Traditional or Nothing Extra Tidbit

I just read today's Writer Beware Blog post about a new site from Harper Collins UK which allows authors to post partial manuscripts. The work is then read by the community at large, rated and occasionally, HC UK will review the top ranked works for possible publishing.

The tidbit I'd like to point out is this paragraph: Indeed, it’s central to the authonomy concept that a writer with a proven readership is often more valuable to a publisher, not less. Book companies now regularly snap up volumes from high profile bloggers and promising self-publishers with existing readerships. It’s a good thing to prove that you’ve the enthusiasm and the skills to help make your project a success.

Here's the link to the FAQ section where it appears http://www.authonomy.com/FAQ.aspx#value

Good Writing & God Bless,
