And if you’re a reader, blogger publisher or agent, authonomy is for you too. The book world is kept alive by those who search out, digest and spread the word about the best new books – authonomy invites you to join its community, champion the best new writing and build a personal profile that really reflects your tastes, opinions and talent-spotting skills.

Authonomy are now thrilled to announce that they will be launcing a digital publishing programme dedicated to authonomy’s best authors! The books will be hand-picked by the authonomy Editorial Board, worked on by HarperCollins’ finest publishing teams, and published as HarperCollins digital originals across all possible devices.  This new HarperCollins list will look to publish one book a month, starting in January 2012. Most importantly, all of the titles will have been discovered on the website and will be published digital originals. The bestselling titles will go on to have print editions.”
