I have recently become a member of the Authonomy website and have to say it really does have a fantastic community feel to it and everyone has a really helpful attitude.
I made the cardinal sin of going straight in and posting details about The Logos before I had even introduced. I then had a number of polite messages sent to me suggesting I post a proper introduction to myself and the first few chapters of The Logos so that the people on the forum could read this and give feed back.
I promptly did this and have been overwhelmed by the amount of feedback from the users on the site.
I love the way this site works. Although it’s run by Harper Collins, the whole thing is community driven.
The site members get to read and comment on the books they like and also get to “Back” them by added them to their virtual book shelve. At anytime you can see the most popular books as the site carries a top ten.
So if you writing a book and want feed back from other people, this is a great website and community to get involved in.
One final thing – one of the people that contacted me to read The Logos is currently living in Busan in Korea and has sent me so much useful feedback I just though he deserved a mention. He also did a great publicity shot for me – see below
So Man in Busan, thank you
