authonomy is a unique online community that connects readers, writers and publishing professionals. It was conceived and built by editors at HarperCollins Publishers.

authonomy invites unpublished and self published authors to post their manuscripts for visitors to read online.  Visitors to authonomy can comment on these submissions – and can personally recommend their favourites to the community.

HarperCollins hopes to find new, talented writers we can sign up for our traditional book publishing programmes – we’ll be reading the most popular manuscripts each month as part of this search.

So,  get spotted: www.authonomy.com

It’s called Shortbread, and though they’ve just started, it looks like a very professional outfit.

Just as at the Viewfield, tea and coffee are again being provided.  So there’s no need to bring your own!

You can get a map of the location here, and you can find out all about the hotel here.
