This bank holiday weekend, inbetween some gardening and gigging and various cold drinks, I finally got around to checking out authonomy.com, HarperCollins' new community site for authors. The idea is that writers post their work on the site, readers comment, and the most popular manuscripts are read by HC. It's kind of like an electronic slushpile with added bells and whistles. Does it work? Only one way to find out, so I've uploaded the first few chapters of my novel, Sunday League, 'a funny and gritty football fairytale set in the WAGs-to-riches world of modern football' it says here. P.S. Gold star to anyone who can advise which song this post's title is a lyric from.
