Authonomy for Writers | HarperCollins

If you are a writer (published or not) I think you should check  They are “on a mission to flush out the brightest, freshest new writing talent around.”

So far I am finding it helpful. The only drawback is the race to the editor’s desk, which has people asking you to shelve their book because they shelved yours so they can get a higher ranking and get picked for a review by the editors of HarperCollins. This practice beats the purpose of the site which is to get the best manuscripts to the editors. I shelve books only if they grab my attention and hold my interest; it is irrelevant if the authors shelved my book or not. By the same token, I want them to read and shelve my book only if my writing is good, they have a real interest in it and they see its value. Having said that I think the site is great for new authors and this is their link: If you write, it behooves you to check it out.
