed' by readers and would slowly climb the ranks towards the Editors' Desk.  At the end of each month, the top five books were scrutinised by the Harper Collins editors and if the editors liked a book, then a publishing contract would be offered.

I made the decision in February 2012 to remove the extract of "New Beginnings" on Authonomy, as it had been obvious for several months that I no longer had time to participate in the community. Unfortunately, this also removed the 182 comments and all the data regarding support received for the book. Lesson learned!
